It is about that time of year again when many of us celebrate our fathers and all that they have done for us. Good fathers contribute so much to our success, especially those of us who have become business owners. If you were lucky enough to have a good father, chances are you have the desired skills to run a successful business and are knowledgeable about effective business practices.
There is a sweet saying that “A father is someone who carries a picture in his wallet of where his money used to be.” Of course, the less sentimental version says, “A father is someone who carries bills in his wallet where his money used to be.” Neither statement is wrong. Good fathers typically carry sentimental pictures along with tons of bills. It’s part of the job description.
Either version conveys the same message, that families are expensive and our fathers are often saddled with a lot of bills due to the care they provide us. Whether your father was someone who managed his money wisely or really struggled financially, chances are you learned a few lessons from observing how he took care of his bills. Many people who manage a business, or own their own company, have a lot to be thankful for on Father’s Day.
Father’s Day traditions vary from family to family. No matter how you want to celebrate, a nice way to give thanks is to incorporate some of the lessons that your father taught you into your business practice. This Father’s Day, you can show your father just how much he has done for you by making strong, decisive steps in your business ventures. Towne Mailer recognizes that many of the bill management principles taught by fathers can be honored by outsourcing your bill printing and mailing needs. Here are a few principles we can represent:
Initiative- Did your father teach you how to put your best foot forward? Did he have motivational quips about, “Cease the day” and “Grab the bull by the horns?” If you are one of the many lucky ones who learned how to have a strong work ethic by the motivational guidance of your father, you probably know how having strong initiative has served you well in your business endeavors.
‘Initiative’ is the drive to get things started. It’s a strong sense of ambition. It’s the ability to grab opportunities as they arise. And, it’s the key character trait that most hiring committees seek for their management team.
If your father taught you how to take initiative for your career path, you know how to identify a good opportunity when you see one. Towne Mailer provides you the opportunity to save money while decreasing your office workload. By outsourcing your bill printing and mailing production, you will seize the opportunity for post office discounts and will save money on postage. Your office staff will feel relief when they are no longer burdened by printing mail, stuffing envelopes, applying postage, and sorting mail bins. By outsourcing your printing and mailing needs, you can eliminate the stress and strain on your office technology, like your computer and printer. Not to mention, the cost of office supplies, like office paper, printer ink, and envelopes, will be greatly reduced. Plus, with Towne Mailer’s automated services, you can trust that your mail will be professionally processed from here on out.
Take the initiative and arrange for your business to outsource your bill printing and mailing production. Show your father and your employees that you have the drive plus the ability to take advantage of smart opportunities. Watch how this decision leads to greater success and higher workplace morale.
Independence- What greater responsibility do fathers have than to instill a sense of independence in their children? Reading, sports, homework, chores, and allowance are just a few ways fathers often teach their children the importance of a strong sense of independence. Some may claim that it is a father’s job to push their children to gain their footing in the fast-moving world outside of their home. Regardless of how your father taught you to be independent, it is undeniable that independence is essential to success in business.
Independence, also described as self-sufficiency, is the bedrock to the success of any business. Employees who are short of self-sufficiency are often insecure and lack the where-with-all to complete tasks delegated to them. Independence is also the driving force that allows business owners and employees to course correct when they identify a problem with their current operation. Without a doubt, fathers who have taught a great deal of independence have raised their children to be leaders.
As a business owner or a manager, you may question what steps you can take to encourage your staff to use more independence; to be better leaders. Hiring an outsourced bill printing and mailing service, like Towne Mailer, leads to more independence for your in-house team Consider your office’s production of printing and mailing all your company’s bills. A lot of time and effort goes into typing your clients’ information, printing out individual bills, folding, stuffing, and sealing each bill into their envelopes, and applying postage. This eats away a great deal of time and labor from your in-house team’s productivity. When you use an outsourced bill printing and mailing service, you relieve all of this burden from your staff.
Towne Mailer is fully automated, which means after the client’s information is entered into the system, we provide timely professional bills without any more input from your staff. Your team can return their focus to their core competencies, which will inevitably increase their productivity and morale. You free them up from mundane tasks and allow them the independence to contribute to your business with the skills they enjoy.
Support- After fathers teach us how to exercise our initiative and strengthen our independence, at the end of the day the greatest lesson is knowing when to ask for support. Good fathers, fathers who are worth celebrating, teach us that we can trust others. When we feel overwhelmed, fragile, or unable to go on, we can count on others for support.
In business, this support is fulfilled when we know how to delegate tasks. Any good business owner or manager knows what tasks to tackle on their own and what tasks to delegate to professionals. Have you ever known an entrepreneur who seemed to have all their ducks in a row, but inevitably failed in their business adventure? Chances are they could have had a different outcome if they knew when to reach out for additional support.
