Delegate, Focus, and GROW Your Business

Why Spring Cleaning is a Great Idea for Your Business

The idea of throwing open the windows to let the sunshine into your business while banishing the funk of a long winter is one as old as time. However, clearing away old habits and inefficient workflow tactics can be more empowering and more impactful than cutting clutter and cobwebs. Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth and reimagining old ways of thinking. In fact, springing for a little bit of cleaning up your business might just be the best decision you make all year.

How To Get Your Business Organized

In all of the excitement for a new season to begin, it’s only natural that you should want to clean and organize your whole life to get ready for the warmer weather. Your home is an obvious place to get started—the windows will need washing, the siding will need power washing, and the garden will need tending to—but how can you also get your business organized during this season of renewal?

Chucking the Baggage of Bad Work Habits

Most entrepreneurs and small business owners reach that point thanks to a healthy helping of know-how and a fiercely independent streak. Taking ownership and responsibility for every aspect of your venture is commendable, but it’s not always effective. As the ship’s captain, you need to be able to hand off certain tasks so you can focus on what’s on the horizon. That’s not possible if you’re juggling all of today’s tasks while playing catch-up on the things that slip through the cracks.

The inclination to clean up your work habits and brushing up on your delegation skills is crucial, but it only takes you so far. The willingness to hand off tasks is a difficult skill to master, but it’s not the only barrier to help.

Why Your Business May Need A Fresh Solution to Old Problems

Bringing on full-time or even part-time help means you’ve got new expenses. Not just salary, benefits, and perks, either. Hiring means new tax regulations, the need for infrastructure to support on-site staff, and the expense of inevitable turnover. In addition, your need for a pair or two of skilled hands may outstrip your ability to afford employees or be a case of diminishing returns in the end. Fortunately, there’s a way to unload your plate a bit without emptying your wallet.

Engaging full-time staff means full-time expenses, but it also requires a full-time demand for help. Most of the time, your needs aren’t static from one day to the next; they’re often in flux based on several factors. So instead of taking the permanent step of bringing in on-site employees, it’s often more cost-effective and far more valuable investment to consider outsourcing to contracted virtual assistants. This means you’re only paying for what you need, but you’re never out in the cold.
