Handling Time Constraints

It seems that every small business owner I talk to faces the feeling of not enough hours in the day compounded by the sense that s/he must do everything themselves, thereby sacrificing valuable personal time and their freedom. If you’re a home-based business, no doubt, your pressures are multiplied as you attempt to pull yourself away from the computer each night. This is why 2008 should be the year you commit to a “process audit,” whereby systems and procedures can be mapped out and prioritized. Armed with this information, you’ll be able to clearly see what can be delegated, automated, outsourced, postponed, skipped, or even forgotten—freeing up your time to do what only you can and making each day more productive. With an eye for economy, a penchant for problem-solving, and experience implementing efficient processes (including proposal management and development, partnership applications, and vendor evaluation), I'm ready to conduct your process audit. When you're ready to get serious about managing your time, drop me a line.
