Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur or run a business for a while, it’s never too late to update the contacts on your phone. Business owners often tend to be busy and short on time. Meaning when an occasion calls for professional help, spending time to source someone to support you is challenging.
To prevent you from being stuck in a scenario, without a much-needed contact. Why not update your address book today?
Below are some of the most critical connections a business owner needs. Perhaps not today, or tomorrow, but eventually, a time shall arise. And you’ll be glad you have each and every one of them on speed dial when you need them.
A burst water pipe or gutter clogs oozing gunk on to your business’s forecourt is never, for instance, instantly spells disaster and panic. Issues such as these always strike when you least expect it. And if they aren’t rectified quickly, they can cause an extensive range of damage to your business premises. Save yourself the time and worry in the future, stressing to find a plumber who can quickly fix the problem. And instead, find and create a reliable contact today. Preferably a plumbing company that caters to commercial businesses, and offers emergency services.
You’ll likely meet obstacles in business that you can’t overcome alone. Whether you feel overwhelmed or have no experience in a particular area, it’s essential to ask for help and support. This is why it would benefit you to have a mentor in your phone book to call and speak to when you feel out of your depth.
Mentors are people who have extensive experience in business and may be able to offer solutions. Such as assisting you with scaling your business or advising you how to overcome stress and anxiety caused by work.
You need access to your employees’ contact details for a multitude of reasons. For example, if you’re sick and can’t make it into work one day, you shall need to delegate tasks to the rest of the team and choose your second in command to take over for that day.
If you don’t have their details already, ask HR or your employees directly to give their details to you just in case.
Businesses can, from time to time, come up against specific legal challenges. Ones of which require you to attain advice.
Sourcing an excellent lawyer who can help guide you through difficult situations at work, whether concerning employment law or trading standards, is essential.
Having the above contacts in your mobile is you preparing for some of the worst-case scenarios that might occur in advance.
And so, whether you can’t make it into work and need to choose someone to fill your shoes for a day or two. Or if you need legal advice over a supplier that has mis-sold you a product. With contacts at the ready, you’ll avoid spending time scrambling to find the right person to help you.
