When you start a business to make money online from home, do you find yourself wearing all the hats with a bootstrap budget?
Chances are high you are the head of your business strategy, accounting, marketing, sales, customer service and product/service manufacturing departments.
You may be wearing ALL these hats because you are just starting out. And that’s OK, it can be a big advantage for you to do this.
First of all, no one can implement the vision you see better than yourself. Second, by sacrificing in the beginning, you learn what it takes to do the job well.
So when you’re ready to outsource, hire a team, or purchase some fancy catch-all software, your expectations are clear and you are far more likely to make the right decisions from the beginning.
Until that time comes the best thing you can do for your business is to streamline and/or automate your non-value add work with free or low-cost tools.
