Every business owner wants to see his or her business grow. The best way to achieve growth without compromising your daily operations is by ridding yourself of small responsibilities and focusing on major ones.
“In order to attain success and growth, business owners should pay someone else to do some easy, but necessary things,” exclaimed Issa Asad, Florida-based entrepreneur and CEO of Quadrant Holdings and Q Link Wireless.
Mr. Asad said business owners should pay someone else to do these 3 things:
1. Project Management
Project management can be quite overwhelming and time consuming. Every minute you spend managing your employees’ tasks and checking in on work, can be better spent in areas. These include tasks that involve directly growing you business and meeting more clients.
Most freelancers and outsourcing firms equip themselves well to handle non-core activities. When you’re looking for a third, party to handle your project management, only assign them the tasks that do not require a personal touch.
Take time to shop around for the best freelancer, outsourcing firm, or automated options in the market. A good automated option is Asana. This app helps the user reduce the time spent coordinating projects and managing employees by up to 50%. This will directly lead to an increase in productivity and revenue.
You can access this project-management app for between 21 dollars a month and 834 dollars a month for even up to 100 team members.
2. Eliminating Office Clutter
Copies of invoices, receipts and other small records can be quite difficult to sort. All the modern filing methods do very little to improve the situation. Receipts usually pile up and form an unsightly clutter in the office.
You can solve this problem by scanning these documents and sending them to be archived in a way that is easy to find in a service such as Shoeboxed. Shoeboxed will reduce your workload and allow you to grow your business without having to hire more people. You can try out such a service free, before you decide whether to pay or look for another one.
3. Office Maintenance
Office space in New York City is quite expensive. Here, office spaces go for between 27 dollars and 140 dollars per square foot. Incrementals and utility bills are not included in the rates.
You can opt for co-working or shared space in order to bring your costs down. A company such as WeWork, offers residents of this city an opportunity to bring down their operating expenses by allowing them to share office space and other services. These small businesses share many expenses such as utility and maintenance bills. In a way, this is like the subway of office space.
These companies handle all small daily tasks such as minor maintenance work, cleaning and the provision of security for all the offices. They also provide their tenants with other things like drinking water and coffee during office hours. These services are later included in the rent. These services provided allow small business owners to focus on things that add more value to their goals.
These companies usually charge between 45 dollars for on-demand workspace and 450 dollars for permanent or dedicated space. The slightly higher rent, more than covers any money you will have to pay an employee to get these tasks done.
