One of the main reasons that people go into business for themselves, besides wanting to help people and make money on their own terms is that they want to create freedom on their own terms.
However, many business owners find that they end up struggling with this and that they generally have less freedom than if they were working for someone else. This can be a very frustrating thing because as much as they love their business, they feel like they’ve just given themselves another job.
So in this post we’re going to share with you some of the simple ways that you can create more freedom in your business.
In order to create freedom in any area of your life, the best thing that you can do is to have systems and processes in place for everything that you do. This greatly reduces the time that you spend on tasks such as admin, communication, or any other thing that you have to do in your business, such as content creation. Creating systems and processes is certainly not as scary or as difficult as it seems – it’s more or less putting together a way to automate regular activities that you do on a daily basis by breaking them down into simple steps.
Outsourcing is something that is scary for a lot of business owners to contemplate – especially at the beginning. However, if you actually want to grow and scale your business, then you’re going to have to learn to let go since you’re not able to do everything all by yourself.
This is one secret that successful business owners have and that helps them to grow and scale their business and even operate multiple businesses successfully because they understand that their time is valuable and that they should only be focusing on the things that are directly related to growing their business – everything else can be outsourced or automated.
So, for example, if you want to outsource your IT to a company like NTS or hire an admin assistant for a few hours per week to do the things that you’re not particularly great at, then this is going to free up so much of your time.
Automating the tasks that you do in your business on a daily basis such as booking in calls with clients or potential clients, and even things like sending emails or proposals can really save so much of your time.
Whatever area you can automate in your business should be automated as much as possible without losing the aspect of human communication.
Have a schedule:
Starting your day and your week right with a schedule is the best way to create more time and freedom in your business by knowing exactly what you’re working on and when instead of just going in at the beginning of the day and tackling random tasks here and there and at the end of the day not really knowing what you got done.
You should have a schedule that plans out your week so that you know what priority tasks need to be done first, and everything else gets done in line with that.
Having a schedule is so important to spending your time correctly in your business and creating the much-needed Freedom that you desire.
