This week has been incredibly exciting for me and I wanted to share it with you…
Suncorp Bank Australia were holding a Helping Hand competition which challenged small business owners to submit their top tip for running a small business in 100 words or less. A judging panel made up of Suncorp Bank CEO – David Foster, Founder of Flying Solo – Robert Gerrish and Quest Newspapers Events Manager – Simone-Lee Givney, decided that my tip was the winning tip.
For me the best part about this award is that the judges, all highly-respected business professionals, agree with me that having procedures in place is an essential part of business success.
This win has enhanced my passion to help small business owners with their systems and processes and confirms to me I’m on the right track by doing so.
So if you are still umming and ahhing about getting procedures in your business and either enhancing them, recording them, upgrading them or even just starting them – then get started today, it will be easier than you think.
And if you are curious about my winning entry – here it is:
My most important business tip is to start documenting systems and procedures in your business. Having procedures in your business allows you to have more time, allows you to manage your staff more effectively and allows you to have a holiday from your business and still make money during that time.
Procedures are the tasks you conduct every day in your business without thinking about them. To get a great procedures manual all you need to do is identify them, record them and review them to make sure they are the most efficient they can be.
