You have worked for years at large companies with many centralized support departments. What is it like now, having to do everything yourself?
|The last company I worked for we had more than 200 in the one office that I was working in and I really had a lot of support. I had 2 assistants; I was at an executive level in the company. I had 20 people alone in my sales and marketing. So we got a lot done. And I certainly didn't do it all myself. So I think another challenge that I found in a home based business moving from that corporate setting where there was a lot of support and I was able to delegate tasks was actually having to do just about everything myself. And you know most people aren't good at everything and I'm certainly not. I have my strengths and my weaknesses. And my core competences focus on and I found I really needed to prioritize on my time. I have a to-do list that I use every single day. I sit down at that the end of the day and fill up my to-do list for the next day. I work through that each day and I try to prioritize. And I'm also not good at things. I am not great at accounting; I am not great at a lot of the details and the bookkeeping and some of the operational functions and what I had to do is I had to find help. I had to hire a bookkeeper. I had to hire a CPA to help me with my taxes. I needed to find some outsource partners for the web and for fulfillment and customer service and some of the things that I do with my e-marketing business and I needed to outsource I needed to find partners because I wasn't good at those functions and that has helped me immensely to focus what I am good at and outsource what I'm not.|
