Small Business and Start-Up Efficiency

In todays networked world it is possible to "grow" your business virtually and increase your efficiency at the same time - rather than "grow" your fixed cost structure and decrease efficiency.Her I just want to talk about which steps one might take to a more efficient small business: look at you business critically and understand what your core business isfocus on your core business and objectives, do not waste time with non-core activities - outsource thosere-evaluate work processes, remove non-value-add activities, work out how to do thatre-evaluate your outsourced activities, are you getting a professional and efficient servicecheck your clients perception of your small business, ask for feedbackThe drive for efficiency is an continuous effort in every business, not only small and start-up businesses, like SOHO-, SME, SMB-, Micro-, Lifestyle-, Home-, DIY-, Hobby-, Boomer-, Professional-, Personal businesses. It is this kind of thinking that will determine success or failure of your small business venture.How efficient is your business - to think about that is a much more fascinating way to spend some "free and quiet time", than watching television - it's more exciting and rewarding too.

Virtual Small Business and Business Start-Up Teams

I have been writing about virtual assistants and virtual workers for quite some time, explaining the benefits of outsourcing to virtual assistants and workers for small business and start-up business, like SOHO-, SME, SMB-, Micro-, Lifestyle-, Home-, DIY-, Hobby-, Boomer-, Professional-, Personal businesses.But I never really wrote something about what it means to have a virtual small business team, which is part of WinWeb's Small Business Infrastructure approach - so here it goes, a virtual small business team is: a collection of people working together in different locations, countries and time-zonesa "network" of people working together using advanced online technologysome teams my be project specific and/or limited in duration(time)Not always do people only work virtually together, some times the meet - even if it is only socially.... You should think about these issues in the planning phase of your business start-up.Have you thought through all the possibilities for your small business outsourcing and bootstrapping or how much more green and eco-friendly your small business or start-up would be?
