Franchisees and small business owners of all kinds:
Business suffering because you’re bogged down with administrative mess? You say you didn’t sign up for bookkeeping when you dreamed of your new business?
Not focusing on what you love is a BIG mistake. And guess what? There are people out there who LOVE bookkeeping. Yes, it’s true! And, thankfully, they are ready for hire.
EVEN IF YOU KNOW HOW
You choose a business because you are following your bliss, your passion, your venue to champion your skills. My guess is you never gave a damn about bookkeeping, ordering, payroll, maintenance, or many of the duties that are so necessary to run a successful business. Just because you know how doesn’t always mean you should.
I bet you’re still mowing your own lawn, too.
Time for a wake-up call
So why aren’t you hiring people to do those tasks? Or at the very least, delegating it to the person on your staff who does enjoy and excel at that kind of work?
The excuse I hear over and over is that you can’t afford to hire another person to handle those chores. You can’t afford NOT to!
Start with part-time help
There are many people who are taking on clients like you on a part-time basis:
- Virtual Assistants
- College Interns
- Stay-at-home Moms/Dads who are dying to talk to adults and keep their fingers in the work world part-time
- consultants who want to make their own hours, and more.
Yes, you will have to monitor their work, but do hire someone to do what you hate or is eating up quality time in your business. Get back to your business at hand. You will be less stressed without those duties hanging over your head and they will do a better job with the full focus you need. That is what THEY love to do.
