So, I am writing this as Covid-19 is really getting to grips with the UK and there is no doubt that we are facing challenging times that are completely unknown to us as it could not be predicted or prepared for. So as business owners we are just going to have to do what we can and as for me it will be business as usual for as long as I can.
There is no doubt we are all going to experience a fair amount of downtime in our businesses but should look at the positive as this will give us time to have a look at all those jobs that we have been meaning to do but not had the time or the inclination to do them (usually stuff you can outsource to a Virtual Assistant!). I know I have some of these to do but thought I could suggest some:
Looking at your business going forward and you are looking for help growing it in the future, a task you can look at doing – write down all the tasks you do in your business on a weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis – really break it down and put them in a list. Cross out all of those that need to be done by a specialist, those that need to be done by you and those you like doing, any left? Maybe some of those can be done by a Virtual Assistant. Just another little thought of something you could do.
Hopefully there is something there that you find useful, I know that we are a big networking community here in the UK and with groups and meetings being cancelled it’s great that the groups are responding by going online so a great way to keep in touch and keep growing your business and look for a buddy/sounding board to bounce your ideas or concerns with. In the meantime, stay safe and well – keep calm and carry on!
