Business mess picOne thing that all of us entrepreneurs fall victim of is creating one big mess in our businesses.

Sometimes it is temporary mess and sometimes it is long term fatal disaster.

The most important point is to STOP!!

Yes, realize that you are going to go insane if you continue to ignore it, so just stop and deal with the mess.

First point:
Here at Accounting Guide & Taxes we hold entrepreneur mastermind workshops where we go over working in “The Zone”. One of the key points of “The Zone” is to know when it is time to delegate.

That old cliche “if you want something done right you have to do it yourself” is part of the 90% who do not make it past the 5 year survival mark.  Finding quality help is juts as important as finding new clients for your business.

If what you have to do is not something your great at, have a passion for, and doesn’t give you a substantial ROI (return on investment) then DELEGATE it to someone who does have a talent for the task.

You will end up better off sticking to the money making activities you enjoy and that you excel at.

If your thinking to yourself you can’t afford good help, the truth is you can’t afford not to.
Find a joint venture partner if you can’t bring someone full time to free yourself from being the jack of all trades.

Second point:
Clean up that desk!

If your desk looks like someone is buried under it, how do you think your brain feels?

Every Monday before you even turn on your computer make sure your desk is in order and all the “to-do” piles are taken care of.  Oh, yea and you know those drawers you haven’t opened in months….do the same thing! 

If you really want to transform your business and you have the freedom to work remotely, get rid of the desk all together.

Work a couple weeks at your local coffeehouse and you will realize how much space you actually need to be effective!

Final point:
Stick to what you do best.

There will always be a chance to make money by doing something outside your area of expertise, but the successful 10% never chase fool’s gold.  Resist the temptation to take on something outside your niche without already having the business model in place to do it right.

That means if you do not have a system for production, marketing, sales, and post follow up then this is not something you should take on.

If you can stick to these simple points within your business plan, you will see your stress levels start to become productive profit levels for your business.
