Freelance Life Before and After Having an AND CO Chief Operator3 min read
When you try to take on too much, your work can suffer. Before you know it, your hair has started to fall out and your doctor is prescribing you a cat to help you deal with the stress. When you’re your own boss, it can be hard to know when and what things you should outsource. Well, we’re here to tell you that it’s OK to delegate!
If you haven’t already, let an AND CO Chief Operator handle those admin tasks for you!
Remember when you spent five months learning how to use Quickbooks and then another five months trying to understand what you just learnt? Well, it only takes five seconds to learn your AND CO Chief Operator’s email address…and even less time to text them with an invoicing request through the My Desk section of the app. Your personal CO can generate those pesky invoices for you, and help track them so you get paid. Easy!
Now you can donate that Quickbooks For Dummies book to charity and spend the next five months focussing on your business!
The Humans Are Coming!
Sick of talking to robots when you call your bank or cable company? AND CO understands the importance of person-to-person contact, especially when it comes to your business. You’ve worked very hard to build a career and the last thing you want is to be stuck talking to a glorified microwave about your invoicing. AND CO Chief Operators are 100% human and here to help! You can email or text your CO and get a response from a real person who understands what it’s like to run a business, to work hard, eat hotdogs and take walks on the beach! Ah, humans!
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
Being your own boss can be exhausting, especially if you’re having to monitor the small things like tracking expenses. If you’ve started avoiding buying useful items for your business just because you don’t have the time to keep track of them, then it’s time you got your own AND CO Chief Operator. Your personal CO will track your expenses for you, so you can get on with the important things, like buying a Newton’s Cradle for your desk!
Can I Claim This Muffin?
Trying to figure out what you can claim on your tax return can be super confusing. Let’s say you meet a possible client for a coffee but don’t end up working together, can you claim the double macchiato you slurped down at Groundwork? Luckily, your CO can answer all of these weird and wonderful questions, taking the suspense out of expenses. So sit back, relax and order another muffin.
Tracking projects is a full-time job. It’s great to be busy, especially when you do what you love, but trying to juggle everything on your own might mean some projects get forgotten. Before you know it, you’ve become a stressed-out version of Don Draper sipping cognac at 2pm. When you’re stretched too thin, you can’t give each project the attention it needs and it’s not fair to the project, your client, or you. Don’t panic, your AND CO Chief Operator can help you track each project and help you stay on task and on time. No more juggling (except real juggling, everyone likes real juggling).
