Running a business is hard. As small and medium-sized business owners know better than most, it’s a tough job being all things, to all people, all of the time. SME owners in particular often find themselves caught in a trap where there aren’t enough hours in the day to make the kind of changes that would save time and effort in the long run.
But by investing the time to do the one thing that will make every other thing easier, business owners can unlock greater capacity, more and new opportunities, and relieve the pressure on themselves and their teams. Setting up automated financial systems is one powerful way to achieve this, and it doesn’t have to be difficult.
We’re probably not telling you anything you don’t already know. Automating daily, repetitive, time-consuming tasks that are prone to human error – especially when working hard towards month and year-end – makes good business sense.
But where do you start when the to-do list is long, but the day is never long enough?
