Creative Outsourcing to Scale Faster

Female Founders Breaking Boundaries

Jul 28 2022 • 48 mins


If you’re feeling like your team doesn’t know what they’re doing, are doing the wrong things, or need constant supervision, the problem may not be your delegation systems but rather your hiring. This week’s episode 65 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is about creative outsourcing to scale faster!

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing the importance of hiring with purpose and not just to fill the role as quickly as possible and actionable steps you can take right now to creatively outsource for more revenue, lower expenses, increased efficiency and reaching your goals faster. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Jolene Delisle, founder of The Working Assembly for offering pro bono branding services to four independent shop owners every year so they can compete with bigger companies and stay in business.
  • Reasons why your current hiring plan is not working for your business.
  • Knowing where you want your business to be, finding the gaps to get you there, and using an accountability chart to fill those gaps.
  • Getting creative by leveraging part-time employees, freelancers, agencies, and consultants to scale without the commitment of a full-time employee.
  • Knowing the right time to outsource.
  • My deep thoughts on the actual impact of protesting versus having conversations and pouring into resources that are making a difference.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of tools, advice, resources, support, and encouragement that resonates with the modern businesswoman and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
