If you’re in the construction business, then you’ll know that there are a million and one things that you could be doing right now. If you didn’t have to eat or sleep, there’d probably be enough jobs that you could work twenty-four hours a day, seven-days a week and you’d still not get everything done you wanted to.
What you probably don’t know though is that this type of thinking is potentially harming your business. In fact, it’s potentially killing your business’ growth. This article is comprised of three of the things that Rossi Consulting suggests every business pays attention to. If you want to know what Rossi Consulting is, then you will find out at the end of the article. For now though, here are the three things you need to think about:
The biggest cost of business is doing everything yourself.
Business owners have all been in the same position at some point: You don’t want to give money away and outsource, you can’t afford full-time staff, and there seems to be so much about running a business that you don’t know, that you feel that there’s a never ending amount of work that only you can do.
It’d surprise you to know that doing all of these jobs is far from a money-saving solution. In fact, it’s probably costing you more in opportunity costs than any other mistake you’re making. While you’re concentrating on writing the company’s blog, or chasing up the receipt that someone should have left you, your concentration is not on growing your business. As a business owner, that should be your main focus – growing your business.
The second biggest cost is learning everything from scratch.
In addition to the above point, you’ll find that when you go from being an employee to being a company owner, it feels like you have to wear every single hat. You have to be a marketer. You have to be an accountant. You have to be a project manager. The fact is, regardless of how long you’ve been in the construction business, you are not an expert in all of these things. Some of them, you’ll be a complete beginner at. There’s no point in trying to reinvent the wheel when you can hire someone to help you and give you a blueprint.
The third biggest cost is administrative time you’ll never get back.
Business owners have all been there – admin. Administration is the vampire of the business world. If you let it creep up on you, it’ll suck your life out and leave you with no time to do anything. Maybe that’s an exaggeration (somewhat), but it’s true. You can be swamped by administration. If you get help from someone who has already done what you are trying to do, you can overcome the pitfalls.
