Imagine if you could pay somebody to do press-ups, all day every day, and you were the one that got the results for their efforts?
They could go through the sweat and pain, and you’d be the one that can look in the mirror at the end of the day and enjoy a six pack and toned arms.
If that existed, we’d all go bonkers crazy for it, right?
Well if you think about it, what I’ve just described is outsourcing the jobs in your business you just don’t have time for or sweat about because they are not done and d-day has arrived
It really does baffle me…
You can literally buy 5, 10, 30 hours of an expert’s time and get them to perform a task that positively impacts you.
Maybe it’s not press-ups, maybe it’s chasing money owing, reducing your pile of paperwork, or meeting tax obligations to avoid penalties.
Essentially you can pay somebody to spend their time focused on making your train set run faster.
Yes it costs money, but in regards to your business output, speed and ability to scale – it needs to happen, and often it’s the passionate business owner that ultimately suffers or sacrifices what they love doing most.
Some food for thought? Hit reply if we can help you do the ‘press-ups.’
