So look around and see what routine work you have been doing that is taking up too much of your time. What can be systematized to help free up your time, and what can be outsourced to a virtual team to support your business growth?
Misconception: I need a lot of capital to start a business
Many people have the misconception that a lot of capital is required to start a business. Some of the top items would be office rental, hiring of a few employees, setting up payment facilities, creation of contracts, invoices, forms and legal documents, marketing artwork and so on.
Besides hiring virtual support, most of these items can be found and leveraged online. There are free samples of all types of documents, paypal account to kick start your business, blog and website templates which do not cost you much. Free e-books can also be given away as a marketing tool that don’t cost you a cent. Office equipment literally free or at dirt cheap prices can be found online too.
So if we think deeper, there are so many ways we can leverage to free up more of our time and maximize our dollar as a business owner. What is important is the attitude we adopt. Perhaps we have been too comfortable being ‘uncomfortable’ for far too long and hence never took the time to make key changes which could help speed up our business growth.
