It is easy to get overwhelmed running a business. There is always too much to do. Be honest about your strengths and weaknesses. Stick to what you do best and delegate what you do worst. There are very inexpensive resources that make it possible to delegate on even the tightest budget. ODesk is a great place to find expert help. Remember, you are not saving money if you sink large chunks of time into tasks you are not likely to master.
That being said, you MUST stay involved in your book keeping and understand the numbers.
With a little research you can find city, county, state and federal agencies that offer free support to small businesses. For instance, the SBA SCORE program provides free mentors.
Peer support groups and advisors are amazing resources. Too many entrepreneurs spend their time re-inventing the wheel. Business issues are similar regardless of the industry. Any problem you have in your business has already been solved 1,000 times. People like to help, all you have to do is ask.
You have worked your way through all 10 Steps. I hope you agree with me when I say,
“You can do it!”
Good luck and let me know how your jewelry journey progresses.
