While we’ve talked about outsourcing and hiring in the past, I wanted to give my insight into why outsourcing in small ways can be beneficial to your business. As a business owner, I know that it can be intimidating to think about hiring someone full time or handing over a lot of work to a virtual assistant or other contractor. While that may work for some businesses, and is very beneficial as you grow, starting small can ease your workload and help you better serve your clients right where you are now.

Topics Discussed:

  • Why you should start small when choosing to outsource

  • Figuring out what to outsource in your business

  • Finding people or programs that you trust

  • Working with someone to make sure everything is running smoothly

  • How I started outsourcing at Lemon and the Sea

Action Steps:

  1. Make a list of tasks you would like to get off your plate

  2. Create a detailed description of the work you’re looking to outsource

  3. Ask your friends or trusted Facebook groups for references of people who may be able to help
