Whether beginning the entrepreneurial journey as a solopreneur or initially launching with a full Team, delegating effectively is quite possibly one of the biggest challenges for Business Owners.
As your business grows, so do the demands on your time, energy and focus. The increasing demands become overwhelming and a need for change becomes obvious; however, you're stuck in the daily grind keeping the business afloat and see no way out. At some point the stress is too much, and you realize that you cannot be all, to all, at all times.
Delegating effectively enables a Business Owner to lighten their load and ultimately, step away from the daily grind and work ON the business, not just IN it. The paradox lies in first mastering the art of effective delegation, before freedom can be attained.
Before I dive into my tips on how to effectively delegate, I'll share some common objections that prevent Clients from delegating in the first place:
If you answered YES to either of those questions, I can help because I've been there. Based on my own experience as an Entrepreneur AND loads of trial and error...
1. First things first: clarify the task, expectations and desired outcome in detail
2. Next: supplement the "what you DO want" with clarification on "what you DON'T want"
3. Always: open the conversation up for Q&A before allowing them to fully dive into the task/project
4. Be Sure To: check in to receive regular progress reports and status updates
One last thing to keep in mind, the person(s) to whom you've delegated WANTS to succeed, so be sure to over-communicate throughout the process so they can have a WIN and OWN the next task/project with confidence and enthusiasm.
Follow these tips. NOTICE the results you get. And as always, let me know how it goes.

P.S. This photo is from one of the first BIG weddings my Team at Branching Out Events did 100% independently without me! From the initial consultation & the overall event design to the actual production & installation- they NAILED IT! What did I do? I supported them throughout the process with Q&A, training and feedback. Then on the day of the wedding, I walked into that ballroom and acknowledged, recognized and PRAISED all their hard work, dedication and resilience! It was a proud moment, for all involved!
I'll share information that may be a good reminder (the stuff you already know) or just may blow your mind (the new, perspective-shifting, really valuable stuff).
I'll also share updates and launches on my newest programs and workshops, so you'll want to be first to know!
I look forward to helping you GROW!
