Episode Summary:

Main Takeaways:

  • When work starts to feel overwhelming and consumes your thoughts, sit with a journal to write down all about it. Just putting actual words to your feelings will help a great deal.
  • Challenges are an indicator of growth so they’ll always be there. The important thing is for you to become someone who’s comfortable with facing their fears at different levels in life.
  • Outsourcing can be really scary for multiple reasons but make sure you make an intentional effort to delegate work when you can and focus on your zone of genius.
  • If delegation is difficult for you, start by outsourcing a one-time project to get in the practice of someone else taking over a task.
  • How to outsource effectively:
  1. Start by outsourcing to tools first.
  2. Take a look at your outsourcing budget (after paying yourself first).
  3. Make a list of the tasks that you need to outsource.
  4. Find a VA that aligns with your brand and cultural values.
  • Always choose action over perfection.
