Best Agent Business
Providing part-time virtual assistants to top real estate agents.

In the last post we talked about the importance of delegating tasks. There was no specific mention of what to delegate, though. Not all tasks should be delegated. You already know that you should work on the important tasks, the real money making tasks. Another thing you have to keep in your own hands is the financials of your business. Never, ever delegate the financial controls of your business.

You can not trust anyone when it comes to money. Too many business owners have thought they could trust their staff and ended up being ripped off for large amounts of money. Reclaiming stolen funds is difficult if not impossible, so do not even risk it.

The financial controls of your business is a very important task. Not only do you need to handle them to keep from having problems with theft, but part of being a business owner is understanding how your business is doing financially. If you do not handle the financials then you will not see where changes need to be made or where problems are starting to occur.

The financial aspect of your business needs your direct attention. You can get assistance with it from a professional, but you should always be right in there, learning and watching what is going on.


Do you feel like you do everything in your business? Are you always looking for more hours in the day? If you feel like you are always running behind and accomplishing nothing then you are never going to be able to take your business to the next level. Get to the next level by mastering delegation.

Delegation is the process of assigning tasks to others within or outside of your business. If you do not have a large staff, but you have a lot of work to be done you can always hire outside help.

It can be a bit intimidating to hand off work to others, but it is essential to growing a business. You can not do everything and the minute you accept that you can begin to delegate.

You should be focused on doing the work that is worth the most money. Instead of spending an hour on a task that is worth $20, you should focus your attention on tasks that pay $100 an hour. Delegate those low paying tasks to others.

Soon you will begin to see how proper delegation helps your business and helps you. You are the key person in your business and so you need to focus your efforts on what will help your business grow and succeed. Delegate everything else. If you want to get your business to the next level do it through delegation.
