Critical Time Path
The critical time path is not set in stone, but depending how many websites I manage will depend on how many hours I have to dedicate in any given month. I simply do not have any spare time.
I have noticed people of late randomly phoning me at all hours of the day and night even though I clearly have my business hours set on my websites.
They phone me without scheduling appointments and are oblivious to time zones even though it clearly says I am in the UK.
I cannot answer the phone as I could be in the middle of meetings or migrating or coding and cannot be disturbed. I have since put my phone on “DO NOT DISTURB” so apologies for any convenience caused but I cannot talk to you unless you book an appointment at least 24 hours in advance. Furthermore, consider putting what you wish to discuss in writing via email rather than calling.
“My Business is purely Online B2B, I do not do physical face to face meetings”.
Finally, I cannot be away from my computer as I have an online chat option that I manage for my customers so cannot take time off work or walk away and chat for 5 minutes.
Five minutes away from my computer could be the difference between a company losing business or not and everything is trackable. I do not want to be in a position to have to explain to a business owner that I missed a chat with somebody.
I could outsource my work but I won’t because, from previous disasters stories which I have written about on my marketing site, from clients I have spoken to, I have a promise to all the businesses I manage I will not outsource work or give any virtual assistants and developers my work unless I know them personally and they are on my books.
Do not assume I can take time off work to socialize. If you are working for someone you have a guaranteed wage, whilst a self-employed entrepreneur does not, so please consider the person’s circumstances before judging or making assumptions.
