Want to Grow Your Business? Get Organized!
A big advantage of becoming a Youngevity Independent Marketing Director is the ease with which you can establish your own business. Where else can you start earning extra income for as little as a $10 initial enrollment fee? As your business gets off the ground and your customer orders increase, it’s easy to let mundane tasks like filing and organization go unattended.
In fact, according to a survey of 1,006 small and medium size businesses conducted by Office Depot1, filing and organization are the top business tasks that small business owners least look forward to, as 27 percent loath putting their office in order. In addition, 21 percent see “organizing my office” as the top issue that hinders their ability to focus on business growth. As the top “pain point”, organization ranks higher than saving money and acquiring new business.
When asked what would most help bring order to their offices, small business owners said they needed more time (57 percent), more tools (39 percent), and the help of an organization expert (14 percent). The items respondents would like to keep more organized or up-to-date are their desks (28 percent), desktops (24 percent), and file cabinets (23 percent).
Although they don’t feel adept at organization, the majority of respondents said they tidy their desks either daily (27 percent) or weekly (34 percent). Only nine percent admit to cleaning their desks a couple of times a year, and one percent never organize their offices.
If you can relate to these numbers, stay tuned for next week’s newsletter when we focus on tips for staying organized!
