Are you doing it all alone?

Picture yourself in a perfect world, in your perfect office, running your perfect business. What’s your role? Do you have team members or are you still doing everything by yourself? How much money are you making? Do you have products? Do your clients rave about you?

Yes, our perfect worlds are goals certainly worth aiming for but if you’re still a solopreneur who’s doing every job by herself, it’s time to sit and learn the importance of these three words. Understanding and implementing these three little words will alleviate your stress and help grow your business. Truly!

Take a few minutes and think about what you want to accomplish in your business...

Understanding and implementing these three little words will alleviate your stress and help grow your business. Truly!

  • Automate – Plenty of admin tasks can be automated nowadays, which frees up time for you to focus on money-making ideas. Set up automatic monthly payments for recurring business expenses. Set up labels and filters for your email inbox. Collect customer data with forms on your website. Create automated email responses when people send in customer service inquiries. Use an autoresponder to send monthly newsletters to clients. Be creative…there’s an app for everything these days.

  • Delegate– Have you ever considered hiring an assistant or other virtual team member? All the automated tasks mentioned above can be completed in record time by an experienced VA, while you focus on your social media presence and connecting with your audience. Or hire a social media manager to keep your followers engaged. Upgrade your branding image by hiring a professional graphic artist and a photographer to take premium headshots. Delegate tasks to experienced experts who can troubleshoot problems and complete tasks in half the time it will take you to do it. Trust me - it's worth it.
  • Eliminate – Analyze your business practices and ask yourself if there’s anything that seems archaic or that isn’t worth the time. Sometimes this is an older way of doing things, like manual bookkeeping or inventory tracking. Just because you’ve been doing it this way for years doesn’t mean it can’t be updated or even eliminated. Set aside time every quarter or at least every year to investigate new software or platforms that can automate your coaching practice or eliminate unnecessary tasks so you can save time and ultimately, money.
