In our experience, the operating style of business owners falls into two groups – they either delegate tasks or complete all aspects of the work themselves. Whichever type you fall into, growing pains in your business can affect you at different stages of your business growth. Be reassured: it’s ok to ask for help. So when is the right time to consider enlisting support?
Be kind to yourself
It’s World Kindness Day this month, so now is as good a time as any to be kind to yourself. A good starting place to consider is whether there is room for improvement within your processes. Change can make your life easier, and will also enable your business to outperform strategically.
Ask yourself honestly…
Do you spend most of your working week completing day-to-day tasks, allowing no time to think strategically?
If you progress the work yourself, do you have the relevant expertise or do you need time to learn? Is this really the most effective way of spending your time?
What would your clients say if they knew you were doing the £100 jobs rather the £100K jobs? Furthermore, are you missing out on the £100K jobs, as you’re working on the £100 jobs?
Think about the fee that you charge to your clients. It’s very likely that it is a lot higher than that of the support you need to enlist help from.
In addition, outsourcing certain aspects of your work can help free up your time to focus on expanding your business.
Work ON your business
Imagine that you spend your days working on your business instead of in your business. That you’re sitting firmly in the helicopter seat, flying high over the landscape, assessing how things may impact your business, both present and future.
See yourself no longer getting sucked into the day-to-day operations. Instead you are in the helicopter being strategic, developing, growing…
