June Checklist

I know it can be hard to keep up. Believe me, I know. But I can tell you from experience, that being organized and having a checklist is one way to start tackling the hard stuff. What I like about a list, is that when I get a brain freeze and don't know what I should do that day, I can get some ideas from my task list and see what I can wrap my thoughts around and actually get something done, rather than sit there wondering……. yes sometimes sitting …

Who To Hire First

How do you know who to hire first?
 
If you are doing your own shipping then I suggest hiring a part time person to take that over to free up your time. This is the most menial job you are doing (besides maybe cleaning your office) and can easily be passed on.  When I was shipping $1M a year, we had a guy who worked 2 days a week and got it all done!
