Six Necessities Small Business Owners Procrastinate

Procrastination conceptRhonda Abram, a publisher of books for entrepreneurs, says there are six necessities that small business owners procrastinate:

Meetings: Meetings can help you more efficiently communicate with your staff and help them to stay motivated. However, it is important that you have a specific agenda for the meeting; if you have nothing to say, then you are wasting everyone’s time.

Deadlines: It is important to create internal deadlines so that you don’t miss critical external deadlines.

Invoices: It is important to bill clients immediately after the work is done or the product is delivered. Delayed invoices can cause delayed payments and additional problems.

Planning: An annual planning session is crucial for long-term success. It is important to have these meeting with your employees as well as with a business professional, such as one of Boyer Law Firm’s business planning sessions.

Backing Up Data: What happens if your computer crashes? It is important to have a backup plan so that you do not lose all of your company’s work. It is suggested that you use a cloud-based service.

Customer Problems:  Abrams says that customer problems are good because most unhappy customers just walk away. If you do encounter negative comments on an opinion site, do not give into the “trolls” and reply; just let them rant.
