Staying positive in uncertain times takes planning and organisation.

A business is a dynamic entity. It survives cold winters, droughts and blistering political heat, but keeps growing, keeps expanding. It is widely held that the private sector is the engine room of a nation. If it fails, nothing else will work. In planning for a prosperous future, it is important to keep this in mind for a big-picture perspective and to focus on what really matters.

Businesses of all sizes have contributed positively to the marketplace since our readmission into the international community. Currently, South African economic growth is at 1, 7%; global economic growth at 3, 7%; and African economic growth at 5, 6%. If you were to ask the average South African how they perceive the future of our country, you’re more likely to get a negative response and very low expectations for what the country can achieve, and yet, the economy keeps growing – slowly but surely. Business people like you and I, ultimately determine how and when growth and recession occurs. Numbers beat sentiment, and they give us an encouraging speck of hope during troubling times. 

While recognising that we are in fact growing at half of Africa’s rate, and that pushing growth happens only with undivided focus on your company’s sole objectives, the idea of getting virtual assistance for day-to-day activities and management starts to make undeniable business sense. A growing company maintains a busy environment, and administrative assistance is a bare necessity. 

Forecasting the future is based on a process of comparing data compiled from previous years and finding patterns and repetition of trends in order to have an idea of what to expect in the prevailing climate. In other words, planning for future growth and/or recessions comprises multitudes of data analysis and administrative tasks for which many companies typically invest a small fortune in temporary staff to help manage this process. A growing alternative trend is the employment of efficient virtual assistant services. Let AdminAssist save you time and money while you plan ahead for the future.

Here are a few ideas for staying positive during times of economic unrest:

  1. Keep your eyes on the money – Money still makes the world go round, and during each economic storm, money still changes hands; currency still moves from one reserve to another. This phenomenon means there are business possibilities everywhere, and a prudent organisation will know precisely where opportunity lies. 
  2. Keep your eyes on the stats – We live in a region of the world that is predicted to experience a high growth rate between the years 2017 and 2030, so all is not doom and gloom, but in fact, the opposite is true. 
  3. Keep your eyes off politics – Politics in business and economy will always persist, but getting side-tracked by politics could be detrimental to any undertaking. While governments have their role to play, business and commerce remain the lifeline of any country. Losing your focus could have endless repercussions. 
  4. Make sound investments – The only way to know for sure what to invest in, means returning to the numbers again. Stats often tell a story quite different to what we see and hear in the media. Only through measurable statistics will we be able to judge which commodities, assets, schemes or services are worth putting money into. 
  5. Take pressure off yourself – This might mean procuring auxiliary services in order to take pressure off management and staff while remaining efficiently functional and productive. Let AdminAssist take care of the daily grind so you can focus on your priorities for business growth.
