3 Signs it's the right time for you to hire an intern / assistant


Your start-up is on a tight budget. There’s a growing list of things to be accomplished. But you only have so many hours in a day. Has the thought of hiring an intern or assistant ever occurred to you? No matter what size your business; hiring an assistant could be of great benefit to you. We’ve listed the 3 signs that indicate it’s the right time for you and your business to get hiring.

1.    You haven’t got enough time to do everything yourself

There aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything you need to do. Sounds familiar? Being a small business owner can keep you incredibly busy. If you feel like you haven’t got enough time to do all the small tasks that need doing, an addition to your team could be the perfect asset to your business. They could ultimately take the pressure off of you and make the business more efficient.


2.    You’re ready to grow

If you believe your business to be ready to grow, it could be a sign it’s the right time for you to hire an assistant. A different and fresh perspective could mean the difference between growth and decline, and a fresh face could insert optimism and a different insight into your business. So, get hiring if you’re looking to expand and take your business to the next level.


3.    You’re stuck in a rut

As a small business owner, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut with limited people to bounce ideas off. An assistant sees everything with fresh eyes, and hiring an intern could increase your productivity. Teaching your intern will make you think about your business and why you do what you do. This could, in turn, make you improve some of your approaches to your business.
