Are you borrowing time from sleep just to get everything done?
If that’s you, it’s likely time for you to get some help. Knowing how and where to find the right type of support can be a daunting task for business owners so in this episode, I unpack 3 types of support that are available to you so you can find what works best for you and your business.
I talk about outsourcing and the numerous types of work that can be outsourced, both for ongoing and short term project work. I discuss hiring a subcontractor and how this can be really helpful to accommodate the growing needs of your business and enable you to sit within your zone of genius. I also talk about hiring an employee and explain some of the intricacies involved in this option.

Topics We Covered:
[0:40]: There comes a point in your business where you need support. This can provoke an emotional response for some and it can be tricky to know how to go about it.

[5:00]: Once off project support. For example; copywriting, a tech VA or website developer. This is less about the client side and more about the operational side of your business.
[6:50]: #2 Hiring a subcontractor to accommodate the growing needs of your business and enable you to sit within your zone of genius
[8:30]: #3 PAYG. Bringing in an employee to support you inside your business, which comes with more complexities due to legal requirements and obligations.
