Priority Pursuit


Apr 20, 2022

054. Do you have too much on your plate? Can you simply not get everything done? Or, would you like to just work less? 

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, my friend, chances are, it’s time to outsource something in your business. 

Now, I know what you’re going to say. “Outsourcing isn’t an option for me. Nobody can do __ like I can.” 

However, friend, the reality is (1) you cannot grind and do everything in your business forever and expect to grow, and (2) there are things on your to-do list that can be done by others. And, I know you hate to hear this, but chances are, there are things on your plate that can be done better and more efficiently by others. 

With this in mind, in this episode of Priority Pursuit, we’re discussing how to successfully outsource tasks in your small business. And, because I’m a photographer and I know that there are several photographers listening, I’m going to explain how I outsource editing with Photographer’s Edit to give us an example to work with. 

The steps we discuss in this episode include:

  1. Determine what you truly can & can’t outsource. 
  2. Create SOPs for the project or task you want to outsource (AKA establish your editing style). 
  3. Decide who you’re going to outsource this task to.
  4. Provide examples.
  5. Give feedback & allow the contractor who did the work to make corrections.
  6. Anticipate that a few changes will need to be made.
  7. Enjoy having more time on your hands!
