- yes, I agree that businesses need to delegate what they can for further growth when the timing is right. I've seen MANY solo-preneurs delegate too soon and end up spending money they didn't have simply because they didn't have a clear understanding of what they needed to delegate v. what could be streamlined with solid systems/processes. In my business, I've found that the best solution has been to hire help on a project basis. For instance, I hired an infusionsoft specialist to help me build out my launch funnel. Once the funnel was set in place, I didn't need to do anything to manage it. Another example is building out my membership site- It was just a one-time project that I hired someone to do. So, in these cases I 'delegated' work out. As a solo-preneur, I've tried having a part-time VA, but found that the work I would have handed over to her, really needed to be done by me. For example, my social media engagement. I'm a huge believer that you can't outsource relationships, so I've created my own systems and processes that I use to cultivate authentic engagement with my audience. While a lot of businesses delegate this work to a VA, I've found that it's not in my best interest as a small business owner who depends on building relationships to build my business to do this 'work' myself. So again, I completely agree with you -- I just think that there's more to delegation than just getting someone to help you. Strategically building your business means planning for the times that you need to delegate. And delegating also requires some strategic planning.
