This is one of the biggest battles you face in your business from the start. There is so much to do that one person can’t do it all (and we are speaking from experience with this). After figuring out the best way to go about this, here’s our tips:
1. Brainstorm a list of ALL that needs to be done.
Literally make a long list of everything you’ve been doing yourself and what needs to get done everyday and for the week. Also, make an ABC list. A being the most important things that HAVE to get done.
2. Figure out what you can delegate to others.
This is a BIG one. Many entrepreneurs have a hard time delegating out work for others not because of control (well, some do) but for the reason they are so use to doing it all themselves. Delegating tasks is a way to help you manage your business not only better but it helps you get more done in a certain amount of time. For example, if you need to make a new list of vendors then pass it off to someone who can handle it and explain exactly what they need to do so there is no confusion.
3. Get an assistant.
If you’re business is growing and it’s been a “one person show” for the most part then it’s time to hire someone to do all of the little things you don’t need to focus on so you can on your business. You don’t realize how many “little” things add up in a day that cause you to run behind and not get the important tasks done. No, you cannot always predict how the day is going to go and we all know that things are going to happen that you can’t control while running a business. BUT you can get someone to help you maintain the small tasks while you make your business shine.
These are simple things but often we forget that it’s the simple things that make a business run like a champion. Focus on your goals but make sure you get the right things done to accomplish those goals and you will be way ahead of the game.
