Outsourcing is a huge piece of the business puzzle. It can be scary if you are afraid of giving up control, or are worried you can’t afford to hire someone. Imagine for a minute if you didn’t have to handle the tedious tasks. What would you do with that time? Could you reach out to clients and book an extra show? Create a new program to market? Do something to improve your program or, even take some time off to recharge so you can work more efficiently?
