Keeping time on administration will allow you to focus on what matters to you: growing your venture and looking for new opportunities.

To collaborate with workforce online in a practical and professional level, even if they live in remote areas of Australia, you can sign up for Slack. You can add people to different teams, collaborate on projects, and add documents to review. Slack also works well on your phone, which means you can initiate online calls directly to employees, instead of trying to call them on the phone. You will also be able to send out broadcasts and get feedback on different business areas.
