As a business owner you will wear many hats and have many responsibilities fall on you directly. At times you may get so caught up in the day to day business that you fail to realize you can’t do it all yourself.  Finding the right business support is essential to your business success. To assist in your process, try to assess your workload.  Deciding what needs to be done and whether you will be able to outsource it will help you get a clear idea of what type of help you will need.

Outsourcing or subcontracting is a great way to get the help you need without the responsibility attached to hiring a part time or full time employee.  The individual or company you partner with is a professional. You only need to discuss the scope of the project, the desired end result and your business support partner will take it from there. 

As you are organizing your thoughts initially to outsource a project or multiple projects, you will want to do the following:

  • Make a list of your everyday tasks
  • Identify those that need to be done only by you and those that can be handed off
  • Determine if there will be a significant savings to you by delegating
