Re: OFFICE HOURS ARE OPEN! What Do You Need to Do MORE of...

Hey my girl, Julie!

 

Help me delegate!  I need a weekend off and an Admin Assistant.  Any good resources for that?

What @lynda said! And also...I'm experiencing a real summer crunch in terms of time. I need more hours in the day!! What are your favorite time-saving strategies for the days when every minute counts?

—> Hey @lynda!!! Whoo hoo for a week off, but a bigger whoo hoo for hiring an assistant! My assistant makes my life (and consequently my business) so much more amazing! 

 

I was very fortunate to meet her at small business expo, but I recommend checking out the International Virtual Assistants Assiciation (https://ivaa.org). They offer a referral directory and tools to help you decide what you need. 

 

Also, don’t forget to create a job description so you know in advance WHO you need and WHAT they need to know to help you SUPER SIZE your business!

—> ABSOLUTELY!! Plans are in the works, so stand by for details!!! Can’t wait chat in person at QB Connect!!

Love this question @EmilyCowan! Here is the down and dirty:

 

1) Do a brain dump of everything that needs to be done. 

 

2) Organize the list into 3 buckets - “As”, “Bs” and “Cs”. If you find yourself with a “D”... D stands for dump it!!

 

3) Now prioritize each bucket by 1, 2, and 3. If you have a 4, move it to the next lower priority bucket. 

 

4) COMMIT to COMPLETING the entire A bucket before doing any tasks in the other buckets - no cheating!!

 

5) Start on the next bucket and proceed from there. 

 

Emily, I promise, this system is MAGIC because it forces you to do the needle-movers FIRST! Besides, you COMMITTED remember? Smiley Wink

 

OK, so what’s your A1?

Hey @jessbru99568! First, I hope all is well on the home front... OK, regarding time, the reply I just gave @EmilyCowan is a great place to start. 

 

I also go back to yesterday’s question about what you should STOP doing. All tasks are not created equally so what can you dump, delegate, or delay ASAP?

I need to sell more products. 

What's a great strategy to add value to the customer's  purchase?

Hello @thebrainlair and way to jump in! 

 

Please reply and tell me about the products you sell, and in the meantime, is there a value-added upsale at the time of purchase that you might offer? Standing by!

Not sure if I am understanding this correctly, but here is what I offer:

 

Full service and customized bookkeeping and accounting services,

Payroll Services

Individual and Small Business Returns including S- and C-corps.

Office Organization and Workflow Systems

Education and Training

Consultation and Support

 

Value added services? Not sure what that means.  I am transferring to a value pricing system but that is different than value added services.

Now the hard part. Figuring what to let go of.

Re: OFFICE HOURS ARE OPEN! What Do You Need to Do MORE of...

You're so right, @lynda - and priorities can change on a dime. Sometimes I wish I could let go of EMAIL! This is exactly where I go wrong: I have my top priorities, and then I check email and the next thing you know I've spent an hour clearing out my messages and I'm still no closer to doing the stuff that was on my list in the first place.

 

@JulieatTheWELL, is there a handy strategy for separating the "put off for later" tasks from the "put out the fire" tasks? Priorities change, stuff gets bumped around depending on who's asking for what when, and figure out the buckets is not always as simple as you might think.

Totally off the subject, but I'm not receiving notifications for anything in this group. 

My apologies, @JulieatTheWELL I didn't see your message. 

Yes, everyone is doing good! Thank you! I think my problem is same as @EmilyCowan, I have everything organized that I'm going to get done. Then get to checking email, and find I have a host of other things not expected. Smiley Happy

Hey @jessbru99568, thanks for weighing in! I remember your response to @JulieatTheWELL's poll about email personas. Notification emails are indeed a great tool for staying on top of things. Let's get yours fixed!! I'll PM you Smiley Happy
