Ok hear me out! If you struggle with the thought of outsourcing, think of it like you do technology…
There are always going to be people who don’t want the newest phone with all the bells and whistles, the improved camera, or the fastest network. Some people are totally fine with the RAZR phone they have had since they were 16 that texts and barely has the internet (I don’t understand these people, but I’m sure they exist). 🤪
There are also people who resist outsourcing because they have ALWAYS done it themselves. I get it, I totally do! The loss of perceived “control” can be scary. But what if we looked at outsourcing the same way we looked at technology – it’s a way for us to evolve our business, to grow with it instead of against it, and make the business (and ourselves) more efficient?
When you outsource to someone who not only loves doing parts of the business you dread, but can do it faster and maybe better 😉 – I can promise you, THAT feels like freedom (similar to how it feels not to have to print 50 pages of mapquest directions to go on vacation – and yes, I am that old).
Is outsourcing something you want to try this year in your business, or are you sticking to your guns with the do-it-yourself route? If you’re interested in working with a virtual assistant, send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org!
