Over the past few years, Georgia has been rapidly growing and booming with small businesses. Georgia has become a hub for innovation and creative ideas, a place where entrepreneurs can come to act on their aspirations. Atlanta, GA is the named the 7th top city in the United States to start a small business in. Most of Georgia’s revenue comes from small businesses. So what are the challenges for small business ? Staying in operation, funding, keeping a consistent cash flow. These are just to name a few. Many consultants, such as myself, have seen over the years, how businesses begin and in the next 6 months or few years, close. So what do you we do to decrease the chances of that happening? First, lets educate our small business owners and inspired entrepreneurs.

You are all over the place, disorganized. You just want to get customers and work, this is the most cases for entrepreneurs and executives. You worry about the financing and operating activities, monetary, of the business, but not the actual operations of the business. You need to figure out how to provide new services to your customers,so you make up a team and leave them without direction to focus on attracting your customers, big mistake. When you finally check on your departments performance, you are not understanding the lag in time it takes to complete a task, yet you are too busy to address the issue. So what are the result now?
- Key tasks are missed which probably could have helped gain a client or attain the revenue
- Other tasks are yet to performed because the first was yet to be completed because of no guidance
- The team you created are left in the wind without direction, scope, idea, and budget so your are over your limits (spending) and the project is not executed properly
Oh I can go on and on to the many problems that can happen without your insight and input as the leader. Processes and systems are beneficial to any business, small or large, because it helps solves many problems and enables an efficient workflow. As the Key Executive, you are the leader. Your team are looking for your guidance and vision of the company. When you are absent, many things can go wrong.
Standard Operating Procedures, Processes, and systems are implement under the company’s vision. These plans are put in place to give the company a sense of direction and how to proceed with work. If you implement a process in each department, tasks will be completed on time and new tasks can be performed. If you define the scope of the project with your team, take time to listen to all input, and develop a plan of action, from it; your team can then hit the floor executing the project.
Now with all this being said, this really means as the leader, lead, motivate, guide and you can go the rest of the day completing your very own tasks, because you have implemented processes and a plan of action!

There are several advantages for outsourcing back office office work to firms or individuals, especially for small businesses, startups, busy offices, traveling professionals, and entrepreneurs. These perks are:
- Avoidance of payroll and its taxes
- Paying for hourly rates that is not affordable
- Paying for services when needed, and not someone “riding” the clock
- Having someone available to you all the time when need, someone you can depend on even after “normal business hours”
Oh the list can go on and on! Here’s the thing, there are several virtual assistant companies out there, who helps with email handling, scheduling appointment, social media, booking travel arrangements, etc. What about the heavy duty work? The work that executives do that they need assistance with? For instance:
- Review of important documentations
- Preparing Presentations for their meetings
- Preparing business documents (reports, agendas, minutes, memos, policies)
- Help with human resources functions
- Help with business operations
- Project management services
- Assistance with special projects
- Financial management of the business
These are the services we, Peavy and Associates, considers to complex upper management administrative duties. From the operations to the financial aspect of the business, you may need help with because either you or your department is overwhelmed with work already, or maybe working on a special project to meet deadlines. The daily activities began to pile up and become unintended, this is why back office support is needed.
