It’s no fluke: to run your business smoothly, you need to outfit it with smart tools. There are essentials you need to consider, ranging from technical to hiring employees. How do you know it is time to invest in either one?
When you can’t keep the sales pipeline going because you are too busy filling orders!
Simple as that.
Imagine You Are…
…working at a fast food joint.
Imagine, you are taking orders, right? Let’s say you’ve taken five orders. Before you can take the next one, you realize these five need to be fulfilled right away or else, these clients will demand money back or grow pretty impatient.
Now, you start making their orders. Well, now you have people still in line growing impatient while you fulfill the orders.
What can you do?! You are working by yourself!
This doesn’t consider the drive-thru scenario either but hopefully you understand the point here.
Depending on what your business is, you may need to hire bookkeeper goldcoast. This is extremely important as a solid bookkeeper can keep you on the right track, save you hours of time and money, help you stay organized come tax time, and much more. Basically, a great bookkeeper will reduce your panic and keep you sane!
The rest depends. Are you an online entrepreneur? Do you own a shoe store? An eatery or a restaurant? How about the technical stuff like a system to take orders, track orders, a printer/copier/fax machine?
Are you the face of your company, meaning are you the sales machine?
Decide what role(s) suit you the best. What is your mission? What do you do well?
The answers to the above two questions will make or break your business. If you don’t choose your mission carefully, your business will suffer in many ways. An unhappy boss can lead to an unhappy environment, unhappy employees, and lastly, unhappy customers who are your backbone with all due respect.
Then, slowly, build your team…. then?
