Tips to Tame the Admin and Stay Ahead of Business Trouble | Episode 95

Show Notes:

Admin and paperwork, a necessary evil and time suck for shop owners. The thing that overwhelms us at times and we put off. Then it weighs on us. 

But in this episode, I want to help free up some brain space for you and share some tips that help me stay on top of things.

As we know, tax season is here and these strategies will save you both time and money. We must make sure that things like payroll, inventory, loans, and mail are all in order and we create solid habits that will help keep us organized and reduce that overwhelm.

Build time into your schedule, go virtual with bookkeeping, have a proper system for paperwork, get organized, and more. Listen in – it will save you some headaches, time, and money.
