Before you outsource

 

Make a list of everything you’re doing daily (whether business or personal)

Then make 3 more lists

  • List the things you hate doing
  • Make a List all the things you can’t do
  • List all the things you shouldn’t do

Take each task and do another brainstorm of everything that goes into doing that one task in the order you do it (this will become your workflow & new hire training) Once you have a clear vision of your workflow, outsourcing simply becomes an act of delegating tasks that do not need your personal touch.

Once you’ve made all those lists and you’ve thought about what you want to create systems for, start creating screenflows (screen recordings) of you doing each task!!

You will use this to train your VA later

You are doing each task anyways so get into the habit of recording yourself doing everything and actually talking your way through it.

Why you picked that certain font over the others

what colors you like and don’t like

how you usually talk , words you don’t use etc

You can’t expect others to know what you’re thinking so talk them through WHY you do the things the way you do.

When is outsourcing right for your business?

From those lists, thank about the areas that you need to create systems for

this is a list of instructions

  • for example:
  • I do a FB live
  • download that video onto my computer
  • then upload the video to folder in dropbox
  • ny va the
