If you’ve been following along with my email delegation goal this month, I’m happy to report that 3 weeks in- Georgia and I have established a rhythm! I'm feeling much more in control of my email and my open tasks, my management team has shifted nicely into Asana and we are keeping on top of stuff!
Let’s talk numbers. 6,588: That's the number of unread emails sitting in my inbox this morning. 16: Hours I’ve spent this week “managing my email.” 120: That's the number of emails that I've got flagged in my email as open, unresolved tasks that need my attention and response.
Emily Morgan Completes the 10,000 Small Businesses-Greater Philadelphia Program
PHILADELPHIA, April 29, 2014
The business owners have spent 12 weeks - roughly 100 class hours - at the Main Campus of Community College of Philadelphia actively engaged in an entrepreneurial business curriculum designed by Babson College and delivered by the community college faculty. The curriculum covered all elements of running one’s business, from money and metrics to marketing and sales. The program also included one-on-one business advising, financial statement workshops and advice from top law firms and Goldman Sachs professionals.
Applications for 10,000 Small Businesses are accepted on a rolling basis at Community College of Philadelphia, with June 9, 2014 as the deadline to apply for the next cohort. The program is open to business owners from across the Greater Philadelphia region. Applications may be downloaded at www.ccp.edu/10KSB.
At Delegate, we believe that there are many layers to effective delegation; some of which are purely emotional. In our last post we reviewed some delegation strategies that can help you begin to master the first steps of “what to hand off”. This week, we are exploring this “mindset” layer, and why it’s so particularly hard for entreps to navigate while building their business. We’ll also review some strategies you can use to reframe and conquer these thoughts.
