A small business owner often thinks he has to “do it all.” He may say, ”I AM my business, who else can help with this?” However, you can outsource just about anything, for a price. Many people do this for technical things (web development, printing, etc.) but try to fight through the marketing, selling, development, administration and accounting, etc.
You cannot be good at everything! Even if you work in a specialized field, there are probably things you are not so good at and that cause you to waste a lot of time. Consider how you can partner with people around you to create win-win situations.
- Consider what is on your plate.
- Rate on a scale from 1-5 what you are great at versus what you don’t like and takes you a lot of time
- Brainstorm how you could collaborate with someone else to get this done. Think outside “buying” assistance, consider how to make win-win situations.
Keep Charging & Shine!
