You Run Your Business. We'll Protect It.

When running a business, don’t be afraid to ask for help

April 19, 2017

As an entrepreneur, you likely find yourself trying to do too much at once. Generally, that’s not good for you or your business. Remember, as painful as it sounds, there’s nothing wrong with asking for a little help from time to time. In fact, asking for help may have far more reaching benefits than the immediate need.

For example, payroll can be a daunting task that consumes hours of your time. Handling it on your own may not be the best approach for your business. Consider the potential pitfalls here: loss of time, regulatory concerns, incorrect payments to employees, etc. Certain tasks require assistance, no matter what you read on the Internet. So if you have a contact who’s a CPA or runs their own business, ask them how they would handle the situation. Maybe there are better approaches to the problem, or software you aren’t aware of that can help.

Additionally, the amount of time you spend trying to find the solution on your own could be better spent growing your customer base, or training employees, or a myriad of other objectives that helps your business grow.

The point is, asking for help may not only solve your immediate need, but it might open your eyes to a new approach you hadn’t considered.
