A plant-based business lesson about outsourcing…
I’m rubbish at keeping plants alive. I only have to be within a metre of a plant for it to start wilting and giving up on life. The only caveat to this is the Peace Lily. The Peace Lily is kind enough to let me know when it’s thirsty and it seems to thrive almost anywhere in my house. The other day though, I noticed that the tips of some of the leaves are turning brown, and because I’m me, it made me think about the rejuvenation of self and then our relationships with our businesses and outsourcing.
Y’see, the magnificent Peace Lily is obviously relinquishing those lower leaves to make way for the beautiful, crisp, new leaves up top. It’s shedding its skin so to speak, making way for a more luscious, greener self, showing us just what it’s capable of. It’s true beauty. Leaving behind the tired and worn to make way for the best version of itself.
You can do the same for your relationship with your business. So, if you find that you’re
- spending your time doing all the stuff you have to do and
- not having enough time left over to do the things you want to do, the things that you KNOW will help your business move on and thrive
then maybe it’s time to think about outsourcing.
Outsourcing the work you know is necessary, but that you actually hate doing, will inject a whole new lease of life into your relationship with your business. It will free not only your time but your outlook.
Your to-do list will no longer be filled with admin, it could be filled with client meetings and lunches, or you could finally make good on that promise you made to yourself when you first started and find that elusive work-life balance you craved.
Outsourcing is Queen and once you make the decision to give yourself a bit of a break and hire someone to support you and your business, you’ll spend the rest of your days wondering how on earth you ever did it all by yourself!
