As entrepreneurs and solopreneurs we tend to try to do everything ourselves.
But, as much as we want to tell our children that it’s true, we are not good at everything. I would say the biggest change I made that has impacted my businesses has been admitting that I am not good at everything, and some things really drain my energy. I love coaching. It is a great thrill to help my clients see a brighter future. But I am so bad with numbers that I cannot even put receipts into my accounting software correctly. I used to dread the time when I had to input all those boring numbers so much so that thinking about it would sap my energy. Yes, it cost a bit of money, but hiring someone to take care of that part was such a relief that I feel like I am better at what I do because I am not worrying about that part anymore. What saps your energy? What would it really cost to hire someone else to do it? Picture yourself several months into the future. How do you envision yourself if you didn’t have to worry about doing that task anymore? If you feel a huge weight being lifted off you, it may be well worth looking into hiring someone.
