How to Work Smarter

Business owners, in particular startup business owners, don't have the time to learn all we need to know for business success. It might be time to ‘rent some brains’.

As a business owner, it’s easy to feel like we’re wearing many hats, but often we can’t be a master of all. That’s why it’s important to take the leap and “rent some brains” – hiring experts to help your business succeed. 

From calling past clients for referrals to managing employees and launching new products, there are many tasks that can make us money. But if they’re beyond our skill set or simply don’t fit our time or interests, it’s time to consider outsourcing. 

To determine the return on investment, take the time to calculate how much of your own time you save – say, if you value your time at $50 per hour and you’re doing bookkeeping for 10 hours a week, your cost is $500 a week. If you hire a bookkeeper for $25 per hour and they can do the job in less time, your cost is less than $250 per week.

Plus, there’s the added benefit of delegating tasks you don’t have time for or don’t enjoy. So, when you’re ready to take the leap and “rent some brains,” you’ll have more time to focus on the tasks that will make you the most money.

It can be difficult and scary to let go of control and trust another person, but to grow your business for cash, freedom and profit, it’s essential.
