#007 Grow Your Business by Getting Rid of Tasks

If I could, I would delegate my life.

After my burn out, I spent HOURS learning about delegation. My mentor told me about it, told me I needed help, but never explained how to find it or how to train and actually delegate. My doctor kept telling me I needed to unload my schedule and make my life less stressful. Basically, delegation is necessary, but can be SO hard for any business owner!

You may be thinking, well I can’t afford to hire someone. Do you know how much the service cost? How much time or money are they costing you? Can your business afford a burnout? If hiring someone for a few dollars will skyrocket your business, would you do it?

David mentions that not delegating is like running your business looking at your feet. Then when you look up you are hitting a wall of either financial struggle or burnout. A few hours a day or a few tasks weekly that can free up your time may be worth looking into a Virtual Assistant for or finding services like the ones featured below to free up some time!

There are so many different ways to delegate “easy stuff” in your life. Below is a list of services I use to delegate tasks I can live without doing!

  1. UberEATS – Pick up take out
    • Use my code to get $5 off your first order: eats-megang3375ue
  2. Instacart – Grocery Shop
  3. Mynt – Car Wash
  4. HootSuite – Posting on Social Media Consistently
  5. Chewy – Auto Ordering Pet Food
  6. Uber – Driving LOL
    • Use my code to get $5 off your first order: eats-megang3375ue
  7. Thrive Market – Healthy Foods (they have automation)

Other ways you can automate, that I don’t use

  1. Hiring Cleaners – I actually enjoy this if we follow the Guide to Unwind method of a little cleaning each day.
  2. Fill your gas tank
  3. Grocery Store Automated Shipping
  4. Care.com – I was a nanny on here in college and found an AMAZING family I worked for, for years. They still use girls from my sorority – for mostly driving the kids around now!
  5. Rover – I am hesitant to share this because I would never hire someone to walk my dogs because they are a handful and Baby gets overly excited with little dogs.
  6. Call Centers – that answer and have a call log for your business
  7. Service Providers (tax professional, virtual assistant, marketing, social media, website, IT people, etc.)
  8. Laundry services

A tip that I revisit every 90 days is to write down a list of everything I do and make sure to add everything you hate.

  • If you have an assistant or someone to delegate tasks to – make videos (I have an example in the FREE Virtual Assistant Course at the bottom)
  • If you do not have someone and do not want to hire – look for a service. Go to Google, look for a service and one of my FAVORITE new tricks is to wait a couple days after visiting a service provider’s site (make sure you are signed into facebook on your computer) and. They find you now! I have hired, purchased, or looked into companies I found this way.
