Happy New Year!
It’s hard to believe it is already 2019! It honestly feels like 2018 just flew by! If you’re like me you probably take this time to reflect back on the last year and do a self audit of all things you accomplished in your business as well as things you would like to improve upon.
The one resolution that almost all of my clients seem to have in common, is a desire to take a step back from the hustle and grind of owning a business. As a business owner you should be focused on overseeing your business, and not working IN your business. So, we put together three ways that smart business owners simplify their business so they can work less and play more.
3 Strategies for Simplifying Your Business (& Saving Your Time)
Strategy #1: Audit
Something that is vital for growth and for removing yourself from the daily hustle, is to audit your business often. By audit I don’t only mean financially. While that’s important, there are other ways that your business could probably trim some fat or better use resources. It’s always a good idea to audit workflows, time, your brand and content as well.
Strategy #2: Delegate
This is one of the hardest things I see even successful business owners struggle with, but is crucial for growth and scale. Not only do you benefit from less stress and more free time, but you allow someone else to learn new skills and level up their career. It demonstrates trust and loyalty and can increase morale and productivity with employees.
Strategy #3: Automate
Technology has made some amazing advancements in areas that business owners can benefit from. One of the best things you can do for your company growth is to automate the parts of the company that don’t have to be manually handled.
One example is scheduling social media content or email newsletters in advance. It only takes a few hours a month to “batch” online tasks, and free your time to focus on the more important daily tasks in your business. Productivity for the win!
