Answering the Call of Back-to-School Time Management
Schedules are busy enough during the three months of summer, but September brings with it a whole new level of frantic time management for parents who are also trying to run businesses.
Kids’ extra-curricular schedules can go into overdrive in the fall, regardless of their age. Getting them to and from school, practices, clubs, daycare, babysitters – not to mention making sure they’re being fed, bathed, and doing their homework is a full-time job on top of your other full-time job of running a small business.
It’s OK to admit it can feel overwhelming at times. Thirty-five percent of parents report that managing transportation to and from events stresses them out more than filing taxes. Being free to make and field calls from customers, work crews and suppliers in the middle of all this back-to-school mayhem is not easy. Plus, sometimes you just want to enjoy your kid’s event without being tied to your cell phone.
Although we can’t take Susie or Johnny to soccer practice or the fourth-grade band recital, The Answer Network can help free up some of your time by making sure your business calls are handled efficiently and professionally.
We do more than simply answer your company’s phone calls. We can provide virtual office assistant services – scheduling appointments, informing you of important calls – all while enabling you to juggle the commitments that come with being a parent running a business.
