In almost any arena of personal and professional life, there are certain services that are meant to be done by an expert.
New homeowners often tackle things like their 1/2 acre lawn because they can spend a $150 on a lawn mower and then over the first couple of months, pay for that investment with simply their two hours of lawn mowing on Saturday morning or an evening after work.
Years pass, the job gets more involved or kids come along and time becomes more important than saving $30-$50 per week.
The difficult part of this is often the belief that you should still do it on your own. It isn’t that you don’t have the money to pay a professional, it is the mental struggle to over come “I can do that.”
I know how to do a lot of things, like change the oil in my car, sheetrock and spackle, paint, rotate tires, mow the lawn (obviously, I have to mention that one) but certain services are just not on my list (or my husband’s) to do any more. In business, a few of my favorites to “outsource” are bookkeeping, accounting, copy & printing, and payroll. Think about what you’re doing now, that would be better suited to having someone else do it for you.
