Would you hire yourself?

Think about it:

If you are in business, you are not only your own boss, you are also your own employee.

Would you hire yourself for the job? Would you feel that you are the best match for the the tasks that the job requires?

In some cases, the answer is clearly “YES!”

Hopefully, your focus, your story and your passion to do what you are doing qualify you to excell in your business.

But how about the things you are not so passionate about?

How about marketing?


Making phone calls?

How about the online part of your business, the graphic design?

Do you have the experience to be your own business coach?

Do you have the vision to know exactly what the next steps need to be?

Do you have the time to write your articles, post things on twitter and facebook?

OR do these activities take away from the time you need to move your business forward?

If you wouldn’t hire yourself for specific tasks, then you have to make a decision:

Either work hard and learn the skills you need to excell, or

Outsource the problems as quickly as possible.


For some first time entrepreneurs, especially coaches and healers, the answer seems to be a bit more complex, because you might believe you don’t have the financing to pay someone else to do a job for you.

But is this true?

Think about how much energy you lose trying to learn skills that you don’t feel passionate about.

Think about how you could spend a Saturday afternoon teaching a class or coaching a client instead of learning how to create your blog header.

Imagine how much money you want to make per hour, and see the time you invest into leearning your skills as money you invest into your business.

If you don’t outsource what you are clearly not the dream candidate for, you basically state to the Universe that you have no intention to get started with your business rightaway.

You tell the Universe that you feel it is more important to focus on what you don’t know than what you do know.

You spend a good portion of your life dealing with what you don’t love, and allowing the frustration to sidetrack you from serving those that need your unique skill set and gifts to move forward in their lives.


When you look at it that way: How can you NOT afford to outsource what you don’t love or are sufficiently good at?

Please leave some feedback below!

Until Tomorrow!

Much Love

    I’m happy to say that I probably would. It was a very thought provoking question.
