Why are you in business in the first place ?
If you're like most entrepreneurs you started your business with a passion for a product or service.
One of two things happened but probably with a similar end result:
You found it harder to be successful because there were so many "business" things to do which aren't your business OR you were fortunate to become successful and even MORE of your time is spent away from where it needs to be and instead on things like:
Accounting, Corporate Insurance, Employee Benefits, Leases, Workers' Compensation and on and on and on.....
So what are your options?
Do you think having an extra 2-3 hours per week to focus on why you started the business in the first place would help you grow the bottom line 10-20-30%?
You take the business personally and that is a strength but it can also be a weakness. In some cases a fatal weakness.
Many businesses suffer because owners and managers feel the need to do it all. You will keep your business from achieving its full potential by not getting the right help for the right tasks. Successful businesses will focus their best internal resources toward maximizing value for the customer.
Looking outside the company for assistance provides three major benefits:
*Efforts can be focused on the products and services you provide.
*Create greater efficiency by letting someone more experienced effectively manage "back office" tasks.
*Objective, blunt assessment of the company's performance.
