The time is now!
By hiring somebody, if only for a couple of hours a week, is an investment in the growth of your business. Even though you are handling everything fine on your own right now, at one point you may want to grow or take vacation without bringing your work with you.
In all honesty, it is impossible to be great at everything in your business.
Also, I’m sure there are few things you don’t enjoy doing anyway.
Those are the things you can start getting help with!
The stuff you constantly dread doing and wish somebody else could do for you…
Yep, that is the stuff you don’t need to do, instead you can have somebody help you with it.
If you’re reading this and saying, “I can’t hire somebody right now!”, I hear you.
You don’t need to hire somebody full time, or even part time. There are plenty of people who would love to just get a few hours here and there, maybe they have multiple clients they are working a few hours for.
In other words, hiring somebody as soon as possible for just 2 hours a week, to do the little things you don’t love will relieve an incredible amount off your plate.
The “I can do it better myself” mentality will only take you so far. Even if it takes more time to teach them how to do it, remembering that hiring is an investment in your future, as well as your business, and the long-term success of both.
It is also good to train your mind not to think about everything you need to do on your own, as that can create a lot of stress and later build up to spreading yourself too thin. Rather, remembering to hand off tasks because things become too much will set you up for success.
Does hiring someone have to be costly?
Hiring somebody for just two hours doesn’t have to be expensive either. There are plenty of options and tools out there to help you find people either locally, domestically, or internationally.
By getting help with the stuff you don’t love for two hours a day or week means you will get two more hours to focus on the stuff you enjoy and are good at.
Slowly but surely, you are working towards focusing on the stuff you do the best while letting others do what they are good at.
