Outsourcing is not a dirty word - Small Business Blunders vol. 9

Hi, my name is Adam with Adam Lowe Creative and I help small businesses overcome the problems and challenges that we all face. Today I'm going to talk about trying to do it all yourself. As a small business owner, this seems to be a problem that most people face. They either try to take on every task themselves or they refuse to delegate.

I'm here to say that outsourcing is probably one of the best things that you can do whether that means that you've hired another employee, or you've gotten a virtual assistant, or you just outsourced tasks to another company. Being able to free yourself from the day to day workings of your business so that you can actually concentrate on growing your business rather than doing the menial tasks makes all the difference in the world.

I was speaking with a small business owner just the other day who had fantastic domain knowledge of his business and he just felt like he was not in the place where he was able to grow because he was trying to do it all himself. He also had a great team around him, but no one was managing the entire process. So I made a suggestion that he hire a project manager and that project manager should be able to look at everything that's going on, manage the interaction with all the clients, let him focus on what he does best even if it is that little bit of a technical thing that it's his special sauce but it lets him get back to doing his business and it lets him grow his business. So if you don't already, you should hire a VA or you should find strategic partners or find somebody that can help take something off of your plate. So outsourcing is not a dirty word and I hope you take advantage of it.

I'll see you next week. Take care.
