The Fears of Outsourcing in a Virtual World …

Outsourcing can be a scary endeavor. When you have never done it before … or if you have and have been burned in the past, it can be a hard pill to swallow as an online entrepreneur. We often buy into the lie that nobody can do it like we can and quite honestly … I want you to take your fear head-on with me today so you can outsource successfully!

The biggest thing you can do to overcome your fear of outsourcing is to change your mindset toward it and try it!

~ Drew Duboff from Start Scaling Successfully

While we have already listed one fear, here are some other fears that we as entrepreneurs living in a strong virtual world right now, tend to buy into when it comes to outsourcing …

  1. The person I am hiring will not produce as much success as I would if I did the work.
    This is 100% a mindset issue. Oftentimes, we buy into “the hustle” mentality without even realizing how toxic it truly is. Most entrepreneurs think the more they hustle, the more success they will have. However, this commonly leads to burnout, lack of focus and productivity, and pure frustration which then leaves them doing #AllTheThings all by themselves. (Even though someone else could be doing them!)

  2. It will cost too much to hire someone to do the work.
    This is a common issue for some business owners and the fix is truly a simple one …. Do the math to see how much you would need assistance with, in order to maintain your profit margins while hiring someone to do the work. You will find that by adding someone to your team, you will not only increase you growth and productivity levels, but also your profitability as you will be able to maximize your time more effectively.

  3. I don’t know how to manage another person — or if I can trust them.
    This is truly a common issue and one we’ve struggled with ourselves. Your business is your baby and you want everything to be “perfect” and sometimes it’s hard to find someone who will take you and your business seriously all the while sharing the same passion for the same end-result goals. But a lot of this can be solved by hiring the right person. When you hire a professional (or a starter who has amazing experience and wants to continue with professional growth) who is a self-motivator and doesn’t need a lot of hand-holding, it is easier to manage work alongside them as opposed to someone who is constantly in a reactive state. Even if you have never managed someone – or an entire team — before in the past, oftentimes you simply just need to have an open line of communication for it all to work … For everyone!

Well, there you have it! The TOP THREE most common fears when it comes to outsourcing in this crazy big – and ever-growing – virtual world in which we live.

Despite these being common fears, they truly are all about mindset. You see, the right freelancers won’t cause these fears to come to life. And you truly won’t know until you try it for yourself!

Crystal is an artist, a writer, an organizer, a dreamer, a doer, and down-right proud of it NERD!.

Struck with a love for #AllThings creative at a very young age, Crystal dreamed of a life fueled by her passion for creating and bringing the stories and images in her mind into reality.

As she worked toward her dreams, she earned a diploma as a Computer Applications Specialist then another in Graphic Design and from there began to develop her extensive background in multimedia and the arts. She began her worked in the magazine industry as a layout designer and had a succession of design jobs thereafter. It was her role as a graphic/web designer that gave her the first real glimpse of her future. Soon she began a side job as a freelance designer while keeping one foot in the corporate world. A spark was lit! She turned her freelance gig into a full-time business combining design work with her other passion: creating organization from virtual chaos.

Crystal is one of the most organized individuals on the planet. She is by all means a Zen master of her crafts. She excels at helping others become “untangled” and provides her clients with tools to run their businesses smoothly while she takes care of the details behind the scenes. Thus Virtually Untangled was born. A successful business where her work as a top notch creative in graphic and web — with a twist of virtual assistant — married into one amazing place where clients can come with their virtual messes and become magically untangled. Crystal can always make sense of even the most unorganized chaos and offers a virtual detox of order and peace, so her clients can get busy doing the work that they love the most.
