Are you working late hours and weekends just trying to get a handle on all of the moving parts?
If that’s something you tend to struggle with, consider doing the following: 1. Be extremely clear about your priorities, and what the most important tasks or projects are. And knowing what kind of learner you are can help speed up your ability to absorb, implement, and move forward in your business.
Being aware of how you approach things, how you learn, and how you execute can be very helpful information.
If you know you are a broader-picture kind of person, you might be better served by creating ideas and the overall direction in your business, and then contracting out the more detail-oriented tasks and projects.
I mean the kind of shrinkage you get when you’re not being fully present, playing your biggest game or pushing yourself to your maximum potential. Whether it’s a new way of scheduling your day, a new approach to speaking with your staff, or picking up the phone to check in with clients instead of sending an email, try taking a new action that will support you in being bold. But after taking a leap of faith and outsourcing, their whole world opened up as to the possibilities of the future of their business, as well as the ability to currently make more money overall. Some of us are a bit farsighted– meaning that we can only see things way out in front of us and what lies ahead, and others of us are nearsighted, seeing everything up close and in detail, but not much beyond that.
So how are you going to avoid staying small and propel yourself into making a lasting impression in your business? The first step is to do a trial run with someone who you think is a good fit.

I’ve worked with many reluctant business owners who, at first, thought they could continue to do everything on their own. My EXCITING new program starts in just a few weeks! *Get in the groove and “like” me at https://facebook.com/Erin Collins Coaching* When I think about running a business, I think about how unique each entrepreneur and business owner is, and how differently they approach their businesses overall.
Outsourcing is an investment in yourself and your business, and can be the reason your business jumps to the next level.
Saying yes automatically may be counterintuitive, but it’s a great way to put yourself out there, and let everyone know you are ready to take on the world. • What tasks or projects do I want to outsource first?
When you feel fear creeping into your head, immediately shake it off, charge forward and refuse to let it hold you back. • What is my skill level in each of those areas and how long might it take someone else to do the same work? • What would it cost for someone to do the same task-oriented work?
Keep focused on where being bold will make the biggest difference in your business and dive in! So stop plodding along and fight it by being bold, disarming fear and being the star of your industry. Ask yourself the following if you’re struggling doing everything alone: • How much time do I spend in each area of my business daily?
Be clear on what you stand for in your business, what your message is, and be sure to stick to your guns at all times. Shrinkage is a terrible disease that can seep into the way you run your business. In my opinion, being a smart entrepreneur or small business owner means knowing how much time things take, and when it’s time to ask for help and outsource.
