Managing your Time
Is poor time management hurting your business?
Are you frustrated because you would like to grow your business, but there are never enough hours in the day to do so? Are you stuck doing so many mundane tasks, that you just don’t have the time to concentrate on growing and improving the business?
Short of time and money? Do you find that you are constantly short of money in your business – the debtors just don’t pay on time, and the suppliers insist on getting their payments promptly? Meanwhile, items such as rental and wages must be paid, and you are often being called upon to invest even more money into your business?
Most business owners and managers suffer from this problem – shortage of time and lack of money. This results in you being forced to spend too much of your time “plugging the gaps”, instead of having the time to grow the business and increase your profits.
Improving your Time Management
Are you able to decide what the more important tasks are which require your personal time and attention, and which less important tasks can be done by others? Do you make the most efficient use of your time, or do you tend to first tackle the jobs that you enjoy doing, rather than the jobs that need to be done!
Do you know how to delegate tasks to others?
If you want to grow your business, you cannot do everything yourself – you need the assistance of either staff or some specialist sub contractors. You need to decide which are the major roles that you should be doing yourself, and which are the less important ones, that you can delegate to others.
How can ClientEdge assist?
By firstly helping you to create a business plan, so that you can determine what the main goals of the business are, and what are the major tasks that are necessary in order to achieve these goals.
