#1 Outsourcing something you don’t know how to do
From time to time in your business, you need to do something that you have no idea how to do.
Because you are an amazing entrepreneurial woman, you COULD learn how to do whatever this thing is.
BUT… is that the best use of your time?
Is learning that skill part of your zone of genius?
It’s a better business decision to find someone who is an expert in that field and pay them to do the task.
What does delegating to an expert look like?
Here are some examples:
- A website developer who hires an expert in CSS to code one specific portion of a website
- A marketing strategist who hires a graphic designer to design an ad as part of a client’s campaign
- A coach who hires a Facebook ads expert to run all of their ads
- Hiring a bookkeeper
This sort of delegating is relatively easy for entrepreneurs to do because even if you want to do #allthethings, you recognize that it is not a good use of your time to learn a complicated skill.
#2 Outsourcing something you know how to do… AND have been doing
Here is where things get a little tricky.
When you have been doing something and you are good at it, then it can be hard delegate to someone else.
Maybe you are thinking…
- No one else can do this as good as I can
- This task only takes me 10 minutes. It’s going to take longer to explain it to someone else
- It’s cheaper to just do it myself
I totally hear you!
But, if you want to:
- Grow your business
- Make more money
- and/or have more free time
Then, you have to start delegating things!
If you are 100% happy with where you are in life and business, then I want to talk to you!! (Send me an email and we are going to chat.)
Make a list of the business tasks that you find frustrating, time consuming, or that you are constantly procrastinating.
For me, that’s creating social media graphics and posts.
Delegating, even one of these tasks, will create the momentum to start delegating more!
