DO YOU EVEN OUTSOURCE?
AFTER READING THIS I HOPE YOU DO!
Oh the scary phrase that not one wants to truly think about - OUTSOURCING.
Let’s start simple,
What is outsourcing??According to Google it is to contract (work) out or abroad. Meaning that you hire someone else to do a job you don’t want to.
A few examples would be
Hiring an assistant to take some of your workload, (My Bianca with lash clients!)
Photographer to take your social media pics
Social Media planner. They can either plan your social media posts, pics, and/or just engage on your profile to bring up your engagement!
Business coach, to help you stay organized and on track with your goals. There is not reason to do things on your own!
Manager, if you are wanting to build the salon of your dreams, I HIGHLY recommend looking into hiring one of these wonderful positions.
Handyman! This could be yo man or woman but cool enough there are people out there that do contracted work for anything extra you need them to do! Designing your window display, cleaning your car, dusting your store/business, taking your dog for a walk, getting groceries and really anything you need help with.
The options are endless but also priceless. Now I bet you are thinking - but ain’t nobody got money for all that! Honey, don’t forget you have goods to trade, PLUS your time is more valuable than the average dollar. Just sayin. If a social media planner works for $10 an hour and an average of 10-15 hours a week, that is BEYOND WORTH IT to me to have that time to myself. It’s all about priorities and what is driving you crazy.
If you are ready to start the outsourcing life, first see what is the #1 thing you absolutely hate doing in your business and see what you can do about it! College kids will do anything to earn a dollar or two :)
WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER
WORK ON YOUR BUSINESS NOT IN YOUR BUSINESS
BOSS BABE POWER UNITE!
I personally outsource my social planning, my lash client assistant, a handy woman that helps with my random needs, graphic design I outsourced for a while, once every 3-6 months I will hire a photographer to take pictures for me.
All these things yes I can do on my own. But do I want to? No. I don’t. So I don’t do them! That way I have more time to email you and make the real connection - YOU!
What is a couple things you hate doing in your business/life? I want to hear it and know I am not the only crazy one here!
