Are you a small business and:
- trying to run your business
- develop your product or service
- market your business
- deal with the day-to-day bookkeeping
It isn’t always easy to do everything that needs to be done when you are running your own business, which is why it is a great idea to outsource the things that you aren’t very good at, so you can spend your time more wisely and focus on what you do best, which is sell your business! However, I know it isn’t always easy to just outsource everything, as there are costs when you do that, and if you are just starting out, the cash isn’t always available.
So what do you do if you can’t outsource? You have a couple of options – you could find someone who is trained and has experience in the field you want to outsource – let’s say bookkeeping in this case, and you can see if you can come to a mutual working agreement, where maybe instead of paying with cash, you trade services. This can work really well as long as both parties agree to terms beforehand and both parties feel they are getting a mutually benefitting deal.
Another option is to try and learn how to do some of the things you aren’t very good at, without spending a lot of money. So you could join a facebook group, or follow people on twitter, and read blogs that are published providing easy to follow tips. People who are experts in their field won’t always give away all of their secrets, but you can pick up some very good hints and tips on how to do the basics in things like marketing, publishing a website, handling the bookkeeping and accounts, and many other aspects that businesses need to be involved in.
