Simple Business Solutions




As a business owner, or a manger in a company, you want to figure out and incorporate simple business solutions to make your life easier. When it comes down to it, you should not have to work harder than you need to, in order to run a successful business. In fact, I believe that running a business should set you free. If you are an owner, you have done amazing things and you deserve to have some flexibility in your life because you have worked your way up the ladder your entire life and now, it’s your turn to hire the employees, rake in the money (hopefully), and have some time to actually sit back and enjoy your life.

But, this is not just as easy as 1, 2, 3. You really need to fine tune your business plan to make sure that you are utilizing every tool possible to make your life just a bit easier. When it comes down to it, owning a business is hard work and you will have to fight tooth and nail for your business, but there are easier ways to do so. Here are a few simple business solutions to help you out along the way. Hopefully these will help you relax more and worry less when it comes to your business.


Work Smarter, Not Harder
This is pretty self explanatory, but so many people like to do things the hard way now just because that’s what they are used to. Please don’t be this person! One way to work smarter and not harder is actually by taking naps! Shocked?! I know I was when I first heard this. Inc. says, “Research shows naps lead to improvement in cognitive function, creative thinking, and memory performance. In particular, napping benefits the learning process by helping you take in and retain information better.

T
he improved learning process comes from naps actually helping your brain to solidify memories. According to Gawker editor in chief Max Read, "Research indicates that when memory is first recorded in the brain--in the hippocampus, to be specific--it's still 'fragile' and easily forgotten, especially if the brain is asked to memorize more things. Napping, it seems, pushes memories to the neocortex, the brain's 'more permanent storage,' preventing them from being 'overwritten.'" One study into memory found that participants did remarkably better on a test following a nap than those who didn't sleep at all.

Not only are naps beneficial for consolidating memories and helping you remember new information (handy if your job includes a lot of research during the day!), they're also useful in helping you avoid burnout, since research shows burnout is a signal that you can't take in more information in this part of your brain until you've had a chance to sleep.”


Hire (and keep) Unicorn Employees
This is one of the best ways to work smarter, not harder. Hire and keep unicorn employees. In this sense, unicorn means rare and invaluable. You want to find those people who want to work and who will bust their butts to make it happen, the right way. These are the employees that you want to keep because they will not only make your life easier, but they will most likely improve and help grow the company, as well. This means that you need to treat them well, promote them, and make them feel like they are valued. Keep those employees and make them feel not only wanted, but needed, as well.

Get A Copier Lease
This is very simple - better technology will make your life easier. When you go to a big-box store to buy your technology such as copiers, printers, etc. are you buying the correct products for your business? Will those products make your life easier? Will they be hard to keep up with, or will you have to buy another copier in a few years? Will that new technology integrate with your existing network? That’s a lot to think about when you are just trying to make a simple decision for your business.

Focus on Digital Marketing

Digital marketing is the way to get your name out there right now. Traditional advertising and marketing is still popular, but social media marketing, email marketing, SEO, and influencer marketing is where the gold (currently) is and it is the way that you are going to expand your business most. Sure, some people still buy magazines and newspapers, but how many millenials do you know that buy them? If I had to guess, it’s not that many. That’s because they are too busy with their phones, tablets, and computers and this trend is only going to continue to increase - trust me. The reason I believe digital marketing is so important is because you want to beat out your competitors. If you are focusing on traditional media, you are targeting the current business owners and managers which yes, that is a great thing because you need business now, but the up and coming business owners and managers are just as much, if not more important, because it is what will keep your business running long-term. Work on your digital marketing skills, hire someone that can help you like an SEO specialist, or a social media manager/expert, and improve your business by thinking long-term and not just short-term.
