Why Doing It Yourself IS Sometimes Easier

Building systems and delegating is the only way to grow, but sometimes doing everything yourself in your business is actually easier.

How many times have you said to yourself, “I can do it faster myself,” or “No one can do it as well as I can?” A colleague recently told me, “I would hire, but it’s so much faster when I just do it myself.”

You’ve probably heard it a million times that you need to build a team and get help in order to grow your business further and scale.

But honestly, sometimes it is easier to do it yourself rather than getting help and delegating it because you can stay in control. You know exactly what the outcome is and you can push it out and get it done.

However, if you’ve…

… never created systems, it can feel like a time suck and ANOTHER hurdle to growing your business.
… never had a team before, you probably don’t have the systems or processes to be successful with them.
… never had a good experience with team members, you probably don’t trust anyone to do a better job than you.

In these situations, it probably IS easier for you to do it all yourself, but know this:

1) You won’t be able to grow your business any further, because there’s only so much time in the day for you to do ALL the things.
2) You won’t make more money because you are at capacity. Maybe your waitlist grows longer and longer, but your revenue levels stay exactly the same.
3) You won’t go on vacation or take a day off without feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or like you’re going to miss something super important unless you check your email constantly.

Way too often, the missing ingredient is someone to show you how your business can operate with a team: how easy it can be when you have the right systems and tools in place. Plus, how much more control and freedom you can have with a trained team in place, sending you status updates so you are NOT managing them constantly.

Yes, you can do everything yourself.

But, if you want to grow a bigger business, live by your own rules, and have a greater impact in the world, you need a team and you need systems.

If you’re done trying to build every system yourself – and you want to level up your business and live by your own rules – then you might be a fit for my Upleveled Entrepreneur service.
