Delegate More; Work Less

Think back to when you first started your contracting business.

What did you want out of life?

Did you want to work 80 hours a week? Or to stress over payroll? Did you get excited about having to wait two weeks to pay yourself because your clients didn’t pay on time?

Of course not!

Nobody goes into business for themselves, hoping to work more hours for less money. 

And yet, that’s what many contractors end up doing. 

One reason for this?

They don’t know how to delegate.

Your 3-Step Guide to Delegating:

If you want to stop working at all hours of the day and night and start living the dream you envisioned when you went into business for yourself, you need to learn how to delegate.

These three steps will get you started.

1. Don’t take on all the work yourself

Sure, you can do everything in your business. But that doesn’t mean you should.

Figure out what tasks and responsibilities can be done by someone else, then hand them over. This frees you up to work on the things you enjoy and excel at.

2. Build a team that doesn’t need to be micromanaged

Hire people who don’t need you to hold their hands as they do their jobs. You need to hand a task to someone else and forget about it. 

3. Invest in training employees

Spending time training employees is well worth the effort in the long run. That’s the only way you’ll be able to hand over tasks without needing to constantly check in or take over.

Once you start delegating, you’ll realize how much more you can get done to move your business forward.  This can only create success!
