It was almost six months ago that I started recommending to a client of mine that he hire someone to help him with some of the tasks that were bogging him down or that he wasn’t taking care of properly.
Two weeks ago, after quite a bit of pushing from me, he finally pulled the plug and hired someone. Within two weeks his scheduling of appointments and jobs has completely turned around, estimates are going out to clients in a more timely and professional manner and he has a much better grasp on his business finances. The best part is that he has been pleasantly surprised with how inexpensive it is. In reality, it’s making him more money than he is spending on it.
Just as his knowledge and experience helps him to perform the services he does for his clients more efficiently, the person he hired to help him with these other tasks does the same for him. Basically, the things this provider does for him she does more efficiently than he can, allowing him to make even more money in less time.
Are you resistentent to hiring out things you’re not efficient at? Do you think you are saving money or doing better by doing it yourself? I’d enjoy having this conversation with you if you’d like. I’d also enjoy hearing more testimonials about how hiring out things has helped you.
Have a successful week.
