Too much to do? Maybe it’s just you.
In just the past two or three weeks I’ve heard something similar from a lot of different business owners. They’ve told me things like, “I’ve got too much to do, and I don’t know all of them.” Or “There’s just too much on my plate.” And “I’m doing it all myself right now.” I understand how overwhelming it can feel. Because I’ve been there. But I had to face the truth that was staring me in the face.
When there’s too much to do, there’s not enough YOU.
Most successful business owners find out (eventually or right away) an important issue to deal with. And whether they like it or not, the issue is almost always taking everything on themselves. Is that you?
Do you believe you’re the only one (or best one) for every part of your business? If so, then you probably just need a bigger hat rack. For all those hats you’re trying to wear. Maybe that’ll fix your problem. Of course, I’m being silly to illustrate a silly notion. And I’m not making light of your problem. It’s real. But to think you can do it all (run your business) alone is a little silly.
Even a freelance writer, the epitome of a loner, needs help. Sure, Stephen King can sit at his typewriter day after day and churn out more books. But you can bet he doesn’t do the editing, proofreading, and certainly not the publishing. Can you imagine how much longer it would take him to put out his thrillers? I seriously doubt he could have, or would have, written so many.
And you can’t churn out more of your business either, without getting some help. And I know you’re probably thinking, “But Ronda, I can’t afford to hire anybody. I’m still getting things going.”
Ok, here’s a a good reason to cheer. You don’t have to hire someone, right away, to start getting the help you need. A business system can help you automate a lot of your day-to-day tasks. And that can feel like a virtual assistant.
Especially on those days when you’ve got too much to do.
As it just so happens, my RondaReady business coach CRM system is that kind of business system. And just so you know, it’s a serious investment. But it’ll cost you much less than hiring a person (or persons) to do all it can help you do. From time management to customer attraction and retention to a full-blown operations manual. Like an old cereal commercial used to say, “It’s in there.”
So, are you ready to get serious about getting things done efficiently, faster, and better? If so, then you’re really, really ready to get ready, get RondaReady and…
