Do you have a hard time outsourcing the things you LOVE in business? You aren’t alone. Today I want to help you to give yourself permission to outsource the things you love in business in order to free up more of your own time. It can be hard to give up those things you love because it is like handing off your baby.
But here are a few reasons why it is okay to outsource those things you love. It is natural to be a perfectionist which will oftentimes lead to spending too much time on a project trying to get it just right. You end up spending so much time investing in something that could be hindering your growth. It is also easier to remove yourself from the outcome when you outsource. Sometimes we tend to take things a little too personal when it doesn’t turn out as we envisioned.
Now, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when you are beginning to outsource tasks. It is important to nurture the person you are outsourcing things to and remember where you started. They will not do it exactly like you and there may be some mistakes in the beginning but that’s okay. It is a learning process. You have to allow time for error and corrections. Give examples and share HONEST feedback.
Photography is an easy thing to outsource when you are first looking to outsource something in your business. Many people outsource their photography to me and here are a few reasons why. My process has been perfected to capture the key things you are looking for. I am thorough when creating images and my clients understand that. I also have good communication with those I work with. A good, honest, and trusting relationship is a MUST and that is accomplished through good, open, and efficient communication.

Corporate America had me at hello for 10 years. And just when I thought I was where I was supposed to be, God changed the narrative and helped me find more time for my husband and two beautiful girls through my own photography business. Now, I live for all things styled photography and serving the business community exclusively through styled imagery and personal brand photography.
