Sometimes our creativity can come head-to-head against efficiency—it may not go well with our ability to manage our tasks and finish what needs to be accomplished. On the other hand, being efficient may not produce the brightest of ideas or results. Creativity can be a very tricky thing; but just as knowing how to manage our time, we can incorporate it into any technical process or procedure with the right mindset and perspective.
Are you ready to scale your business?
Many entrepreneurs struggle to grow their business because they focus on the wrong things. Instead of working ON their business, they work IN it.
Sure, there are tasks that need to get done inside your business, and you want to ensure that everything’s done right down to the tiniest detail. But here’s the rub, if you tend to focus your energy on these non-core time-consuming tasks rather than performing the crucial activities which can propel your business to the next level, your business is doomed to stagnate. FOREVER.
Grasp the importance of this idea, and determine the key areas where you need to maintain your laser focus. Once you’ve done this, the next logical move is to get someone who can accomplish the other tasks that you’ve decided to remove from your plate.
However, if you are not yet ready to hire a full-time employee or are simply uninterested in doing so because of the “headaches” that come with it (e.g., recruitment process, payroll, providing benefits, training, workplace and equipment, and supervision/ quality control), there is another way to scale your business—it’s through outsourcing.
