If you're a hard working entrepreneur and struggle with your work schedule, you should take the next step and hire an assistant. We get a lot of customers asking us ,"How can I build my clientele," or "How can I grow my business? "
We always try our best to give the best advice and information. There are so many ways that you can grow your business and reach your goals. One way we try to help is by creating articles like this.
We recommend that stylists who have been struggling with time management or want to be more effective as a business person get an assistant. We did some research on why this might be the best business move for you.
Here are some reasons
why you should hire an assistant!
1. Reduce Workload
When you have a lot going on everyday, it's nice to have assistance on projects and time consuming tasks such as, emails, scheduling, appointments, social media, travel itineraries, etc. The worst thing you can do is lose control of your business. If you find yourself missing calls or appointments, you might lose a client or two.
If you reduce the amount of workload, you will have more time to prep for your creative process and have more free time in your personal life.
"Great things in business are never done by one person; they're done by a team of people."
– Steve Jobs"
2. Management Skills
The future is always bright when you think about running a business. Obviously it will have some challenges, but some of the best skills are management and leadership.
If you hire an assistant, you will be practicing leaderships skills. As your business grows, you may hire more people, and this experience will help you lead 1-50 people to reach your business goals.
We have a lot of stylists who are salon owners. That responsibility can be hard if you have no assistance. If you have been questioning if this is the next step for you, think about the bigger picture.
3. It will keep you on schedule!
Having a personal assistant will help out when your days are flying by and the time to handle important things are non-existent. Reduce the stress of handling everything at once by hiring a helpful hand. An assistant can help ease your stress levels before your next appointment or meeting.
