Many budding entrepreneurs wear multiple hats. Especially if you are a sole proprietorship – you might find yourself everything there is to be done for your business. While frugality might be vital to the health of your start-up, efficiency is also critical.
So, how can you be more efficient? A laser focus on your core competencies will keep you from wasting your most precious resource – your time.
For example, lets say you are a CPA striking out on your own. Until you land a few clients, you might be be your own receptionist, website developer, social media strategist, and even janitor. But once you have a few clients, it will serve you well to outsource some of your non-CPA activities.
Just because you’ve landed a few clients, that doesn’t mean you should let your website fall apart or stop posting on social media. But, you only have so many hours in a day. Maybe the website and social media stuff is a stretch for your knowledge and talents yet decidedly important to drawing in new clients – outsource that. Just because you are trying to make sure those client’s taxes are filed on time, you can’t let your office become filthy and a turn off to those same clients – hire a professional cleaning company.
As your business grows, you will need to focus more and more of your time on your core competencies. This means either bringing on employees or outsourcing. Either way, delegating those tasks outside of your core competencies will free you up to focus on what you do best. That is the recipe for success and growth.
