610 Susan Fennema : Eradicating Chaos
How to Beat Perfectionism, Start Delegating, and Scale Your Business
After almost 30 years founding and growing businesses and mentoring other female founders, I’ve come to the conclusion there should be an “AA” for perfectionists.
We can all get so caught up in this idea of perfectionism that we fail to delegate even the most menial tasks. It’s a trap that prevents most women from scaling their businesses to a million and beyond, and leaves us overwhelmed and spent.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
What if there was a way to delegate tasks and know that your team will get them done exactly the way you want?
It would be transformational right?
I remember a mentor asking me what my hourly rate would be if I was landing a major contract, creating valuable IP, or bringing in a major investor – as opposed to what I would pay someone to fix a broken link, schedule calls, or for that matter do my laundry. Think about it. If an hour of my work brought in, say $50,000, my hourly rate would be at least $5000. Now what would it cost me to pay someone to fix that broken link? $25? $50?
When we think we’re heroes for “doing it all” we’re actually short changing our businesses – and ourselves. It creates chaos, slows your growth, and stands in the way of scale.
Today on Wings we talk about how you can balance your perfectionist urge with delegation, and what tools can help you control the chaos in your business.
