Here are a few things you could be doing if we did your fulfillment:
It’s far too easy to let work pile up as more and more comes in. When you spend half of your day dealing with order fulfillment, there’s not nearly enough time for everything else that you need to do. You end up working late, trying to get on top of the pile, but it just gets bigger and bigger. The day your new 3PL takes over, spend that day blissfully hitting the reset button on your office and your duty roster.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with having a taco at your desk while you do the weekly accounting, but it’s also not awful to get out once in a while and see the sights. Hey, you could even plan a business lunch with clients, contacts or your staff to change things up a bit.
Those early days of your company were filled with personal touches because there weren’t that many people who needed attention. Lately, you barely had time to email them a boilerplate advertisement. Do what you did to earn that business in the first place. Reach out and reconnect to those folks that got you where you are now.
