Whenever I hear entrepreneurs talk about growing their business, nearly everyone jumps immediately to outsourcing. And while outsourcing is one excellent way to grow your business (as the Outsourcing with Love team knows well!), it shouldn’t be the first step.
Instead, the first step to outsourcing and growing your business is actually by streamlining your systems.
Now, you might be thinking, “But Sarah… that’s why I want to outsource — I don’t have the time to streamline my systems myself!”
And I hear you, girl. Trust me. But what would you say if I told you outsourcing a hot mess of a business to a virtual assistant or someone similar could actually cost you time (and therefore money), instead of saving it?
