As a business owner, you’re a jack of all trades. And we’re sure there are days when you feel like a master of none.
After all, there’s an awful lot you have to do every day. From the moment the alarm goes off in the morning until your head hits the pillow at night, you’re running. Going. Doing.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
You can ease your burden and focus on the things that truly need your attention by delegating supporting business tasks to trusted employees and skilled business partners. It’s just a matter of choosing the right staff or partner for the right job.
Wondering which tasks might be ripe for moving off your plate? Read on …
Still keeping your own books? If you’re great at it, that’s fine. But if it’s burden – and if you aren’t particularly good at it – consider outsourcing. Just be sure to schedule regular check-ins so you know what’s going on.
Computers. Ugh, right? Well, for most of us, anyway. If someone on your team is adept with updating and maintaining software, let them have this responsibility. Or, hire it out. These days, given internet security concerns and other issues, it’s vitally important to stay on top of this.
As the business owner there will be times when you need to step in. But there’s no reason you need to handle all customer concerns. Empower an employee who has good, natural “people skills” to take of the day-to-day stuff.
Unless you’re running a marketing business, it’s pretty safe to say marketing isn’t your core skill.
