Only You

As a small business owner, I wear many hats. But I am also acutely aware that there are some tasks that only I can perform. Not making that distinction is one reason why I’m facing burned out after several years in the business.

I had to literally be involved in business development, serving clients, invoicing, keeping accounts, creating brochures.

And some tasks were taking way too much of my time that I dropped the important balls.

If you are in a similar situation, then you’d need to do this.

Should I Be Doing This

There are really just two options here: do it or delegate it.

However, I know some of you might be thinking: I tried and it took me longer to explain it then for me to do it. Hence, I’ve decided to do it myself.

If you faced that problem, it is because you haven’t gotten your processes down. But that’s a topic for another post.

Your Turn…

Action: review the tasks for your projects and mark out which are the ones that only you can do. For the remaining tasks, find a way to outsource them.
