Mastering craft of Small business
Running a small business is much harder than running a corporation. Surprising? Not if you're a small business entrepreneur.
As a promising business owner on a restricted budget you have to multi-task, juggle, prioritize and balance. Unlike corporations, you don't have a specialized professional team to help you manage, allowing you to focus on more critical business strategies.
Neither do you have the capital to afford such luxuries. At best you have about twenty employees that you need to train, supervise, motivate, schedule and pay.
You're the sole manager, running your business on a shoe-string budget with only 24 hours a day.
Given such stressful financial and time constraints, how can you successfully maintain a balance between excellence, efficiency, and improving productivity all on your own?
The answer? Think big.
Manage your business like the big corporations do. Corporations rely on efficient organization that is cost-effective. Yes, even big companies have budget (granted big, but not unlimited) constraints that warrant resourcefulness.
Today big businesses resort to business management software whenever possible to replace business processes that were once done manually, reducing costs of labor, time and human error.
Scheduling employees, for instance, used to be a tedious, time-consuming task before automated scheduling software made rosters, schedules and shift management a breeze.
