We all have identical 24 hours in every day but how you make use of those 24 hours determines your level of success. Have you ever analysed which tasks you complete during the day, particularly on those days where you question where the time went? Knowing how you spend your time is part of the equation for success.
Are You A DIYer?
As a start-up business, it makes sense that you watch your outgoings and not employ outside help. Do it yourself business owners take on every job that deals with sales, marketing, invoicing, and operations, plus everything else that goes into running a new business. But if you’re working on making sales, you can’t have the time to create content for your website or social media channels. You are stretched too thin and become an expert at nothing. Very often these business owners feel overwhelmed like they’re always playing catch up instead of focusing on bringing in more business.
Do you consider yourself to be a Business Leader?
Business leaders are self-aware and accept they can’t do it all themselves. They have grand plans for the future of their business and see where strengths and weaknesses lie. These leaders will be aware of expert advisers, coaches, and assistants to handle the numerous tasks involved in the day-to-day running of their business so they can devote their time to finding new clients and building relationships while their team does what they do best.
Can You Make The Transition from DIYer to Business Leader?
Of course, you can! Find a business coach who can analyse your business operations and give advice for automation of tasks or suggestions about who to hire. They may suggest a social media manager to keep your accounts up-to-date with posts and to engage your audience. Hire a virtual assistant to manage your administration and invoicing while you’re working on sales and marketing. Think of how much extra time you will have in your day if these team members are doing these tasks within the same 24 hour time period. You will undeniably see faster growth in your business but making the decision to let go can be tough.
