While October brings tales of phantoms, a more tangible ghost is gripping our economy – inflation, with its relentless demand: "Give me more, more, more!"
It's evident in car and home prices, and even in the bag of potato chips. More air and fewer chips — that's true across industries, right?
The shrinkage in service and inflation of expense leads directly to big stress. How will I cover all of my costs? How can I hire anyone? Is this the new norm, or will these prices fall again?
The bills tug harder on the bank account, sparking inner dialogue: What can I cut? Is this trip really that important? The renovation can wait, right?
If you're a budgeter like me, you're already asking such questions, but there's more urgency now with inflation. It feels so bad to see costs go up and up.
And if you don't find answers, fear sets in. Your economic outlook is a dark cloud on the horizon, and your road is heading right into that storm. It feels impossible to avoid flash flooding unless you've found a way to cover yourself.
Inflation is one of those macro forces we don't control. But we have to play it as it lies. This is the lay of the land right now.
So, are you doing everything you can to combat those big fearsome forces? How are your processes holding up? Do you feel you can find room for new efficiencies to offset costs, or is your business operating at peak performance?
My husband and I have run multiple successful businesses over the years, and one of our primary joys in life is helping other business owners realize their earning potential while improving their overall satisfaction in life.
We did that for ourselves first, and then we set out to help others do it. We started HireSmart Virtual Employees nearly a decade ago to help businesses link up with smart, driven Filipino virtual employees.
When our clients partner with us, I also provide consultation sessions where they can discuss whatever they want, whether it's how to get the most out of your virtual employee or a broader talk on business processes and efficiencies and how to overcome inflationary pressures.
Ultimately, we are a "business success service" with a focus on virtual employees, but our aim is your overall success, and we want to work with you to reach your goals. We do this with a set up unwavering core values which youi can learn more about by reading here https://hiresmartvirtualemployees.com/about/
We all feel the effects of inflation, that ghost in the economy saying, "Give me more, more, more!" but there's a lot we can do to counter rising costs. I enjoy talking with our clients about all their options and helping turn their fears into confidence.
I'd love to chat with you if you're feeling that pinch of inflation and want to talk about your options. Click https://hiresmart.as.me/Discover to set up a free consultation at your convenience.
