Working on your business and working in it are two different things. Working on it means you are under control and are aware of your strengths and delegating your weaknesses to others who can do it better. On the other hand, working in it means getting trapped in your own system and trying to break through it to make it successful. Working in it also means not being able to focus on what is really important and trying to take everything under control on your own.
You should be aware that it is impossible, and very stressful when you try to do everything solely just because you think you can do everything better than the rest. While it is true that you have your strengths that complement your business well, it is highly likely that your weaknesses are the major reasons why your business stays stagnant, even if its potential for greatness is extremely obvious.
You should learn to let go and farm out the rest. You need to delegate tasks to others who can do them faster and ultimately better. But what does ‘farming out the rest’ mean?
This might look like an increase on expense at the beginning, but ‘farming out’ tasks or ‘outsourcing’ is a proven-effective way to make your business flourish and allow you to earn more as you get to focus on doing what you do best. Through farming out the mundane tasks, you are taking away all of the distractions that stop you from working ON your business, allowing yourself to freely use your expertise in achieving breakthrough ideas that will make your company reach new heights.
Farming out tasks will also help improve the overall efficiency of your business. This is especially true when you outsource particular tasks to service providers who can do the tasks better than you. You have to admit that you are not good at everything, as this is one step towards achieving the ultimate success. Finding the best providers will make your work not only easier, but also more efficient, allowing extra room for development.
To be able to successfully ‘farm out the rest’ when it comes to running your company, you need to analyze the tasks that you are good at and the ones that you consider as roadblocks that take up most of your time. Find out the best providers who can do a better and a faster job, and you will definitely take your business to the top spot.
Are you FINALLY ready to transform your business and work on your business instead of in your business? Here’s HOW!
hey, I’m Kim + I am ridiculously passionate about helping you to work smarter and not harder + to realize how freaking amazing you actually are, exactly as you are and how easy business really can be when you are in alignment + simplify + add systems to organize your business + plan your business growth. I’ve been geeking out about online business, online marketing + systems + personal development + all that stuff since I created my first business back in 2006 + sold it.
This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
If you’re overwhelmed, overworked, stressed out, and worried that if you take time off the bottom will fall out from beneath you and your business will fall apart.
Then, you are in the right place my friend, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt and I’d love to support you in ending the cycle!
