In some of my business coaching assignments I have noticed opportunities to make some relatively low risk changes to achieve some big results. However another thing being a business coach has taught me is that small business owners are, by nature, the last to relinquish control, making outsourcing tricky business.
Avoid the typical rookie outsourcing mistakes made by many business owners.
Realise the difference between projects and outsourcing; think building a website vs. managing a website.
For simplicity’s sake, look into automation in lieu of outsourcing.
Don’t outsource what you can't take on - outsourcing requires management - and can actually create more work.
Outsource projects you can manage, but delegating for expertise or skill-related reasons.
