Before you begin "raking in the dough," you must learn one important aspect
of entrepreneurship... time management. Without time management, it will be
difficult to nurture and aid your company to its projected success level.
After all, "time is money." The first thing you must do in order to achieve
proper time management is to organize your life and your business.
Prioritize everything, even if they seem to be of a trivial matter. Make
"mini" goals to help you obtain your desired goal; these "baby-steps" will
help to ensure that things are getting done, even if they are achieved
slowly. Take time to create an action plan with your employees. Actions
plans are things that everyone must do together in order to ensure likely
success (for example, scheduled meetings, visits, etc.). Once this action
plan is established, assign different tasks to members of your work force.
These tasks help spread out the work, as well as acting as a "mini" goal
towards your ultimate goal. Set deadlines for all your goals, action plans,
and tasks. This will help everyone to stay "on task" and drives the
personal company to perform more speedily. However, remember not to rush
things; "good things come to those who wait." So as you continue your quest
towards business success, remember to organize, plan, and take all the small
necessary steps. "Slow and steady wins the race."
