A Note From Mila

 

Hi,

 

I know Mondays are usually rushed and involve mountains of weekend emails and playing catch up with work, so I’ll get right to the point! I’m not sure if you know, but Kelly McCausey of Wahm Talk Radio is also the publisher of The WC mini mag. The WC is a print magazine full of information; tips and advice for work at home moms.

I love it not only because it has great info and I get to stay in touch with the work at home mom community (I don’t like to feel left out!), but also because it’s a real print magazine. I read tons of e-books and courses online, but for me there’s nothing like curling up on a comfy chair and reading a real physical book or magazine. I’m also always on the go, taking the kids here or there and having interesting reading material makes sitting through piano lessons a whole lot easier ;-)

So here’s the deal, Kelly has revamped The WC and it’s now bigger and better than ever. First of all, we’ll now be getting monthly mailings again instead of quarterly (Yay), and each issue also includes an educational audio CD.

Kelly has also gone one step further and put together a generous and exclusive offer just for Internet Based Moms subscribers. She’s giving you 15% off the standard subscription price for as long as you remain a subscriber. That’s a pretty nice deal that’s available until the end of this month. To grab your discount, all you have to do is go to: http://www.internetbasedmoms.com/m/wc.html and enter this special coupon code when you sign up – 36197.

It’s important that you enter the code to get your discount, and don’t leave it for later… You know how easily life just seems to get in the way or how a million other things will come up, so grab your 15% savings now and don’t miss out. Go to: http://www.internetbasedmoms.com/m/wc.html and enter this special coupon code when you sign up – 36197.

That’s it from me; scroll down for your featured article and to learn more about what’s happening in the work at home mom community!

 

Wishing you much success,

Mila Sidman, editor Internet Based Moms

Community & Networking

 

As a home business owner, we wear many hats such as mom, wife, CEO and all around gopher. The more we have going on in our lives, the more the need for harmony. The key to harmony is finding a way to balance all of these different roles.

Lately our experts, staff and members have commented on different aspects of juggling their personal and business lives. Find out if what they’re doing can help you in your endeavors.

Alice shares a free guide to help moms get great content without sacrificing precious time. http://experts.internetbasedmoms.com/alice

5 Steps to Successful Outsourcing
By Mila Sidman


Without a doubt, I contribute the success of my business (and any business) to the power of outsourcing. Think about it, as a small business owner, you’re one person, there are only so many hours in a day and that’s just not going to change. It’s easy to get caught in the trap of thinking we can do it all, but in reality trying to do too much can really take the focus of your main priority – building your business.

If you’re already getting help in your business, you know just how important outsourcing is and you probably wonder how you ever managed without it! And if you’re still not outsourcing some of your work load, get ready to discover some easy and fast ways go get started.

Ask for Recommendations
It’s never easy to find the right person to work with, by asking for recommendations you can greatly improve your chances of ending up with reliable helpers. Ask a trusted friend or other business people for recommendations. You still need to ensure the person is a good match for you, but you’ll have a better starting point.

Communicate Clearly
Many problems and issues can be avoided by clear communication. Before jumping in, explain to your potential helper how you work, what the job involves and what is expected of them and you. Finding good helpers is a two-way process and you’ll need to be accountable to them as well. If you take two days to answer your helper’s emails when they have an important question, you really can’t expect them to respond to you in two hours right? It also helps to write down the terms and expectations before starting out. It doesn’t necessarily have to involve a contract but terms should be clearly explained in writing.

Keep Them Busy
It’s hard to find reliable help online (and offline), and it’s definitely a whole lot easier when you offer someone regular work. If you only hire a helper for a few hours here and there, they’ll get booked with other clients and projects. It will be much more difficult for you to find quick help when you’re in a pinch. If at all possible try to hire someone for a set number of hours per week.

Keep Them Happy
If you want to find and hold on to good people, it goes without saying that you treating them respectfully and well is important. That doesn’t mean putting up with unacceptable work or missed deadlines, but it does mean considering your helpers and the work they do for you. If one of them is working really hard and doing a great job, give them a raise or send them a note and let them know how much you appreciate them. It’s not always possible to increase someone’s rate, but doing something nice or simply showing how much you appreciate them can go a long way.

Save Your Instructions
This is a tip I picked up from Alice Seba, when you’re giving someone a project for the first time, take a little extra time and save those instructions in a pdf or word document. It’s unfortunate but things don’t always work out and people move on. If you lose a helper, it will be a whole lot easier to pick up where they left off if you have clear, written instructions for the next person. It will save you loads of time from having to explain the same things again. Plus having written instructions gives your helpers something to refer to instead of having to email you for information.

The road to building a business is never smooth… Getting started with outsourcing is a learning process and it does take a little time to find good people to work with, but once you do find a good match and get help in your business you’ll see positive changes and wonder how you ever managed without it.
