Have you found more value for your time than for your money? Do you think having more time is a wiser investment to become financially better? Do you think you have so much to do and have lesser time available on your hands? Do you ever wish that there was more than 24 hours in a day and that you wished you never really felt the need to rest so you can do even more?
Well, my friend, if you think you need more time to become productive, then wave the white flag. All you need to do is acknowledge the need or the usefulness of having outsourced people to work for you. Yes, outsourcing is going to be the answer to your problem with having little time on your hands.
Before you start hiring people, you must first analyze the situation. Is there a need to outsource? Are you ready to let go of the responsibilities? The second question is often intriguing, but requires much thought. It is always difficult to let go of a task that you feel you are very good at. Sometimes, you may even feel like you cannot entrust the responsibilities to other people as they may not do it well.
But if you feel there are a lot of things you can do with more time, and not become slave of your own business, you need to outsource. But you cannot just outsource – you have to do smart outsourcing. Yes, there is such a thing as smart outsourcing.
You must determine which is heavier for you – the time you gained from outsourcing and making more magic with it, or are you going to have to shell out more with outsourcing and have lesser profits? It can be quite tricky and you have to understand yourself and your business to answer this question.
You must also be wary of the quality of your product when you outsource. You might want to outsource someone to help you with the web design. You will then get more time in your hands to do something more pressing, but you are also losing the personal, creative and professional touch if you opt to work on that project.
But if you think there are other people out there who can make this work much better than you, then you got to give them that task and focus instead on the task that you are best at.
There are a lot of websites that you can outsource to make your projects easier. You can look at odesk, freelancer, rentacoder, elancer and more. The best thing about this is you get to view their profiles, look at their work and even read some feedbacks.
As an employer, you must be clear about the task, the resources they need to complete the tasks, the deadline and your expectations.
Now you can check your tasks and see if there is a need to outsource or not. When you determine this, you will find your time and money more invested and you get to build your company successfully.
