Outsourcing – the secret to working smarter, not harder for business success! – focus your energy and skills on what you do best.
Ask anyone who has fulfilled their ambition to grow a thriving and healthy business what their secret is and they will tell you that they focused their energies and skills on what they do best!
Why many business owners fail is because they try to do everything for themselves. They run themselves ragged sorting out their website; organising advertising; figuring out their daily bookkeeping, sending out invoices and chasing payment; fielding phone calls; spending hours if not days on administration. They spend their precious time on necessary, but very time consuming and energy sapping tasks that could actually be done by someone else!
Smart successful business owners learn NOT to get swamped by all these jobs.
Instead, they spend their time doing what they are best at, using their specific talents to grow their business, engage with clients and take their business forward.
So, how is this possible?
Well, they outsource the jobs that get in the way of progress. They use a telephone answering service to free up their time and ensure that every prospective customer enquiry is answered professionally; get bookkeeping support to keep their accounts up-to-date, and they hire the services of a brilliant PA to keep them organised and deal with the day-to-day administration.
“Oh!” you say, “but this sounds expensive”. Well, actually it is not. Because these days you do not need to employ an office full of staff. The smart solution is to outsource the tasks you can off-load, by buying just the specific support you need.
So, the choice is easy… continue to spend all your energy making the wheels just keep turning in your business, or are you going to take the clever route and forge ahead in the direction you really want to go whilst someone else gets to grips with all those other jobs?
