Shed Light on Blind Spots and Jump-Start Your Business 2019
At the back of your retina lies a circular area that is not sensitive to light and void of vision. That is your blind spot. However, far from being an ocular terminology only, blind spots also take a toll in many other aspects of your life, from health and family to personal growth and business development. They are the hidden obstacles that bar you from venturing further, the invisible forces that pull you back from more success and the imperceptible factors that could actually make all the differences.
Fortunately, unlike the permanent optic disc in each eye, blind spots in your life and business are susceptible to improvement. And what is the better time to shed light on those blind spots, spring clean your life and make a leap for your business than the start of a whole new, promising 2019?
For life, it is the old story of resolution and determination
Identifying blind spots for yourself is not difficult at all. We clearly understand what prevent us from a better life (e.g. unhealthy lifestyles, social norms, attitudes etc.) and we even know how to make improvements. Going to the gym more often, spending time with family during weekends, applying healthy diet, stepping out of the comfort zone to experience the world……the list keeps going on and on.
In fact, you have already turned them into an annual list. We all have. Yes, we are talking about the good old new year’s resolution which is normally applicable during the first week of January. That pretty much leaves the equation to your perseverance and courage to follow the resolutions, wipe out those blind spots and aim for a better life in 2019.
For business, it is another story
A totally different story, especially if you are the business owner or C-level executive. Blind spots in business are hard to perceive and solve not because they are out of your range of vision, but because they actually happen right in front of your eyes. They happen so normally and casually that you do not expect them as hurdles for further business development. For example, the staff come to the office and complete all paperwork he or she is supposed to do; or the fact that your business is in operation from 9 to 5, every weekday; or your company is in maximum capacity.
However, when you sit down with the Board to review practices in 2018 and outline the roadmap for 2019, these blind spots are worth your second thoughts. Is it optimal and compulsory to leave specialists with paperwork while they could be out there taking care of your clients, handling revenue-generating tasks? What would happen if your business can go beyond 9 to 5 without sacrificing huge overtime? Is there any solution to level up your business’ maximum productivity with minimum extra costs?
Discussing, reviewing and resolving such blind spots (together with a lot more questions depending on your demand) are the decisive move that ensure your business not simply get ready, but jump-start to an awesome 2019. In fact, ASW Global does have a solution that could leverage and innovate your business operation to a whole new level. That is offshoring!
Offshoring – the next chapter in your success story in 2019
Not to be confused with outsourcing, offshoring is the practice in which you build an extended team in another country to take advantage of global talent pool, labour arbitrage and time zone. The offshore team is a part of your business and organisational culture; therefore, you have full control over the offshore staff. Offshoring (when done right) is the key strategy which helps you save time as well as money to dedicate for other customer acquisition activities (a.k.a a big boost to the business development).
Remember the specialist with paperwork? Now, the offshore team can handle all the back-office task so your onshore specialists are confident to find more clients. The 9-to-5 working loop? Done! Expand your market share but do not want to double your onshore headcount? Hiring offshore staff are much more cost-efficient.
Those aren’t the only benefits. Every business has its own needs and can benefit from offshoring in different ways. ASW Global has helped many businesses and we can do the same for you. We can walk you through the offshoring process so that your 2019 is going to be a big successful year. Leaving all the blind spots behind, it’s time to achieve new goals awaiting your business in the road ahead.
