Have you ever wondered if it’s time for you to hire help but doubts and fears keep you from doing it? There are so many reasons we don’t hire out when it’s time. Either we’re insecure about whether or not we deserve it or we think we can’t afford it. Other times, we question our ability to manage another person or service. When you feel the tug towards it and that tug won’t go away, it may be time to step out and get help. Consider the following when trying to figure out if it’s time for you to get help.
You’re Burned Out
Burn out is a common thing amongst leaders and entrepreneurs. We often work so hard because we are the sole owners of our empire and if we don’t work to protect it, no one else will. Burnout is defined as “a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress that occurs when you feel overwhelmed, emotionally drained, and unable to meet constant demands.” Essentially, it’s what happens when you go for a long period of time without adequate rest and attention to your needs. If you find yourself in this place, where you’re ready to quit everything, it may be time to hire someone to help you.
You have More Work Than You Do Time
If you’ve managed to make it without being burned out, that’s a great thing. Maybe burnout is not your thing, maybe you just have more work coming in than you have time to get it done. If you find yourself falling behind on projects or losing sleep because you’re trying to meet deadlines, it may be time to consider adding someone to help you out. In doing so, you can target the area you need help in the most and hire someone to help in that area specifically. You can also identify the small tasks that take up significant time and hire someone who can complete them for you.
You Have No Idea What You’re Doing
If you aren’t burnt out and you’re not too overwhelmed with work, another reason to hire out is if you really have no idea what you’re doing and need someone with expertise to help you. There are so many agencies, organizations, and entrepreneurs who have studied to be experts in their field. Hiring one of them (or us) to help you is a great way to have the best for your business without having to spend the time studying on your own.
