I wanted to talk to you today about delegating and leveraging more in your business.

When I talk to entrepreneurs about delegating, many of them tune me out. Why? Because they are doing it all themselves!!!!

For those of you who are doing it all yourself, STOP!

Let me share some ideas with you on why you would WANT to delegate. Some of you may have tried to delegate before and maybe it didn’t work out well. I get that. You see, I’ve been delegating for about 14 years in my business and in the beginning, I didn’t know what I was doing. I made so many mistakes like hiring the wrong people, micro-managing projects that I had assigned to them, or I re-did work that they performed for me.

I had to learn from my mentors and others that I hired HOW to delegate effectively. Many entrepreneurs are not experts in HR or how to train an independent contractor.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know how to delegate effectively now. But you need to learn how to if you want to leverage your business. If you are a business owner, you need to have someone to help.

What will happen if you get sick or if medical issues arise?

What will you do when you want to take a vacation?

If you don’t have a team, you will not be able to make money when unforeseen contingencies come up. I have had some clients tell me that they’ve never taken a vacation the entire time they’ve been in business – for several years!

Listen up! Life is too short and as an entrepreneur, you need to have some fun. You need to have some down time (a vacation).

You have to embrace delegating.

Unless you have a brick and mortar store or location and where you need to hire employees, most business owners can use the services of independent contractors called Virtual Assistants.

Click here to learn more about what you need to know once you’ve decided “It’s Time You Started Delegating”

So PLEASE – Stop Waiting To Delegate! You need to know the BIG PICTURE of all of the strategies you need in your business. But you don’t need to know or spend your time learning how to do all of the things you need to do in your business.

I’ve created a Checklist that includes over 40 tasks or activities you could potentially delegate and should consider outsourcing to a Virtual Assistant or to a person other than YOU. Take a look at this Checklist to see what’s possible. Copy it into a Word document, then add tasks or activities that are specific to what you do in your business or delete the things that are not applicable to your business.

I also share in this free report info on what your next steps should be, where to find the people you need, how to get them in place, etc. Just go to JumpstartYourTeam.com to get your copy. It’s FREE!

Today I want to talk to you about my book, “Love Yourself Successful” and specifically about what’s in my book – The Four Types of Love. These Four Types of Love can affect how much money you are making in your business.

These topics are top of mind for me right now because I’m preparing for my Live Event on November 3, 4, & 5th, 2016 called “Love & Money LIVE”. Check out the video because I’m also offering a coupon code at the end for those of you who are interested in attending.

are you focusing on LOVE in your businessMost of the time, I find that it’s my female clients or friends who are not focusing enough on LOVE in their business. So I wanted to emphasize that to make money, you have to make sure you are focusing on all of the revenue-producing activities. If you are not putting that focus on revenue-producing activities because you are not getting the LOVE or SUPPORT that you need, please listen closely because this message is for you.

The Four Types of Love you Need to Focus on

Love for Your Self: this area includes loving yourself first and taking care of yourself. It includes knowing your worth.

Love with a Significant Other: make sure the significant other in your life or the one you are looking for is the person who will be very supportive for what you are doing. This is very important for entrepreneurs because they take more risks.

Love in Your Environment: this includes negative family members or friends – negative influencers. Some people are toxic to your environment. They will try to make you feel like what your doing in your business is not important. You have to be able to communicate differently with them and keep them at a distance until you can turn them around to be more supportive.

Love for What you are Doing: do you wake up excited about what you are doing? If not, you are not going to make a lot of money. You have to love what you are doing and if not, think about doing something different.

Check out the video below for more detail about Focusing Enough on LOVE in Your Business!

Video Biz Tip: Are You Focusing Enough on LOVE in Your Business?!

You can learn more about these topics in my book, “Love Yourself Successful” and you can buy your copy on my website. Just go to LoveYourselfSucessful.com to get your copy. Or you get a free audio and a couple of free chapters of the book on that page, if you’d like to sample it first.

It is THE PERFECT event for you if you know you need to work on some of these areas that I’ve just discussed in this post AND you are not making the money that you need to in your business.

The subject of what to delegate to an Assistant or Virtual Assistant was a topic that several members of my Live Big Mastermind wanted to discuss with me recently.  The topic came up again during our bi-weekly group call in my Mastermind this week.

It appears to be a HOT topic, so I thought I should be sharing some tips about it with you today!   I’m also including a juicy FREE resource at this end of this video so make sure you pick that up while you are here.  And now, here are my Tips:

What Types of Tasks Should You Delegate to an Assistant

when & how to delegate to an assistant or VAYou have to figure out the types of tasks you need to delegate first.  For example, do you need someone to do technology-type tasks?  If you do, they will need to have experience doing those types of tasks which is very different from someone you might hire to make phone calls for you to generate leads, follow up with leads, book speaking gigs and things like that.   Once you’ve determined your types of tasks, you may find that you need more than just one person – you may need multiple people who can perform different types of tasks.

Most people need at least two people when they start out.  You don’t pay more, you just split the time that you are paying for between the two people.  You also have to find out what types of tasks the person is experienced doing and what they love to do before hiring them.  Interviewing prospective virtual assistants is KEY to making sure you get someone who is really good at the type of task you need them to do.

Reasons Why You Need to Start Delegating Now

Why do I delegate in the first place?  Because I love taking a three day weekend with my family, going to events, and I like not having to worry about what’s been done when I’m away at speaking events.  My team takes care of those things for me.  Wouldn’t you like this kind of freedom?  Delegating allows me to take a real vacation where I’m not working while on the beach.  It also allows me to do more to reach more people so I can make more money!!!  And You Can Too!

Check out the video below for more detail about How and What to Delegate to an Assistant or VA to Save YOU Time!

Video Biz Tip: How and What to Delegate to an Assistant or VA to Save YOU Time!

I’m offering a **FREE** checklist of the types of tasks you need to start delegating. These are 43 things that I’ve found have come up in my business over the past 14 years where I needed to delegate the tasks to an assistant. It’s a great list to start with to give you some ideas. It has helped my clients see areas where an assistant would be beneficial. Of course, there will be some things that might not apply to where you are in your business at this time, but you can use them later on.

So make sure you pick up my checklist. You’ll find it on my Live Big Events website, (where you’ll also get information about my live events). Go to: Livebigevents.com/delegatingchecklist
