As an entrepreneur you either have time or have money, but usually not both. Later on as your business grows you’ll trade time for money by allowing others to do things they are better at than you are to free you up to do what you do best. But in the beginning if you don’t have the money then you have to do things yourself. But how can you save yourself time and money? Let’s take a look.
Buy Templates. You can take a look at Brad Gosse’s magazine templates and purchase them and make the adjustments you need and then create the documents. He has some great ideas and flair for this thing called marketing. Getting his templates will save you time, especially as low the price is for them.
Examples. First, in creating marketing materials such as a newsletter for your clients or customers you can use Apple’s iWork to create some good looking documents. However, sometimes you need some fresh ideas.
But if you’re low on the ol’ mulla, then do what I do on occasion. I look at what Brad or any other magazine have done and try and recreate it the best I can and then add some of my own flair in it. It might take longer to do it, but I’ll learn how it’s done and get ideas for later. If you are a true entrepreneur at first you can’t help by keeping your costs low and get ideas from others. Later on as you begin to make money you’ll save yourself time by hiring others to save you and your time.
- Get idea from others to keep your costs down
- Hire others when you have the money so you can concentrate on your business
