You can’t do what your business needs on your own anymore. There is just too much to do. You waste time doing jobs you don’t like, don’t know how to do or find boring. You aren’t growing your business, you are just surviving!
Is this you?
You aren’t alone, many businesses are in this same situation. As you build your business, you have more to do to keep your business working, so you are a success.
Enjoy that feeling and stop stressing that you can’t get work done. It’s not possible for one person to do it all anymore. Start building your team.
Step 1 – You!
Your team starts with you. Accept you need someone to help you. It can be casual, part-time or full-time and online or offline. The first step is realising you need someone to help you.
You can keep on doing it all yourself, and keep needing help. You can decide you can’t do it yourself anymore, and accept you need someone else in your business.
You remain in control, and decide what they will do for your business. It’s what your business needs. Each business is different in what needs are required. What my business needs, could be very different to what your business needs. (more…)
Find out how you can record your Skype call with Evaer for your client and have it work every time. Stop worrying about your recording software letting you down by failing or not making a great recording.
I started looking for a product to use with Skype to make sure I was always able to offer my clients a good recording of our call. I had tried Camtasia and it would sometimes have it fail or suffer an error whilst waiting for it to produce the video. I tried Audacity and had some problems with my soundcard. Audacity is a great program, however I had conflicts with some of my audio hardware. Making sure it worked every time was becoming a pain.
I need a software that will allow my business coaching and consultant calls to be recorded and be confident it will work every time. I use Skype almost exclusively for all of my calls, as I’m in Australia. (more…)
Wants vs Needs is really important with outsourcing.
I wanted a graphic designer to make images, create logos, make flyers and all that fiddly stuff that just takes up time if you aren’t really good at it. What I really needed was a VA who could find images to put on my blogs and posts, add in a watermark, make a few corrections and give it to me.
My want would have cost at least 3 times as much as what I needed and would have been a waste of money.
So I sat down and worked out what I wanted in my business, writing a long list of all the things I would love to have. Then I started going back over that list and marked what my business needed. The second list is ALWAYS much shorter. (more…)
