Top three reasons to hire an expert

Cathy Yeomans, Imagine Public Relations, White Rock, BC, imaginepr@shaw.ca

When we start our businesses, we often do everything ourselves. However, we soon find we don’t have the expertise or skill set to handle it all. Hiring others can help, and here are three reasons why:

  1. Our to-do list gets too long. Virtual assistants can help you stay on top of your orders (clients), keep you organized and allow you time to focus on growing your business.
  2. Experts are experts for a reason. Although you may know how to do your taxes, you may not know what you can write off and what you can’t. What about CPP payments or HST? A small business accountant can answer these questions and help you keep more money in your pocket.
  3. Revenue Canada is offering a hiring credit for small businesses. This one-time credit is intended to stimulate new employment and support small businesses. For more information, click here.

So why not hire an expert for the job that you’re not an expert in. Isn’t that why they hire you?
