As with most new businesses, a new year means new goals for EBR. Setting the goals is easy, but follow through isn't always. How do you successfully grow a business?
The first rule of any successful organization is that you can't do it all yourself. At some point, you will find that you have more tasks than time. This is when you need to consider hiring some help. Depending on your needs, you may want to start with a contractor or a part time employee and deciding what to outsource can be difficult. Start by creating a list of everything you dislike doing or that you are bad at in your business. How does that break down? Do you need to hire a bookkeeper? A marketer? Or maybe just an administrative assistant? Decide where your time is best spent and hire out the rest.
The second rule of success is to be strategic with your time. Need some help strategizing? Did you you know that SCORE offers free mentoring to business owners? You can find your own mentor at www.SCORE.org.
Surround yourself with experts in the areas of business that you are weak in and you are destined to succeed.
