When To Outsource

On May 3rd, 2012, posted in: Accounting by 0 Comment

You’ve been running your business for a while now and are getting busier each passing day. That’s great news, right? Of course it is! You’re also discovering though that there some business tasks that are falling by the wayside. When was the last time you balanced your checkbook, answered all of your emails, or updated your calendar? If you find you’re concentrating completely on growing your business and meeting with new prospects, you may be neglecting the other day-to-day tasks.

And the reverse is true: Are you spending your precious time doing activities that don’t produce revenue, while leaving activities that do create cash flow undone? If so, the time to delegate to on outside vendor is NOW! That’s all outsourcing really is: delegating.

The best time to outsource is before you have an urgent need. Trying to find a virtual accountant to load all of last year’s accounting activity two weeks before your income tax extension deadline is not the time to outsource. The time was two months ago!

Don’t let yourself get to the point where you feel stuck, overwhelmed, or unproductive. Outsource!
