When you are so focused on doing things for your clients and not doing those things for your own business you reach burnout. Outsourcing is a key part of taking your business from startup to scale without losing your mind.
We wanted to let you in on some strategies we learned when we were in startup mode with Happy Hour Hangouts. We started to outsource but not as early as we should have to avoid burnout. In the last 3 years we've learned a lot of strategies to go from startup to scale without losing your mind.
Too Close to Your Biz
You can't read the label from inside the bottle. Everyone in business does this. It's easier to have an outside expert giving feedback.
Businesses Are Like Icebergs
What you see at the top is not everything that is going on. When we compare our businesses to another business, you aren't actually seeing the whole picture.
It Is Not If You Could Do It But If You Should Do It
So often there are things that you can do but you shouldn't be doing it because it will lead you to burn out.
It is easy as your profits grow to keep that money, but scale wisely. Reinvest.
Outsource Wisely to Go From Startup to Scale
Paying someone more with more expertise will give you more in the long run.
Tech Stuff Can Take Up Too Much Brain Space
Staying in your zone of business will keep your creativity and productivity higher.
You Want Exponential Growth
You can't have exponential growth if you are bottlenecking your business. You don't want menial tasks to take up your time.
