For years I knew how important it was to outsource, hire an assistant, and not try to do everything myself. I've been preaching this to my clients for years because in theory I knew that "doing everything yourself keeps your business at a small size that you can manage." It's a funny irony. I wanted my business to be larger, have more income streams and I also wanted to have a team. The theory was correct. The trick was how to turn that theory into practice. Some years back I began by hiring various personal assistants to help me with projects.
