Do you ever wonder why some business owners have such a hard time delegating? It can come across as untrusting or even selfish, but in reality, it’s likely just nervousness.
Most business owners, especially at the beginning, are doing #AllTheThings by themselves – they wear all the hats and become one with their business. So it’s no wonder that when it comes time to levelling up, delegation is one of the harder things to adjust to. Most would almost rather work more hours (than they already do!) just so that they can continue doing it all.
But – we know that this isn’t sustainable. You’ll burn yourself out so quickly, and potentially even your business. Especially with these last few years when the economy is less than stellar, many entrepreneurs are keeping as much to themselves solely to keep costs down.
This is why we wanted to share a few tips to get started on your delegation journey, so that you can dip your toes in and comfortably realize how much more you’ll get done in your business by handing off some of your tasks.
There are SO many ways in which VA’s can help any business owner, but we also understand that outsourcing any task can seem overwhelming and uncomfortable. Easing your way into delegating is important, as it can include smaller tasks that can gain your trust and increase your comfort level, allowing you to realize how much more you can delegate down the road.
Bring your business to new heights and begin delegating today! If you’re already using a VA or someone on your team to help, look for other ways in which they can help you and your business. There are always opportunities for more delegation or revamping of systems to increase your efficiency.
