You will get to a point in your business (if you're not already there) where you physically can't do more work. More customers want what you’ve got, and you don’t have the bandwidth to deliver! That means you can’t take their money!!! WTF! Emergency!!
Sweetie, sit down. It’s time for us to have “the talk.”
You need to stop doing everything yourself and start building a team that can help you take your business to the next level. I know you’re nervous but we can do this together. It will only hurt for a minute and you’ll feel so much better after. There, there. It's ok. You can do this.
I talk with people all the time that are have trouble making the leap and bringing on their first person to help. There are numerous reasons (or excuses) why delegating doesn’t work for you: you’re a perfectionist, you need to be in control, you have trust issues, and so many more.
You’ll need to talk more to your therapist or life coach to really hash out those items. You’re not alone, we’ve all got some sort of issue that makes this hard.
BUT, Even with all that baggage, you can still improve your delegating skills and set yourself up for success to bring people onto your team and take your business to the next level.
If you are not intentional in bringing people into your team and delegating you often set them up to fail. When they don’t do what you want them to, you fall back into the familiar cycle of "if I want it done right, I should do it myself."
But that is the WORST statement you can make if you want to grow your business.Read More
