We all have the same 24 hours in each day but how we USE those same 24 hours will determine your results and level of success. Have you ever analyzed what tasks you accomplish during the day, especially on those days where you question where the day went and wished you had an extra eight hours to finish your to-do list? Knowing where you spend your time is part of the equation for optimal productivity.
Are You a “Do-It-Yourselfer”?
When you’re first starting your business, it makes sense that you want to watch your budget and hire very little, if any, outside help. After all, you need to make money before you spend money, right?
Do-it-yourself business owners take on every task that deals with sales, marketing, billing, and operations, plus everything else that doesn’t fall into those categories. But if you’re working on closing a sale, it stands to reason that you may not have the time to develop a strong marketing campaign or to create content for your website or social media channels.
Do-it-yourselfers are typically stretched too thin and become an expert at nothing. Very often these business owners feel behind, and more than likely they’re always playing catch up with what their clients need and trying to build or salvage those relationships instead of forging the way to bring in new business.
Are You a Business Leader?
Business leaders know they can’t do everything themselves. They have grand plans for the future of the business and know what their own strengths and weaknesses are.
These leaders will shop around for expert advisers, coaches, support and leadership to handle the myriad of tasks involved in the backend of the business so they can dedicate their time to finding new clients and building those relationships while their team handles their own areas of expertise.
The Question is…..Can You Go from Do-It-Yourselfer to Business Leader?
Of course you can! Find a business consultant who can analyze your backend operations and give advice for automating certain tasks or suggestions for who to hire next.
Consider hiring a virtual assistant to handle communications from your clients and prospects and perhaps even a social media manager to keep your accounts current with posts and to engage your audience.
Think of how much time you will save if every one of these team members do their own jobs within the same 24-hour time period! You will definitely experience faster growth in your business but making that first hiring hurdle can be tough.
