My favorite accountant friend's tag line for his customers is "You do what you do best, and let me take care of the numbers." Think about it. How much time do you waste trying to figure out something that someone else could do for you in a moment? I know, I know. You are trying to save money. But are you really saving money? How much is your time worth to you? $30 an hour? $50 an hour? $10 an hour? When you really think about it, you could have paid someone a fraction of the cost you would have paid yourself considering the amount of time it took to complete that task. And in the end, the product is only half good because you are not an expert in it.
Two main areas that come to mind when I think of outsourcing that we are not experts in but spin our wheels trying to do it ourselves are accounting and online marketing. If you are struggling to do an adequate job in those areas, consider hiring others to do them for you. EHoodCleaner can manage your online marketing campaign at our expense, and you only pay us commission if we send you a legitimate lead. Our friend, The Accounting Department, can work with you to manage your accounting functions to whatever degree you'd like help at a reasonable price.
Save yourself some time, money, and hassle. Outsource.
