As summer fades away, I’m sure you’d love to hold onto some of your personal time and avoid working long hours. But if you’re an entrepreneur, how do you please all of your customers without giving up some free time with family and friends?
Here are a few suggestions to reclaim your personal time:
Do you have data entry, accounting, writing, or other administrative activities that need to be done? Get these tasks out of your way by hiring a virtual assistant.
These professional workers are available throughout the United States with different skill sets at various price-points.
And because you are hiring a service rather than an actual employee, you don’t need to worry about all of the legal and tax headaches involved in the hiring process.
Check out the International Virtual Assistants Organization at http://www.ivaa.org/ and other, related sites to find someone to fit your specific needs.
2. Find an Intern.
Many high school and college students are looking for work to add to their portfolios. Offer to provide opportunities to help them succeed.
You’ll get some inexpensive help, and your interns will get valuable, on-the-job experience to use in their future careers. Just be aware that you’ll need to take some extra time to train these newbies carefully.
3. Get help from your kids.
If you haven’t already done so, have your kids help you with your business. Not only will they learn important skills and the importance of working for an end-result, but you may be able to use this as a tax deduction too.
Check with your accountant to see how you can make this work for you.
Instead of saying goodbye to summer fun and thinking you just can’t get away from work, be positive and creative. Look for people to help you finish tasks outside of your core area of expertise.
It may take a little effort to find the right helpers, but once these workers are in place, you’ll have more time for yourself and be able to get the relaxation you need to truly be successful!
