Becoming a business owner is a dream come true. It begins like any honeymoon phase, full of promise and exaggerated optimism. But all too often, many business owners find that their honeymoon phase is cut short quickly when the demands of day-to-day operations leave them ragged and time-strapped.
At Assignment Allies we often wondered: why does the honeymoon have to be just a phase? Why can’t your "giddy-in-love” feeling survive the life of your company? We think it can and should.
The first step of extending your company’s honeymoon phase is a realistic view of what it takes to run a company. After some extensive research and just plain asking, we compiled a list of the top 3 challenges that companies face and how we can offer a solution.
Get ready to fall in love with your company (again) and stay there.
1. Being everything to everyone
In the beginning (or maybe even still), handling every business task or email yourself was a necessity or an extension of your need to control the quality of the work produced. While a valiant intention, that control and lack of delegation quickly becomes counter-productive for you and your bottom line. If you are not focused on the product, service or specialty that generates your profit, then you will quickly find that you are wasting your time, money and peace of mind.
Solution: Outsourcing menial administrative tasks does what no amount of money can buy – provide you time. At Assignment Allies we can be your recurrent task administrators. Just ask.
2. Trying to grow your company without wasting resources
As your company takes off, you find that you need to hire help to meet the current demand. But, as a business owner you are worried: how long can you afford to keep your staff on payroll? While it would be nice (and profitable) to foresee how long sales will continue and provide the budget to keep an extended staff, the truth is every market shifts and sometimes suddenly.
Solution: Buy assistance on an “as you need” basis. Assignment Allies offers hourly packages to make getting work done flexible to your bottom line and your “right-now” needs.
3. No budget to hire an exceptional employee..yet
You are growing and require more staff, but your current budget doesn’t allow room to hire the best right now. Should you bite the bullet and hire with your current budget, possibly sacrificing skill level just to get the additional help? Or should you continue to manage the additional workload with limited staff until your profits increase?
Solution: Our team is built up of experienced professionals. We can help fill the gap between needing quality assistance and hiring a permanent skilled employee.
Let us assist with your extra workload until you can hire the best. We know you deserve it.
