Sitting near the beach in sunny Newport, RI, one avoids all thought of business (or one should, shouldn't they?) - but it makes me think of sales, as I'm looking at sails.
I'm thinking of how we're sold the dream of being a business owner, working our own schedule, and having time and money to pursue vacation spots like the one I'm in.
I don't know about you, but as a biz owner, money can be abundant but not always time - yes?
It causes one to think about outsourcing - finding ways to re-engineer business to offer more opportunities like this one - enjoying sun and beach - boats and mansions.
How can you re-engineer your environment to pull your forward in your business? For me it is about outsourcing lower-level, more menial tasks - creating an easy to update website (in progress), and in focusing on higher value tasks and focus on client projects.
