Who knows they need to outsource?
If you’re finding it difficult to offload your workload and need a chance to grow your business, outsourcing someone you can trust to help run your ‘baby’ is often one of the hardest tasks in business, nevermind hiring a whole department of staff.
Where’s this magical fountain of awesome people ready to help your business grow?
Well, you are it.
Most people can be trained, and given the right mentorship, experience, and patience, that person will turn into the awesome person you need.
Stop looking for the best of the best, especially if you’re a solopreneur or small business. Search for passion, for hunger, and for a willingness to learn and be committed to the cause.
Rip up the CVs and focus on the person. A rich, personalised cover letter speaks a thousand more words than a CV can. Why not ask for them to do a video introduction?
If you’re worried about training someone and them leaving…yes, someone may leave you, but you’ll have just both helped your business and another person grow. Plus, you’ll have learned a hell of a lot in the meantime, and that next hire just becomes that little bit easier.
