Re: What Are You  Avoiding?


Every small business owner during the course of their day, week, month or year avoids doing something in or for their business.

* Some owners do not like confrontation and will avoid it at all costs
* Some avoid angry customers
* Some avoid paying bills on time
* Some avoid firing people

What are you avoiding? What tasks or situations are you not addressing in a timely manner? What causes you stress on a ongoing basis?

The answers to these questions are different for everyone.

However, there is a solution. Maybe not a solutuion for everything you’re avoiding, but a good part of it can be outsourced.

Step 1: Write down ALL the things you hate doing in your business. Everything! Make your list as long as it needs to be. It is what it is…

Step 2:  Then go through your list and check off ALL the things that you can assign or outsource to someone else.

If you hate doing customer service, you NEED to find someone else to do that job. If you are in the habbit of not paying your bills in a timely manner, hire a book keeper or a accounting service to do this for you.

The more things you can get off your plate that you dislike and or causes you stress, the better you can be as an owwner and leader of your business.

Do What You Do Best…

Re: Do What You Do Best…

A few years ago I heard NY Times Best Selling author Robert G. Allen  say” Do What You do Best and Outsource The Rest.”  Mark Victor Hansen is famous for saying, ” You Can’t Make $500 Dollars an Hour Doing The $5 Dollar an Hour Work.”  

These two quotes have made it to the wall in my office.  The concept behind “Marketing You Can Use” was to share and provide marketing tips and strategies for the small business owner.

Sometimes at business owners, we get caught up in the day the day activites. It could be as simple as photocopying a few pages of a report or refilling the paper towels in the restroom. This is the perfect example of doing the $5 dollar an work but expecting $500 dollar an hour return on time invested.  

I am not saying you should never do some of those activites. Just remember the two quotes at the beginning of this article.

“Do what you do best and outsource the rest.” Robert G. Allen
“You can’t make $500 dollars an hour doing the $5 dollar an hour work.” Mark Victor Hansen

Happy Marketing,
