As a business owner, you have to do everything no matter how great or small. Even when that task produces no income, no billable hours, no sales and no growth; it’s your business, your responsibility and it’s all on your shoulders.

That may have been the business model of yesterday but it isn’t the business model of today. No more spreading yourself thin. If the chore doesn’t produce income, delegate it.

Now we are outsourcing things such as lawn services and customer support even delivery services and property management. Outsourcing allows business owners to keep their focus on the core pieces of their business while simultaneously building a powerhouse support staff without the overhead.

Is it time to build your own support staff “dream team”? If you’re trying to decide, ask yourself these questions:

1.  What could you do with more time?

Your hours make you money but what if you could put more billable hours in the day? Have more time for sales calls to grow your customer base? You can by restructuring your responsibilities for the maximum profit by outsourcing tasks that produce little to nothing in terms of results.

2.  Could cutting costs boost your business?

Give your business staffing flexibility by outsourcing seasonal and cyclical business needs like accounting services during tax time and lawn services during the summer.

3.  Are you spending your time doing what you love?

You started your business because you’re good at what you do. You love it. It’s your passion. So why allow anything to get in the way of doing what you do best? Outsourcing means bringing in experts to do the job you don’t want while you focus on the job of your dreams.
