How Can Business Owners Free Up Time With Interns?

Sometimes, it feels like there are not enough hours in the day to get all of your small business tasks completed. Don’t you wish you could just hand some of the things on your to-do list over to someone else? How can do you do it? You can use interns to make your to-do list, your done list.

Being a small business owner and entrepreneur, you are used to making lists of tasks for yourself. Right now, you know what needs to be done, and when it is due. Unfortunately, you can’t just make copies of yourself. What you can do is train interns to do some of these things instead of you. Once you finish training them, you can set standards for their work. And then use these standards to achieve your business goals faster and more efficiently.

There is one thing you must do, before you train your interns. You need to make your to-do list. List all of the tasks you want done for your small business, and the projects that you wish you could do. There will be many things that you know only you can do, and other things you could hand over to someone else. Social networking is a good example of that. You could hand over all of your social networking tasks to an intern. Just doing this will save you valuable time, that you could spend making money for your small business. Deciding which tasks to hand over to your intern are that easy.

Now that you know what tasks you can hand over to an intern, it’s time to decide how to monitor your intern with the tasks. The best way to do this is to set goals for your intern.  For example, you could create a minimum number of hours for your intern to work.  Or it could be as simple as a certain number of tasks completed to suit your business needs.

You don’t have to rely on perfect copies of you to get the job done.  You can do something else just as effective.  Train interns to help you cross the tasks off your to-do list. Wouldn’t you want to get more things done? It’s time to hire interns!
