How to know when it's time to outsource

Knowing when it’s time to outsource as a wedding and event professional can be difficult. It can vary from person to person. Maybe your business bestie has been outsourcing for years but you don’t feel quite ready.

I’m here to help break it all down and help you know when it’s time to outsource as a wedding & event professional.

Three Ways To Know When It’s Time to Outsource

1. When You’ve reached Burnout

It may be an obvious one but we don’t become business owners with the intention to get overly stressed and reach burnout. Sometimes it takes months or even years of being a people pleaser to realize you’ve already gotten there. 

If you are feeling overly stressed, overwhelmed or unsure about how you can keep going on the way you are, most likely you’ve reached burnout. We are in a people-pleasing industry, there is no doubt about it. But at what point do you stop saying yes to things? When you have to start saying no in your personal life?

I want to help you BEFORE you get to this point. I myself have had to recover from burnout and it takes a community to lean on and a support network to get you back to a healthy routine.

2. When you are having to choose which tasks take priority & some tasks are taking the hit in your biz

During wedding season it can be hard at times to prioritize all of your couples and certain tasks. Especially during a global health pandemic when you have 3 years of couples who you are trying to provide a luxury experience to.

When you are having to prioritize one-off tasks over reoccurring tasks and are unable to keep up with the basic BTS responsibilities of your business it is time to call in some help. You shouldn’t have to let some tasks take a hit over others in order to thrive.

3. You’re spending a lot of time on tasks you could delegate

As a business owner, you DO NOT have to do it all. Let me repeat that you DO NOT have to do it all and you DO NOT have to do it alone. 

If you find yourself spending too much time on small tasks that are not in your zone of genius it’s time to ask yourself, can this be delegated?

Do you absolutely, without a doubt have to do the task? Can you do it better than everyone else? OR, if you could outsource to an expert who specializes in the tasks would you? You deserve to have an expert handle your business!
