Are you a “Solopreneur” and trying to figure out how do I make it all work? I’m glad you asked and are even reading further to find out how! 🙂 A “Solopreneur” is one who often wears a million hats and there are ways that you can make it work for you.
Here are just 3 ways you can make it work:
1) Time chunk! What is that? You probably do this and don’t even know it! I time junk every thing. “Time chunking” involves dedicating or setting aside time to do that one thing and that one thing alone. This is a way to keep your schedule. This blog is a part of my “time chunk” activities. Mike Vardy describes “time chunking” as the concept of “breaking up your day into larger chunks instead of reacting to constant interruptions. The more chunks of time you can devote to specific tasks, the fewer start-up moments you will have, and your efficiency improves commensurately.”
1) Delegate! To who? Just think about the time you gain by delegating the duties that simply take up too much of your time! Your time is a precious commodity. A Virtual Assistant can definitely free up your time so you can take on more strategic initiatives. You can have projects that continue to move forward without having to take care of every detail.
2) Tap into your “Team 5!” Who would that be? It can be Marketing, Accounting, Legal, or Public Relations professionals. You can rely on these individuals to answer your questions in their areas of expertise.
You can make it work as a “solopreneur” and you don’t have to do it all. And if you need help with delegation, schedule a free consultation with us here to find out how we can help!
Have you been feeling overwhelmed lately? Do you not have enough time in the day? Are you looking to save time? Are you looking to focus on other projects to grow your business? Do you want to save money for your business?
Did you answer yes to any of these questions? These are just a few of the questions that are often asked by other business owners when considering a Virtual Assistant. It can be difficult going at it alone, but you don’t’ have to!
Think about this…delegating tasks/projects is the biggest way to free up your time! Just think about the time you gain by delegating the duties that simply take up too much of your time. Your time is a precious commodity. It’s easier to manage your time when you have support around you that understands your business and vision! Wouldn’t it be great to know that projects are moving forward without having to follow up on each and every detail?
In the book, “The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey” by Ken Blanchard and Spencer Johnson, one of the unforgettable lessons is how to save time to do what you need to do! You don’t have to work the long, hard hours and feel like you never get quite get caught up with the work you need to do!
