3⃣ signs its time to hire admin help

As business owners, it’s not unheard of to want to do everything on our own. And that can make sense in the beginning stages of our business. But there comes a time where the pain of traveling the road alone outweighs the discomfort of letting someone into the business we’ve built. And around this time, our business will show us a few signs that we’re overdue for help. ‧ Here are 3 signs you’d likely see on that road: 🌿 𝗠𝗢𝗥𝗘 𝗗𝗢𝗜𝗡𝗚 𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗡 𝗗𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗠𝗜𝗡𝗚 You spend more time in the day-to-day operations of your business than on the strategic planning needed to move your business forward. 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣 𝙢𝙖𝙮 𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚: → This could mean you’re sending invoices, answering emails, or shipping your product.  And then having trouble fitting in the time needed to create new opportunities for growth. → These tasks likely aren’t your zone of genius and tend to feel like something you ‘have’ to do. 🌿 𝗦𝗜𝗡𝗚𝗟𝗘 𝗣𝗢𝗜𝗡𝗧 𝗢𝗙 𝗙𝗔𝗜𝗟𝗨𝗥𝗘 “Single point of failure” is a fancy ops term that means: if one step in the process fails, the whole thing fails. 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣 𝙢𝙖𝙮 𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚: → If you’re down, your business is down. If you’re sick, your business is sick.  If you’re on vacation, your business is on vacation. → And you not only know this but you’ve experienced it. You haven’t taken a vacation because of it. You’ve pushed through being sick in order to tend to your business. 🌿 𝗢𝗨𝗧 𝗢𝗙 𝗕𝗔𝗟𝗔𝗡𝗖𝗘 You’re losing your balance - not only with your personal time but also in your ability to keep juggling everything. 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣 𝙢𝙖𝙮 𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚: → Balls are starting to fall (and I know... you don’t drop balls usually!). → You’re starting to work more than you’d like in order to fit it all in. → You’re beginning to wonder how long you can continue at this pace… not only due to the level of work but because your passion has started to wane. ‧ Does this sound too familiar to you?
