If you are in your business by yourself you will know all about limited capacity. You may have a great business concept but when it relies on you to do everything there is going to come a time when you reach your capacity. What do you do then? Do you take on the expense of bringing on a team? How many people? What aspect of their business do you train them up to handle? Are there other options available to you?

Thinking and Working Smarter

bigstock_Change_-_Open_Door_To_Success_6755029If you have a successful business model chances are that your business will grow very quickly. Soon you could be at capacity and then you have to decide if you want to expand your business or just stay at the level you are at. Chances are if you are in business then you are a motivated individual, you won't want to stay where you are, you will want to look at options for expanding your business. A lot will depend on the type of business you have and what kind of expertise you will need. I faced a situation a few years back where I decided that I wanted to cut back on my working hours while still growing my business. It meant I had to look for smarter ways to do things, for ways in which my business could work for me and generate an income while I wasn't around. Technology has provided some wonderful tools for small businesses. For a start when looking to employ people in your business you now have the option of working in a virtual environment. This means that you do not physically need to employ people in your business. You can get them to work for you on a freelance basis and only when you need them on a specific project.   This cuts down on operational costs and allows you to be able to afford a higher calibre of employees because they are only working for you part time. I have an amazing team of eight people that work with me yet all of them I contract in on a freelance basis. It has provided me with flexibility in my business and ensures that my business continues to grow.

Tips for Expanding the Capacity of your Business

•      Use technology to your advantage. Look at ways in which you can sell products online that don't require much in terms of fulfilment from you. They are products that are packaged and ready to go. This can provide some valuable income for you without demanding any of your time or resources.
•      Automate and integrate systems so that you can manage your time more effectively. Have reminders in your phone or on your computer to prompt you to follow up with certain tasks.
•      Use the virtual office environment to your advantage. Contract in the expertise as you need it and be able to grow your team on a flexible basis without placing too much strain on your overheads.

Realizing that you are reaching your capacity in business can be an exciting place to be. It can force you to look at ways to work more creatively and efficiently so that you can continue to grow your business. Step up to the challenge that it represents and it can take you and your business to a whole new level of success.

How many things do you have to do today?   Or this week?   How many of those things are springboards for the bigger and better things that are waiting on the other end of your procrastination?   The things that are going to lead you and your business to satisfying success!

Often, many of us feel overwhelmed with all of the things we need to do by allowing the end results of a virtual to-do list mill around in our heads.   Maybe your current brain-contained list sounds a little like this:

• build a website
• schedule a teleseminar
• research trade magazines
• start outsourcing – find a VA

How many times have these items (or similar items) drifted around the outside of your brain, bouncing off the inside of your skull, clouding your view of current events, and dampening your motivation?

If these words in any way resonate with you, let me share with you my prescription for de-cluttering your head and getting things done.

In order for any grand task to be accomplished, it must first be dissected into small, manageable task chunks.   For instance, building a website might involve defining your website budget, asking business associates for webmaster recommendations, interviewing copywriters, and choosing styles for the individual pages.   And the best way to break that large task into smaller tasks, without further cluttering your brain?   On paper.

To-do lists are the ultimate back-patters.   Think about it.   How good do you feel when you accomplish something that you've been putting off?   When you can check an item off of a list, no matter how small, you'll experience that feeling, and will, in turn, feel motivated to do it again and again…ultimately accomplishing the large task.

Here are some tips for making a list that will work for you:

• Keep the end in mind, and only include tasks that will contribute to that end.   For instance, don't commit to writing a free report just because it sounds intriguing to write a free report, or because you're proficient at writing reports.   Everything on your list should contribute to your desired result.

• Remember to delegate, wherever you can
.   And mark that delegation on your paper!

• Start with the items that you feel most confident in completing. If you're most proficient in research, hit the internet and get to know some webmasters.   The quicker you can get that first checkmark, the quicker you'll fuel your own motivation to tackle the tasks that aren't as simple.

• View your list-making as a brain dump. Give your tasks to the paper, and envision space clearing in your head.

• Understand that the writing of the list is a checkable item. Simply making the list brings you one step further to accomplishing your grand tasks.

• Don't stress over every little detail. As you conquer the notable tasks on your list, small details will fall into place.   For instance, if you're planning a workshop, you'll need to establish a date, a time, a method of advertisement, and you'll have to know its main benefit (the problem it will solve).   You're not going to have to figure out how coffee will be served or whether lunch will be chicken salad or turkey.   Once your motivation is in full swing, the details will fall into place as you move along.

• Commit to your list. Feel the momentum that's generated when you accomplish even the smallest of tasks and use that to propel you forward…but remember, you can't experience that momentum unless you keep the check marks coming.

Some of us are natural list-makers.   Others manage our busy lives in our heads…or at least we like to think we do.   No matter our natural or learned tendencies, there is a wealth of potential just waiting to be realized…on a blank page.

Building your list of potential clients is necessary for landing deals, filling seminars, and realizing the revenue that you desire.   But in order to build your list of interested parties, you must first organize your thoughts into manageable pieces of doable tasks.   There's no better method for accomplishing this than a list.

You want a list of for-sure, ready-to-buy prospects and clients, right?   Then get your pen, grab your paper and prepare to clean your brain's RAM with your new list!
