Today, I present Delegate/Collaborate the final step in the “Four Key Steps to a More Organized & Efficient Business” series.
Many business owners are suffering from burnout because of excessive workload. Maintaining a successful and growing business is no easy feat. Managing every aspect of the business is not sustainable, or practical, and will stifle business growth and negatively impact your health.
As I outlined in the Prioritization step, any task earmarked as “urgent but not important” should be delegated. These are tasks and projects that are necessary but do not justify occupying your valuable time.
Below are a few guidelines to assist in identifying what to delegate/collaborate.
Review your Priorities list. What tasks are you performing that do not directly drive business to your door or feed your bottom line, but are still necessary?
What tasks have you been procrastinating because it’s outside your scope of expertise?
Are there projects on your list that you need to share, either because of the project size of gap in knowledge?
As a Virtual Assistant and business owner myself, I know that delegating involves trusting someone else to help execute your vision. It may not be easy, but it’s necessary to fully achieve the level of success you envision.
If you are at the stage in your business where delegation is a must, I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how I can help you take your business to the next level.
Too much on your plate, and ready to delegate? I’m here to help!
