In the dynamic landscape of entrepreneurship, time is of the essence. As a visionary entrepreneur, your core strengths lie in ideation, innovation, and driving the growth of your business. However, the path to success often entails a multitude of tasks that can divert your attention from what you need to focus on most! A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to connect with an impressive and similarly minded young entrepreneur who's actively involved in real estate investment. While helping him and his partner with a real estate transaction and engaging in an enriching discussion, he shared the phrase, "Do what you do best and hire out the rest." I'm slowly learning as a new business owner that task allocation is key and using your resources around you will allow you to scale your business successfully.
One of the first things you can recognize is sticking to what you are good at! Think of all the things you're really great at as your special skills in running your business. These are the things that make you stand out and help your business grow. When you concentrate on the tasks that match your expertise, you make sure you're always doing your best work. For example, I am very personable and love to network so this is a strong quality I possess that helps the steady growth of the business. You want to use your time wisely because your time is super valuable! Have you thought about 'sharing the load' so you can get more done? You can delegate the tasks you aren't great at and tend to take you twice as much time versus a task you're great at. Whether it be stuff like paperwork, filing, technical things like building a website or automation (yep, I outsourced for that one!), you can give these jobs to the people that are experts at it. If you can outsource some of these tasks, your business will run smoother and not only will you learn from the experts, it will help you grow your business overall!
Once you've delegated those tasks to outsource, it can create big gains! When you start using outside help, it's not just a quick fix - it's a smart move that pays off over time. Sometimes we question if it's worth spending x amount of dollars to outsource a task, however, think about the amount of time you would have to put into the task to figure it out. I've personally gotten to the point where I have invested far too much of 'my time' to figure something out. It's far too valuable time that is wasted when it's worth focusing on the things that really match your goals. When you delegate these tasks, you aren't just handing them over, you are creating a network of experts who enhances your businesses capabilities. This approach allows for scalability, innovation, and adaptability, all crucial components in an ever-evolving business landscape.
In conclusion, the journey of a successful entrepreneur is marked by a judicious allocation of resources and time. The principle of "do what you do best and hire out the rest" serves as a compass to navigating the complex terrain of entrepreneurship. By focusing on your core strengths, outsourcing tasks to the experts, and building a network of skilled professionals, you're not only optimizing efficiency, you're crafting a golden path towards sustainable growth and longlasting success!
