Pre­cious time

Craftseller - - Q&A - JUNE CATALDO, TAUN­TON

The or­ders for my busi­ness are pick­ing up, which is great, but I’m on my own and am al­ready strug­gling to man­age. There’s just not enough hours in the day. What should I look to farm out? CLARE SAYS: Book keep­ing is a good place to start when look­ing to take on ex­tra help, for two rea­sons: 1. The job will con­tinue to get big­ger as your busi­ness grows, swal­low­ing up more of your time and 2. You can’t af­ford to let your fi­nances get out of con­trol. An hour a week is prob­a­bly all you need at first, but meet with your book keeper reg­u­larly to dis­cuss is­sues and look at the fig­ures to­gether. The work can of­ten be done off-site, which can be help­ful if your workspace is tight.

Bring­ing in out­side help can be a cat­a­lyst for busi­ness growth
