After launching your business, it can feel like you’re off to the races without a finish line. After all, there are people to pay and lots of overhead to worry about. It’s no wonder why first-time or new business owners struggle to feel as if they’re ever doing enough.
The problem is, the very reason you started your business was to serve a need in your community, grow a brand, or otherwise engage with others to sell your products and services. Why you didn’t start a business was to spend all day in Quickbooks, on calls with vendors, and doing the day-to-day tasks that need to be done. At the expense of everything else, of course.
We get it—and in the beginning, every business owner has to wear multiple hats. But that doesn’t mean you absolutely have to do everything!
Here’s how you can grow your business by doing less—not more!
The Power of Automation
It’s often said that if you want something done right, you’ll need to do it yourself.
It’s not bad advice, and in some cases, it’s absolutely what you need to do.
However, you’re a business owner—not an IT expert. You’re also not an expert in point of sale software, or delivery management tools. And the good news is, you don’t have to be!
Automating or otherwise entrusting others to handle these sorts of tasks is a great way to leave the hard stuff to the experts. In a way, this is also freeing you up to handle tasks only you can.
Whether you’re selling supplies you’ve made, beauty products, pet products, or just about anything, odds are, you’re the expert in that field. So why not let the experts in business management handle the smaller tasks for you?
The Vendor Paradox
Once you’ve accepted that lots can be outsourced to others, what exactly can be outsourced?
Here’s where you can often run into what we like to call The Vendor Paradox. It goes a little something like this:
You recognize that you need to outsource and automate tasks to operate more efficiently. So you get a vendor for one thing, a vendor for another thing, and soon enough, you’re just as busy as you used to be! Instead of spending all your time doing these tasks, you’re spending all of your time on the phone telling others how to do these tasks.
At the end of the day, there isn’t a savings of time, so why pay the cost?
To truly unlock the power of automation and avoid the Vendor Paradox, you need to find a trusted source who can truly do it all.
