Here at Time Etc, we know that owning a small business is an infinitely challenging job.
Between dealing with enquiries, balancing your books, updating your Twitter and finding good suppliers it’s pretty easy to lose sight of the bigger picture: growing your business successfully.
Many business owners need assistance, but with the cost of employing staff sky-rocketing they are increasingly outsourcing the help they need. That’s why they approach us here at Time Etc Towers in search of remote help from a Virtual PA.
What a lot of people struggle with once making the decision to outsource is how and where to begin with delegating tasks to people. We’re approached by loads of business owners who need help but aren’t sure how to go about handing out tasks.
It’s simple: look at your day to day tasks and delegate all the ones that take up your time but don’t necessarily help grow your business. Having worked with hundreds of business owners over the years at Time Etc Towers, we are more than aware of how difficult this can be. But, trust us, once you figure out what you can outsource and put your trust in your shiny new PA you’ll really notice the difference it makes to your day-to-day life – and your business overall.
The key thing to remember is that, while delegation can be daunting, as a business owner you need to be free to fight fires, look after key important clients or plan for the future – not stuck in the day to day.
