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.

To Your Business Success,

  2. Robby:

    I think the number one item on my list will be:
    “Write a list of things I hate to do…”

    Maybe not to confront the things I dislike, is the first item to do. But I am not sure to be ready to do that…

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hey, Thanks for the comment. Think about it, if you outsource just one of those things you hate, your plate gets a little lighter instantly!
