Last week at the eWomen luncheon my friend Jessica Butts spoke on “Live Your Business Life From The Front Seat” which was a GREAT topic that I needed to hear.
One thing she said that was a great reminder, is Don’t Do Stuff You Suck At. It’s so true folks. Three months ago I finally hired a virtual assistant to handle my invoicing. I can do it, but it tedious and I screw up something half the time. I now pay someone to do this, it take her a third of the time it took me and I’m WAY happier on the first of each month.
What stuff are you doing in your business that you suck at and need to outsource? Your website? Data entry? Billing? Your newsletter? Social Media? Accounting?
What stuff do you like to do but don’t have the time for? What would you do if you had the time not doing the stuff that makes you so frustrated and angry? Make a list, start asking for introductions to these folks, and figure out if the cost is worth it for you. Trust me, it is.
