Solo professionals don’t need employees
Lots of potential entrepreneurs blanche at the idea of having to manage or oversee employees in order to have a successful business. Their own experience as a manager was not good and their experience as an employee being managed by others is even worse. That is why solopreneurship is such a wonderful model. When you are a solo, you do not have employees. You are a solo. So, how do you run a business without employees? You build a team of professionals dedicated to your success.
You may hire a team to perform all the administrative tasks such as web development, social media, office support, marketing administration and certainly bookkeeping and taxes. Maybe also photography and copy writing.
Employees are focused on the hourly wage – not your bottom line. Employees have to be told what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. Sometimes, you don’t always know – especially if you’re a solo business owner. This is not true when you hire help on a business to business basis, not employer/employee. Outsourcing tasks is an entirely different relationship.
In this episode of Better Smarter Richer Jackie’s going to share some strategies to get your business done without dealing with the expense and frustration of employees.
