You may now be, or may eventually be at, a point where you’re slammed and you just can’t take on more projects as a solo-preneur. When you get to that point, you have 2 options:
You can raise your rates significantly and lessen the amount of projects/clients you have since you’re more in demand or…
You can start delegating by hiring subcontractors to assist with your workload
Having done both options, I can say in full confidence that option 2 is much more fulfilling, fun and scalable!
In this episode, I give you my top 10 tips and most impactful advice for when you’re ready to start hiring subcontractors for your web design business.
And the good news is, we’re not talking about bringing on full time employees, payroll, tax implications, etc. We’re simply talking about how to delegate the tasks in your business that are draining, taking a lot of your time or are repeated that someone else can assist with.
Even if you’re not at this point yet in your business, I still highly recommend listening to this episode so you’ll be prepared for what to do when you DO get to this point!
