As a small business owner time management is a must. The majority of business owners are working more than 50 hours weekly. The Alternative Board’s latest Business Pulse Survey found that small business owner’s on average spend 68% of their time working “in” their business—–putting out fires, and performing day-to-day tasks, and only 32% of their time working “on” their business—long term goals and marketing . So what is the problem? Distractions. The two main culprits are emails and administrative tasks. To wisely manage your time delegate duties and read emails ONCE and respond immediately.
