You know how some restaurants have big menus and serve all kinds of food, while others, like your favorite barbecue spot or pizza place, are just focused on a few items?
As a business owner, especially a small business owner, you’re like the restaurant with the big menu – you have to handle all kinds of tasks, you have a wide scope of responsibilities.
And you have to be capable and knowledgeable about all the parts and pieces of running your business. To put it another way, you’ve got a closet full of hats and you wear them all day, every day.
But unless you’re a solo operator (and hats off to you, if you are. . .), you have an employee or two or ten that assist you in certain areas of your business, they take specific tasks off your plate.
Your employees are like the pizza place or the BBQ spot – they usually only wear one or two hats and they become specialists in their departments.
One of your main challenges, as a business owner, is deciding what tasks to delegate and who you’re going to delegate those tasks to.
That’s where HireSmart Virtual Employees can really help you out.
