Work too many hours

1. Working too many hours

It’s easy to fall into the trap of working for too many hours in your business. But it’s a recipe for burning yourself out physically, mentally, or both.

You can actually achieve more by working less hours if you use your time effectively. For example, by outsourcing, delegating or automating as many of your routine business tasks as possible (like bookkeeping).

Juggle your business finances

2. Juggling your business finances

Many small business owners struggle to manage their cash flow. In fact, cash flow issues are the leading cause of small business failure.

But you can stay on top of your business finances and nip any potential issues in the bud by using automated accounting software like Xero.

Manage Staff

3. Managing your staff effectively

If you have staff in your small business, it’s crucial to both motivate and manage them effectively to help you succeed.

You can do that by ensuring that your staff:

· know the goals you want to achieve and the standards that you expect from them,

· are paid on time, every time, and

· are treated with respect.
