Dealing with Time Constraints in Computer Consulting

If you’re already working 60, 70, or 80 hours each week, you may be wondering how you’ll ever be able to find long-term B2B clients. You may be asking, “Just where is this extra time supposed to come from?” Well, let’s talk a little about that.

First of all, you need to evaluate where you are spending most of your time. If you can cut down on the time spent on some of those activities by automating them, then you should go ahead and take that step.

Delegate, Delegate, Delegate

Second, you need to learn to delegate. I’m sure you want to do everything yourself, but at some point, you have to start spending your time on building your business rather than simply running it.

If you are spending your time putting in motherboards and power supplies, have someone else on your staff take care of those needs. If you’re dealing with retail traffic in a retail store, you can have someone take over that responsibility at least one day a week. Use the staff you already have most effectively by relying on them to do their jobs and take on new responsibilities.

Build Your Business

With the extra time you’ll gain, focus on business building activities. You can go to networking events, make plans, create marketing campaigns, and make the all-important follow-up calls.
