My son in Alabama is beginning to understand that starting up and running your own business is full of pesky little chores that take up a lot of your time and need to be handled in a timely manner, such as balancing the different business bank accounts so your employee’s checks don’t bounce and keeping a paper trail of disciplinary actions with a problem employee so the Department of Labor doesn’t get on your back.
I told him about a nice software package called “Manager Assistant” that can help him get better organized and stay on top of those HR and manager details. I like the feature that let’s you schedule and manage employee reviews because I am a firm believer of constant feedback and working with employees as a team, with common goals and measurable progress. But this program has many different modules to help you with many different kinds of management tasks.
It is about time we started entertaining the thought of advertising online. I have offered to help as much as I can with the limited knowledge of online advertising. I really like what CozyWinters is a great option that I will talk to him about in person. I still prefer eye contact when I have a conversation!
My goodness, my son has a lot to learn! But glad I’m here to help and glad to do it. I have no doubt he’ll end up being a great boss and make his business a great success.
