When you’re considering outsourcing, the first thing that usually comes to mind is who to hire first.
The most common advice you’ll hear about this is that you should first hire someone to do the tasks that you don’t know how to do. Get someone who to fill the gaps in your business.
You can do that. But in my years of outsourcing, I found that the first task that you should outsource is the task that you know how to do. Find someone to do the thing that you’re already doing. That’s how you free up your time.
So my tip number four is who or what should you outsource first.
Hiring someone to do something you know how to do will give you a much better experience. Why? For one, you can pass on jobs that you’ve been doing but don’t really like to someone else. Once they take over that job, you’re free to do anything else.
