40 Days to a Better Business: Day 11 – Outsourcing Tasks


40 Days to a Better Business

There came a time in my business when I simply couldn’t do it all. There too many tasks, too many emails and too many children that needed my attention for me to be able to do it all well. And as hard as it was for me to admit to myself that I needed help back then, I’m SO glad I did.

As work-at-home business owners, many of us with kids underfoot, we tend to think that we have to do it all. I remember thinking to myself that I had ASKED for this life, so it was out of the question to ask for help.  Thankfully, it was right around this time that a godly friend pointed out to me that even Moses had to be told when he needed help. And God provided that help when he asked. (See Exodus 18)

So, how do we know when it’s time to get help?

Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

1. Are there enough hours in the day for me to accomplish what’s on my list (without losing my sanity)?

2. Are there tasks on my list that only I can do that are getting pushed aside by general tasks that someone else can do?

3. Can I find a volunteer/intern to train or afford to pay someone to help me?

If the answers to the first two questions are yes, then it is probably time to start looking toward adding help. If you’re unsure about the answer to the third question, begin asking God to place this person in your life. When He does so, you’ll know it’s time to move forward.

Once you’ve made the decision to add help, it’s time to make 2 lists:

List 1: Tasks only I can do (For me this includes things like writing, speaking, etc.)

List 2: Tasks that someone else can handle for me.

It’s time to consider whether it’s worth it for you to be doing every tedious task that your business requires. There is certainly a time when you’re starting out that every task may fall to you. But, as your business grows and flourishes, be aware that you may need to ask for help. Ask God to guide you as you seek to follow Him and be a good steward of your time, money and overall business.
