Busy? Us, too. That’s why we’re going to keep this short. Here are some of our best ideas on how to get stuff done when you can’t clone yourself…yet.
Delegate on the Job: Find an Expert
Are you trying to be the office superhero, taking on too many roles and leaving yourself less-than-ideal time to run your business? If so, it’s time to delegate. Maybe you’re attempting to take on SEO for your company, or maybe you’ve spent countless hours making updates to your website. Why not free your time by hiring an expert to help? Upwork is a global network of freelancers and agencies who are ready to help with your next job. Hire a virtual assistant for those administrative duties, a web developer to get your website up to speed, or even someone to explain and set up your Google Analytics—it’s all possible with Upwork. Of course, if you’d like some help with your email marketing, we’re here for you.
Delegate at Home: Duplicate Yourself
What’s your favorite thing to do—stand in line to get a permit, drop off donations, mount a TV, or assemble furniture? None of the above? Same here. These are all sometimes necessary, yet tedious tasks that suck valuable time out of a day. Why not employ a company like Task Rabbit to do your busy work for you? “Taskers” do all these things and so much more (they’ll even deliver mannequins to events, if that’s your thing). Just describe your task, choose your tasker, and pay when it’s done. Instant relief!
And if you’re anything like us when it comes to cooking dinner, check out Freshly.com. They take it one step beyond meal-kit subscriptions that require assembly and cooking by delivering already prepared dinners right to your door! All you have to do is heat them up. Choose your selection of meals from Freshly’s weekly rotation, and start enjoying delicious, chef-cooked meals.
Delegate and done! Now doesn’t that feel good?
