Practical Pointers
Identify tasks you are not proficient at or do not enjoy and delegate them to your team. Make a list of tasks to delegate and assign them to team members or outsource as necessary.
Implement systems to track and manage inventory and sales data, especially important for e-commerce. Invest in analytics tools and review inventory data weekly to avoid over or under-stocking.
For early-stage businesses, consider outsourcing bookkeeping and hiring a fractional CFO to manage finances cost-effectively. Research and engage a bookkeeping service and fractional CFO to ensure professional financial oversight.
If you're a business owner, objectively assess your financial skills and seek support where needed. Take a financial literacy course or workshop, and consider consulting a CFO to get a professional audit of your financial strategy.
Develop a structured business model and a hiring roadmap that evolves as your company grows. Draft a business model that includes your long-term goals and a phased hiring plan based on projected growth milestones.
