Today, many of us wear many hats. It can be a blessing and a curse when work comes in in all of the lines of business you engage in. The question many people ask themselves is “How can I keep this up without hiring someone to fill a less than full-time job?”
Sometimes, it just makes sense to hire an intern or someone to do some freelance work on an as needed basis to help you manage your workload. I recently decided to bring on some outside help to work with me on a freelance basis to handle some of the workload, whether it be correspondence, updates for clients, or other jobs that may be a little more than I can handle. By allowing myself to delegate some work, I am able to focus more on building my brand and also am able to take on more work.
What strategies have you employed to delegate without hiring a full-time employee?
