As a small business owner you are doing a lot. From making and sourcing products to taking pictures and making reels. Not to forget managing your instagram page, replying to DMs and engaging with your customers.
And it doesn't end there, you are the one packaging and shipping orders. Coordinating with customers and the courier agency when deliveries don't happen in time.
But you don't complain. Small businesses are usually run by one person and all this is a part of the job. You know you signed up for this when you started.
Except there is one problem. Handling operations is not where growth comes from — Growth comes from putting your brand's message out there through content.
Whether you are fulfilling your orders manually over DMs or have a website, you know that you have to post content and market your business. This conundrum might help explain why small business owners are so overworked all the time.
