I fired my assistant

I think I’m beginning to understand myself better. It’s not that I am incapable of having someone work for me, it was more than that. It was the fact that I didn’t want someone else working on my things unless they absolutely felt as passionate about it as I am. My assistant had many flaws, and as an employer, you might think that I fired him because of those flaws. Yes, I did.

He wasn’t qualified for the job. When I would ask him to accomplish a task, I felt that he dragged things out. He spent a long time making a banner that didn’t look good. And if I wanted my assistant to research something for me, he would spend just as much time surfing the web rather than actually doing the work. Sure, I could have waited for him to finish his work or encouraged him to do it faster, but that wouldn’t have worked either.

I’m just not cut out to have someone work for me. It’s the constant need to check on their work to make sure that they’re doing it right. I hated that. He had no vision of how things “could” be. And in turn, I slowly ran out of inspiration too. So guess what? I am working all by myself now and I love it. I couldn’t be happier, and as I embark on this journey into the blog world by myself, I am so excited. I can’t wait to see what I think of or choose to write about.

I’ll keep you posted!

How to Manage Your Website

1

If you’re anything like me, you’re horrible at managing your time. Even though I own two businesses, I’m not perfect. I have to spend hours working on my tasks and that takes a lot of my energy. I often feel like I am at a lost for how to manage my time. When I look at my website, I often feel like I am not doing well enough to manage it. It’s true, we will all feel this way at least once, but you have to pull through. I’m going to give my best five tips to how to manage your website effectively:

1. Practice

What do I mean by practice? I mean that you have to work on your website A LOT. You have to put in many hours day and night. It takes practice to get good at something. If you are not comfortable with all of the settings and programs, then you need more practicing.

2. Hire an assistant

I’ve said this many times before. If you don’t have an assistant helping you, I’m sorry but you’re not working effectively. You cannot do everything. Hire someone to help you. If I could, I would hire two assistants to get double the work done.

3. Plan out your blog posts in advance

I think of the blogs posts weeks in advance, and then I have my assistant create the banners and ads to go with it. This saves me a lot of time that I would have wasted thinking of new content. I also always have a backup if I need something to write about right away.

4. Set your expectations day by day

Set four hours in the day to work on your content. You have to work really hard within those four hours. If you’re not putting the work in for that day, you are easily going to lose track of your to-do list.

5. Set up days that you want to work and make it your routine

Managing your website takes time and if you don’t make time to do it, then you are going to be at a huge loss. Try to post content frequently. When you have a great schedule, everything else will seem so easy. Good luck πŸ™‚
