It is nerve-racking to relinquish control of something that you have created. As a business owner, you may want to maintain control of everything because you are scared to allow others to help you. However, the time you spend on tasks that do not generate revenue can be spent more effectively on growing your business.
It is in your best interest to delegate management of the operation to someone more capable, so that you may concentrate on the tasks that are most suited to your strengths. Hiring a remote team can be a big advantage for your business as it will enable you to concentrate more on generating-revenue tasks. Rather than having to juggle multiple responsibilities, it will allow you and your business to flourish, generate MORE revenue, and enjoy your entrepreneurial journey.
The Thriver joining us this week is Nicole Grinnell, Founder, and CEO of Bosun Solutions, a staffing and recruiting firm that holistically solves clients’ problems by providing the right remote team members for all back-office roles who can operate a business. Nicole takes her passion for organization, assisting, efficiency, and providing the solution to her client’s problems. Thinking of her father who was forced to juggle it all, she now finds joy in providing the relief small business owners need allowing them to grow, be profitable and enjoy their passion.
Nicole shares with us the signs that business owners should look for when considering whether to seek more support and the value of having a remote team that allows you to focus on generating revenue for your business.
