Having adequate administrative support as a business owner plays a vital role in the success of your endeavors. Small business owners often struggle with deciding when and how to expand their team. Admittedly, it is a very big step but it’s also one that you can’t afford not to take.
As an Administrative Consultant, I’ve encountered potential clients on the fence about rather they should invest in partnering with someone who provides administrative support or continue to struggle with the demands of running their business alone just to save a few dollars. Well, here are four reasons to partner with an Administrative Consultant without hesitation:
Less Stress, More Success
Let’s face it, the more an individual has on their plate, the less motivated they become. It is extremely difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle and work productivity balance when you’re the one having to handle every single detail of your business. Partnering with an Administrative Consultant allows you to take some of the stress off your self by allowing someone to help you manage the day-to-day without the red tape of maintaining an actual employee.
Just Because You Can Do Something, Doesn’t Mean You Should
There are a number of things I can do but that doesn’t mean I want to burn myself out trying to do it all. For instance, I know how to do my own hair but best believe I look forward to my bi-weekly appointments with my hairstylist because I know she can get it done more efficiently. Forty-five minutes compared to a couple of hours to be exact. Obviously the extra time it takes me to do my hair is best spent doing something more productive and the same can be applied to your business practices. Why waste valuable time trying to be a Jack/Jill of all trades when you can delegate those tasks to someone who is actually passionate about the work and skilled at getting it done much more efficiently.
If You Stay Ready, You Won’t Have To Get Ready
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten frantic calls from the “Let Me Think About It” pool of potential clients wanting help with implementing something for an opportunity they just received. In most cases it’s either too late or a hectic mess. Unfortunately, they were so caught up in their day-to-day obligations that they didn’t devote adequate time to long-term planning and creating a foundation that can properly support new opportunities. Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.
A Good Investment is Always Worth It
While most people tend to be primarily concerned about the expense, they forget to take into consideration exactly how much they will actually be benefiting. We all know the saying, it takes money to make money. Well finding the right admin person for your business is definitely an investment that is sure to give you a good return. An Administrative Consultant plays an essential role in the overall success of an organization. With the right person, you are guaranteeing yourself the opportunity to perform at a higher level. Often referred to as the backbone; the level of professionalism, productivity and organization skills we bring to the table make for a highly beneficial partnership.
So that’s my two cents on the matter. Don’t let reluctance cause you to miss out on achieving what you set out to do with peace of mind in the process.
