Knowing when it’s time to outsource in your business can be a hard decision. I know because I’ve been there. It’s hard to trust your baby that you’ve built with someone else. But part of growing your brand includes knowing when it’s time to seek help. Deciding who to hire first or where you may even need help, to begin with, can be challenging. That’s where someone like me comes in! Hiring a business strategist can help you take a good look at your business and focus on areas of growth and those that need improvement.
A business strategist can help you decide who your first hire should be or even parts of your business that aren’t serving you well and you should let go. A business strategist is different than a business coach, although some coaches help with strategy. Where a business coach may focus more on mindset, shifting perspectives, and idea generation and manifestation, a business strategist is going to help you create goals, action plans, organization, and automation. Here’s how you know it may be time to hire a business strategist:
✔️ You’re shifting the focus of your business
Maybe you’ve decided to niche down or you’re doing what a lot of business owners have been doing and pivoting to something else. Maybe your ideal client has changed or you’re trying to add in a different market than you’ve marketed to in the past. A business strategist will help you narrow in a focus down on what your big picture goal is a create a plan for how to move forward.
✔️ You can’t see a clear path ahead
You have a never-ending to-do list where nothing seems to get accomplished. Or you seem to be spending time doing a lot of the “busy work” that happens behind the scenes and can’t seem to find time to focus on what you really love. A business strategist is going to help you create systems, automation, and workflows to streamline your business, mark off those to-dos, and get back to the business part of your brand.
✔️ You’re overwhelmed and burned out
You’ve reached the dreaded “B” word – burnout. You’re super frustrated, there’s too much on your plate, clients are getting on your nerves, and you’re not even sure you want to continue your business anyway. A business strategist can help you work smarter, not harder so you can have a healthy work-life balance that minimizes the chances of burnout and gives you time back to refresh and recharge.
✔️ You need someone to hold you accountable
Not everyone has an internal motivation. Sometimes we need that outside push! Maybe you have a ton of ideas, but you need some guidance on how to execute them. A business strategist will help you create a game plan and hold you accountable so you can turn those ideas into moneymakers.
✔️ Your business isn’t growing
You’ve been doing all the things, but you aren’t seeing any growth. You need a different perspective to start gaining more clients and making more sales. Let’s make a plan to get you there!
