Research from Business Mentors New Zealand found 80 per cent of business owners surveyed had felt a sense of isolation. “Feeling secluded is a sensation faced by a lot of business people around New Zealand, those in a start-up are especially affected,” says Kelly Tutbury, Accountant and Managing Director at Tutbury & Associates Limited.
Being a business owner and operator can be isolating with an estimated 70 per cent of the 400,000 small businesses in New Zealand are owned and operated by just one person.
A great way to overcome feeling isolated and alone is to partner with a business advisor such as Kelly Tutbury.
As a single business owner, you can benefit from the experience and expertise of a business advisor.
“You will also discover more about yourself and your business while receiving a competitive edge over other similar businesses.”
Here are Tutbury & Associates Limited five quick tips for solo business owners:
Have A Network
Without internal business partners and employees, you will need to depend more on your external network. “Create reliable network of people who can vouch for your work, link you to other leads, and can be support system for other services or products that you may need,” advises Kelly.
Prepare For Change
External forces can change on a whim which can affect how you continue to do business. Keep yourself up to date on industry news, national legislation, and expanding your skillset, you are better prepared for such changes.
Know Your Finances
“Make sure you’ve set up program so you can see how much money you’ve made each day, week, month, or year,” comments Kelly. Knowing how much money is going out or coming in, will allow you to know what you can and can’t afford to purchase such as new equipment.
Manage Your Time
There is only one of you, and there are only 24 hours in a day, so will need to plan them out to use them effectively. Break down the goals into a sequence of small stages you must take to accomplish them. By concentrating on these smaller tasks, list won't seem so overwhelming, and you'll start to make real progress.
Make sure you make use of all the small-business apps out there to help your one-person business run smoothly. For example, you can put your business documents in the cloud which means you can access them anywhere. You can also start accepting payments from customers on your mobile device.
Being a business owner, you are required to perform many different tasks and you can often spread yourself to thin. “A business advisor can help you solve business problems or bridge a gap in your knowledge and skills,” says Kelly.
With many years of business experience under her belt, Kelly has an abundance of knowledge and skill in all stages of business growth which is perfect for helping you navigate all the areas of business ownership and practices successfully.
