Why You Shouldn’t Do Everything Yourself

Why You Shouldn’t Do Everything YourselfYou are an entrepreneur. You run your own business. The problem is you are only one person. You can’t do everything!

I know, I want to do everything myself too. I want to save money. I need to make sure it’s done right, for heaven’s sake! Well, that is a recipe for burn-out! I know.

I’ve been there.

A few months ago I got on a call with one of my coaches and after just a few minutes she said “Carol, you need to take a week off!” I told her it was terrible timing because I had so much to do. She said it didn’t matter. If I didn’t take a break, I would start messing things up. Of course I could do what I wanted. It is my business and my life after all. But I did hire her to HELP me.

So, I reluctantly agreed. It was hard at first. But after the week was over I realized that the break actually brought clarity to some projects I was struggling with.

So, back to doing everything yourself – well, NOT doing everything yourself! There are some things you are really good at. That’s why you started your business. You have talents and skills that you can help people with. Things you really love to do!

But there are all those OTHER things that you HAVE to do to run your business. Those things you really don’t like to do. That’s what I’m talking about. Get someone else to do those things for you, someone who actually likes doing them and is good at it.

Outsource it!

What that will do for you is

  1. Free up your time to do what you are good at.
  2. Take those undesirable tasks OFF your plate – what a relief!
  3. Keep you from burning out trying to do everything yourself.
  4. Make you more money!

Wait! How can paying someone else make you more money? Remember #1? The more time you can spend doing what you are good at, helping people with your talents and skills, the more money you will make. 

How does that sound? You will be less stressed and make more money! Fantastic!

So, sit down and figure out what you really don’t like doing. I’m sure it won’t take you very long to come up with a thing or two. Then find someone to do it for you! You will be so glad you did!

I’d be happy to jump on the phone and talk about what you need and how I can help you. [intlink id=”42″ type=”page”]Click here[/intlink] to schedule a time and let’s see how we can free up your time and get you moving forward faster!
