Outsource – In Town
There has been a lot of talk about supporting local businesses. These small companies are truly the back bone of our country. We are the “Mom and Pop” or “solopreneurs” trying to make it on our own. So when you are looking to make changes or need some help, remember to check locally first. Even in our small town, there is a plethora of opportunity and talent to tap in to. Plus, it opens the door for reciprocity, aka, bartering. Given how tight budgets have been the last few years, what better way to develop what you need than by helping another small business showcase what they need?
Outsourcing work that you would normally do for yourself can free you up to focus on growing your business. Perhaps you despise editing documents or making calls or you really aren’t so good at compiling data or managing your time. By handing over small projects that are not your forte, you are helping a neighbor and improving the product you provide. This improvement comes in the form of better quality because more attention has been put into it and it is the result of a compilation of work done by several experts – not just one trying to do it all.
The next time you are looking to complete a project and realize that you might do well to have a little help, give it a try and outsource – in town!
