Time is the contractor’s most precious commodity, especially when first starting out. You must find out how to balance between customers, work, training and hiring new subcontractors, and last but not least the paperwork.
All Contractors are faced with administrative paperwork, and while some made excel in this area, others find it daunting and difficult. Regardless of where one stands in the range between competent to failure, most report finding the time and correct techniques to be difficult. Contractors with adversity to administration typically find a minimalist system that can sustain their need, but that system limits their ability for growth, and ends in frustration.
Administration is only one component of the whole picture, and one that is not typically seen by the paying customer. Meaning allotting time for administrative work is often difficult to justify.
What happens if I told you that if use the right system, not only will your administrative time will be reduced, your proficiency will increase. The single adversity to improving and using a new system is the fear of technology, again with claims of “I don’t have time.” While there are some definite advantages to using technology, there are other systems that can be used which are technology free.
The purpose of finding an effective system is a crucial component to your business. I can help evolve what you are using now, improve on the paper work, and help you spend more time doing what you like then fearing the administrative side of the business.
