Okay, folks, time to listen up! This topic took me a very long time to fully grasp, accept, and utilize. As entrepreneurs we are natural go-getters, dream-chasers, do-it-all’ers— almost to a fault. With all the time, energy, and WORK we put into our business, it can be hard to let others “in” and contribute to our business. After all, this business is our baby and no one can truly help because they don’t know it like we do, right? Wrong!
1) Free up your time to focus where you’re most profitable.
2) Work ON your business instead of IN your business.
3) Give you TIME to say YES to the right opportunities.
4) Free you up mentally to be more creative or innovative.
Remember that elated, limitless feeling you had when you first dreamed up your business? Sometimes it can be hard to channel that inspired, sparkly-eyed lens when you are in over your head as a one woman show. Outsourcing allows you to get back to the roots of your business and rediscover the why of your business. By opening our schedules and freeing up brain space, outsourcing can lead to a more open, fearless side of us. With a calm spirit and relaxed mind, there is no telling what creative, innovate ideas you can dream up!
5) Allow you to raise up a team.
When you grow a team you are able to can serve more people and have a greater impact. The saying “the more, the merrier” can be applicable as a business model as well! Outsourcing allows our solo job to outreach; thus expanding your impact. With more bodies working towards the same vision, your business can flourish. When each member of the team is able to utilize his or her talents to contribute, the paths for your business are limitless.
It took me a long time to bite the bullet, but man, I am SO thankful I did. Utilizing outsourcing and a team-based business approach has done wonders for both personal and professional growth, and I really encourage you to pursue it! What’s holding you back?
