I was speaking recently with another fellow business owner. We were talking about delegating. She commented that she had everything under control in her business – that she could handle everything on her own and didn’t need any help. She said this as if she were proud of this fact.
I understand if you don’t want to scale your company and you’re okay with staying a solo-business owner, but you should still want to make as much revenue as you possibly can. You can’t maximize your income potential if you’re doing all of the non-billable activities in your business.
You will need to delegate to grow. What would it look like if you were to delegate ten hours of non-billable time per week? What would you be able to do with those extra hours, work with clients? Do the math to figure out what those extra ten hours per week would do to your monthly and yearly income. Just think of what that could do to your bottom line.
So, being proud of the fact that you’re able to do it all in your business isn’t a good thing. Don’t let your business become stagnant, but instead focus on how you can maximize your time and income by delegating.
