Wearing all the hats in the business can be tricky as you know. There are things we are good at, can do quickly, are required of us, perhaps only we can do, and the things we dread……….but still have to get done. I know them all inside and out from running many companies of my own over the years, and have done everything from sweeping the floor to being interviewed on ET! and Access Hollywood……. and everything in between. Funny thing, is that most of my experts who commented below, mention that either they or "most entrepreneurs" don't like the accounting part of owning a business. Personally I LOVE numbers; love crunching them, figuring out cogs, the bottom line, playing with margins and cheering for profits. But numbers are not for everyone. My experts below mention outsourcing, rewarding yourself and just good old fashioned plowing through the tough spots first thing every day.
They have some great experiences to share and some food for thought when tackling your dreaded list.
One of the things I have all my clients do when their dreaded list gets big, is to make a list for an entire week of all the things you do each day. Then divide the list into the "A" list – things you MUST do yourself, and the "B" list – things others (like a VA) can do for you. Once you can afford to hire someone, get them on that "B" list right away so you can enjoy your "A" list life!!
Please let me know if you try some of these tips and how it works out for you.
