Business Running on Auto Pilot

This weekend I'm heading to NYC for my birthday and mini vacation. It will be my first time in New York City, and we've got some fun stuff lined up (Giants NFL game, Yankee Stadium to see my Blue Jays in town, and other tourist stuff).
The past few years I have basically never left town during the football season, as I usually spent Friday's and Saturday's posting articles on my sites and getting ready for football on the weekends. That also meant usually not going out on Friday night's.
I finally made a huge step for myself by teaching all of my writers on my main sports betting site how to post at our picks blog properly with proper titles, call to actions, adding images, etc. It may take a few weeks for them to get it down perfectly, but so far so good.
Now instead of having to post ~15 articles on the weekend for college football and NFL games I can enjoy a low key weekend. I do other stuff for my websites leading up to the weekend and am really busy throughout the week, but now just maintenance stuff on weekends which is awesome.
I really should have gotten around to this last year, but I just never took the time to teach them how to post. I also have all of my writers sending me their weekly summary and how much I owe them (I pay on performance of their predictions), so I don't have to go back to the articles and double check box scores to see how they did. That will save me another 20-30 minutes, and although it doesn't sound like much it adds up.
To any new affiliates out there I highly recommend trying to find ways to put parts of your business on auto pilot to save yourself time that you can use else where. I wish I had started doing this earlier, but late is better then never. Now I don't have to stress out about going away for a weekend, and I can enjoy some time off during a busy, busy football season. Have a good weekend everyone, and if you are trying to get a hold of me for whatever reason I may not respond until Wednesday or Thursday.
