Starting Up A Business - Get Help With Administration and Telephone Calls

It may sound an odd thing to say but sometimes when you are starting out in business you can find yourself needing some help, but find yourself too busy to actually go out and get any.

So when you first start up your own business then what options are there when it comes to getting some help with administration and telephone calls?

Well you hire a temp, but then you have no continuity of service guaranteed e.g. they could get a permanent job next week, leaving you to waste time training someone else. Also you will pay a premium wage rate for hiring a temp.

Or you could take on someone on a permanent basis but then this is both costly and will result in you having to initially handle even more administration.

In either of the above cases you then have the issue of where are they going to work? You are going to need to rent some office space, but how much are you going to need and how long for? Take on too little and you may have to find larger premises yet still be leasing the current ones,but take on too much office space and you can be paying for dead space you are not using.
