There Is A Solution If There’s Too Much Time Working
An entrepreneur will always be busy, but are you spending too much time working? More input doesn’t necessarily mean better output.
Apart from poor productivity, the effects of working too much can lead to stress, frustration, loneliness, and general poor health.
But who’s going to do the work? After all, your business won’t run itself and you can’t afford to employ somebody else full time. Perhaps it’s time to consider outsourcing some tasks to a virtual assistant.
There are advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing.
When your business is on a tight budget the cost of outsourcing tasks to a third party may not sound like a good idea. After all, why pay somebody to do something that you can do yourself for free. But is it really free if you do it? There may not be a monetary cost, but what’s your time actually worth?
Rather than struggling to do everything yourself, you can hire somebody else to do it for you. If your client pays you $100, you can pay somebody $50, making a 50% profit and saving yourself probably 90% of the time you would spend doing it yourself.
If you’re on a tight budget, here are 6 ways you can control the cost of outsourcing so that it’s a benefit to your business, not a burden.
