Automating Your Business So You Can Enjoy the Weekend

What the Business Pros Know with Brad Roling

Being a business owner means you’re on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are just some things you must handle. While your expertise is important, some tasks can be automated or delegated to make your business run like a well-oiled machine. This will ensure you can enjoy your weekend without having to worry about what’s happening inside your business. Let’s walk through a few ways to accomplish this: 

  1. Identify where you can become more efficient. Efficiency won’t happen overnight, nor will it be easy. Are you in the trenches of your accounts payable/receivable process and worried something will fall through the cracks? Setting up Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments is a simple fix for this.  ACH is a great option for paying vendors or employees via direct deposit to ensure all payments are made on time.
  2. A business can’t run smoothly or consistently without proper procedures in place. This can be a simple pen-to-paper procedure, or you can invest in a procedure management software. Creating processes for every action in the business will help someone take over, so you can take that well deserved weekend. 
  3. Take a few tasks and delegate them to trusted employees. Armed with your well-written procedures, you’ll be able to seamlessly transition tasks to someone other than yourself. 
  4. Are there tasks that need to be done day after day? Automate them! There are several platforms out there that will help you automate tasks from publishing social media posts to syncing customer data. Ask the vendors you already work with if there are any ways to simplify the processes. Can you start making auto payments on your loans? Can your bank set up Remote Deposit Capture to scan your incoming checks from the comfort of your office? Don’t overlook these helpful tools.

You are not replaceable in your business, but you do deserve time to yourself. Automating and delegating tasks can be the key to being able to step away from your business for a few days. If you’re looking for ways to take things off your plate as a business owner, I’d love to talk! Mid America Bank has the tools to help you manage your money efficiently.
