Celebrating Small Business Month in October!
October provides an opportunity for us to celebrate Small Business Month in Ontario.
It’s a time to honour and acknowledge the hard work, dedication and perseverance that small business owners pour into their businesses, often 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The small business owner wears many hats as part of helping to grow their business and that can be both exhilarating, and a drain on your physical, mental and emotional health.
A Concierge can help.
Our small business is focussed on helping your small business succeed.
How do we do it? By helping you with the day to day tasks that you don’t necessarily have the time for but that DO need to get done in a timely way.
Ask any small business owner how they are doing and chances are you’ll get a similar reply. They are either “busy,” or in rare moments of downtime, they are trying to “catch up.” When business is good, often you’re too busy to get to the daily tasks of things like invoicing, reconciliation or other paperwork done. In those quiet times however, you are still busy, catching up on the paperwork that didn’t get done when you were busy! It’s a never-ending cycle.
Chances are, as a small business owner, you are the one placing orders for stock, stocking the shelves, or as a service provider, helping other people with their bookkeeping, plumbing, legal matters or any of the other 1000’s of services small business owners provide.
When do you get time for you? More than likely, it doesn’t happen very often!
Here are just a few ways a service like thE Concierge can help
whether that’s at home or at work:
Prepare, print and post mailings, flyers, event invitations or special mail out promotions.
Source, shop and wrap employee recognition gifts.
Research and help to source/establish employee benefits plans and/or other initiatives to recognize your employee’s contribution to your success.
Source, purchase and restock office supplies, even coffee for your overworked coffee maker! This might also include things like a “Costco” run – saving you both TIME and MONEY.
Event planning: including company parties, meetings and special or seasonal events and/or sales meetings and conferences.
Acting as a “Personal Admin” for your business; making the calls you don’t have time for, waiting on hold or at your place of business for hydro, gas or telephone services that need repairs or upgrades, conducting banking, order restocking and more.
As a special service, thE Concierge will also come in and help organize your files, to help you manage your business better as you grow!
As we said earlier, our team is dedicated to your success.
We exist because we know busy people often have more tasks than time.
We help to establish balance, whether that’s in your personal life or professional life – or both!
We also provide at home services such as:
Grocery shopping, gift purchases, running errands.
Declutter of all areas of the home allowing each space to function optimally.
Home care (watering plants, checking in while you are away and home “sitting” which includes waiting for service persons to attend your property so you don’t have to.
Providing other services you don’t have time for like lining up at the Service Ontario to change your paperwork, buying home and office supplies, acting as a delivery service and more.
In short, we take away the stress and worry of the every day,
allowing you to focus on growing your business.
That’s how our small business will support your small business so that together, we can ALL celebrate Small Business Month in October!
