Today I would like to tell you about getting help. Provided that your personal projects are developing well, you are going to have more and more tasks. If you turn them into the bussiness, there will be a lot of accountancy job, bussiness management things, etc. Plus, there might be some regular tasks, which you can automate or delegate to someone, like sending out your products to your customers and dealing with problems connected to it.
But why do you want to do this? You need to remember that in any kind of bussiness, if you are not moving forward, in reality you are going back. Not being able to provide new services or products to your clients will eventually make you stay behind your concurence. Because in today’s running world people are looking for newer and newer things and solution each day, whatever you are offering to the market at this moment will get outdated relatively quickly (like other companies will have it updated or customers will already have your product, so they will not need to buy another one).
Getting rid of unneccessary tasks will give you more time for work that really matters. You’ll be able to upgrade your service or product or come out with the new one, what will provide for you and your family, when your old product will become outdated.
The other thing are preferences. I wish to be able to go for holiday with my family or just spend time with them without worrying about work. Having too much on your head might make it impossible. At the moment, all of my project are not considered to be my source of income, yet. They are in early development stage. However, I am already trying to determine, which parts of them I would be able to delegate or automate in the future and how am I going to do this. And of course, it does not have to be your way. I know people who just love what they do and money is just a by-product of something they would be doing any way. I enjoy spending time on my projects as well, but at the same time I wouldn’t like them to become something what I have to do. Also, I would like to be able to provide for myself without having to go to regular work, where my shifts are set and there are only limited days off.
So if you are like me, I highly recommend you to start thinking about delegating and automating your work at planing stage of your work. As some solutions might require some special steps, you need to take in advance, it might save your time in the future.
And with this thought I am going to leave you today. I wish you a very productive day and I will see you in my next post.
