Guest Content: Are You Working Too Hard?
The actual concept of delegating tasks within the office or even outsourcing some of them to an outside organisation is not exactly new, but the way we run our businesses and the opportunities to save ourselves time and money have increased greatly since the dawn of the internet age.
Small business owners and solopreneurs with very modest budgets all enjoy a wealth of opportunities to delegate tasks and run their business in much the same way as a larger company is able to do. Bloggers and small website publishers have been presented with a great opportunity to punch above their weight as a result of the internet allowing them to chance to farm work out at realistic prices, allowing them greater control and boosting their profitability at the same time.
What appeals most about outsourcing is the opportunity to work on your business and not in it. This is a fundamental change in the way small business operator’s work, allowing them to value their time much more highly and generate a higher income by delegating tasks that would otherwise have cost them time and money if they were still doing it themselves.
Everything has a price of course, and even hiring a virtual assistant who is way more cost-effective than a full-time person taking up office space, is not going to work for free, but when it comes to value for money, they can make a big impact on your bottom line and give you more free time to develop your business.
If you’re serious about making the most of the opportunities that the internet has to offer in terms of helping to make your business more efficient and profitable and want to get the best work-life balance, then outsourcing is the route to achieving your goals.
