The Power of Process

Earlier this week, I was meeting with one of our clients about what makes companies unique. Is it that we hire better staff?   Is it that we have so much more clarity around what we do? What we ultimately agreed on, is that what makes us unique and makes our work with clients so successful is our process.

The $5 billion battle for Amazon's new HQ is getting even more heated

Amazon is planning a 50,000 person headquarters and bidding for the site is intensifying. While New York is doubling down on their bid on the estimated $5 billion dollar headquarters both Boston and Los Angeles are facing pushback from local residents who are concerned that overcrowding and an increase in the cost of living could affect them as it has Seattle.

Not to be confused with the team-management app of the same name, Shyft is an iOS-only to-do tool that is all about the work/life balance. It maintains two separate task lists – one for professional items, one for personal – and you can use swipe or 3D Touch gestures to add, edit, complete or defer tasks.

Overcoming Delegation Hesitation

Using an assistant team of any type is generally a cause of anxiety for many, at least at the beginning. Most entrepreneurs recognize the need for a” behind the scenes” team, but are hesitant to use them to their full abilities. After all, you wouldn’t be where you are if you hadn’t put in the hard work and long hours.

It is challenging to then hand over tasks that are out of your viewpoint and trust they are completed to your satisfaction. But that is precisely the goal of delegation! Building the trust takes time and effort on both sides, but a successful relationship cannot exist without it. You don’t have to be a one-man army, effective delegation can increase productivity and stop you from overtaxing yourself.

The Cost of Churn in Small Business

Another summer is now in the books, and wow, what an intense summer it's been for us here at Delegate. My team has been pushed to the max as we’ve navigated some really tricky stuff! Collectively, we showed up and pulled together as a team to help out. I’m proud and grateful for each of my team members! 

As an entrepreneur, finding and retaining talent is one of the most crucial parts of growing your business. Because we have small teams, getting it right equates to growth and getting it wrong leads down a cyclic path of lost energy spent hiring, training and re-training. All of which kills productivity and profitability, costing us time (limited), money (limited) and leading to burnout (boo!).

Teens favoring Snapchat and Instagram over Facebook. 

Research firm eMarketer reports that Facebook is losing appeal among teens and young adults and growth is slowing as those demographic groups switch to using alternative social apps Snapchat and Instagram.  Both Snapchat and Instagram are enjoying double-digit growth in the younger demographic, thought to be partially due to younger users favoring more visual communications platforms.  This is the second consecutive year of decline in usage for Facebook among this demographic group.
