While everyone is attending holiday parties, shopping and enjoying family, we work. So, who celebrates the holidays when you're a business owner? Finding the time to put work away can be hard when you're self employed. But, its necessary to find ways to balance work and prioritizing personal health (mental included) during all seasons of the year. Particularly, during the winter months we start to experience burnout or the "blues" as some call it.
Hi, I'm your new partner! What does that mean for you? You're no longer the only person on your team to champion your cause, your business. You have help...me. So, your social media, HR, operations and administrative department just doubled by adding me to your team. What does this mean for me? You've likely hired (or will after spending time here on the PaxRat site) me to help with things like process improvement, content creation, emailing, HR staffing advice, research or any other number of things. Over the course of my career I've done all of the above and more for much larger companies and clients. Now, I'm bringing my expertise to you, the small business. A concierge? What's that? Think about the concierge at your local hotel. Their job is to organize and handle the smallest details to ensure your stay is comfortable. So, my job is to ensure that your company's needs are addressed and things move as seamlessly as possible. As with most small businesses, the owner/manager is left handling everything from branding to product development and creation. While that method appears to be the easiest and most affordable, there is low to no ROI on the investment it takes to be all things. It's more beneficial to focus on your product/service and allow me to handle the other moving parts in your business. And whether you need help here and there or every week, I'm your new partner and I will work with you to further your own vision. The biggest and most urgent question most small businesses have by now are "can I afford this". Yes. We have solutions for every budget and work across the US, remotely. There are cost comparisons to hiring a full time employee vs hiring The PaxRat Concierge. I think you'll be please to see that it's much more affordable to hire our service.
I'll be here every Wednesday with a new post on topics across business functions and interests. Make sure you sign up to have updates sent to you each week. I look forward to partnering with you and Welcome to The PaxRat Concierge.
