The first thing I'm going to outsource when I start making money?

11 replies
There are a gazillion tasks to be done each day. Plates spinning all over the place and the stress of keeping them all up there and there's always more to learn and something else to read...

It makes for long days and nights and I'm ecstatic to do it because it's MY business, I'm the boss of me and secretly I'd still be happy if I didn't make any money. I mean, within reason.

But what I can't wait to outsource is housework! The garbage is going to stink if not taken out no matter how many articles still need to be written. If you want to eat healthy food, you have to cook it yourself rather than buy from Ronald and his ilk.

If you have someone in your house who takes care of even a portion of the household stuff, do something today to show them your appreciation because I'm about to go handles some things I've been neglecting so that if the doorbell rings I don't have to pretend I'm not at home.

    Andy Jenkins has a great blog post on this - an old webinar he split up you can view...

    I would outsource anything that's not M.E.S. (Marketing, Experience and Systems)

    I am right there with you! I would much rather be working than cleaning the house! I have 2 kids ages 4 & 6 that make terrible messes. I'm content to just work among clutter because I love what I do so much. But if I ever get to the point I make enough money I'm hiring a cleaning service!

    LOL Lynn!

    Considering I opened this thinking you were going to say something like "I'm going to find someone on Fiverr to post blog comment spam all over the place," or "I'm going to pay someone to mass submit spun articles to thousands of directories that no one's ever heard of," I got a big laugh out of your post

    It's funny... we're all business owners, yet when the cat makes a mess in the litter box, we're nothing more than maids

    PS - this:

    Nothing more than maids? I am also a baby sitter and a dog poo picker upper. With kids and pets at home I get distracted more than I can work....but that is for a whole other thread

    I ignore most of the mess in my place, so it keeps me from wanting a housekeeper.
    But I'm one who has to clean up after the dog, but I still love him.

    I was just thinking about going on Craigslist and seeing if I can find someone to do some of the yard work. Hopefully I can find someone that isn't crazy haha

      Hey, I'll share a multi-tasking secret:

      - when I pick up the phone, I pick up my dust rag or lamb's wool feather duster and work while I network


      There are other tasks you can work in there like this, too - - folding laundry, taking care of pets, etc.

      So plan more phone networking / consulting / chats...money-making opps

    I'd like to outsource the backlinking tasks.
    They tend to be tedious and repetitive.
