IMPORTANT: Before you edit any of the templates in Canva, create a copy for yourself and edit only your copy. Editing the original template will change the master copy for everyone attempting to use it. Once you’ve made your copy, please delete the original template from your Canva account, thank you!

Getting Out of My Comfort Zone BlogPaws 2017

Surprisingly enough, many online marketers and bloggers are introverts. We find it easier to be behind our computers communicating to an audience we cannot see. However, in order to grow our businesses, we have to venture out of our comfort zones.

Getting Out of My Comfort Zone BlogPaws 2017

I knew at some point, if I wanted to network, I’d have to step out from behind the computer. BlogPaws 2017 was the perfect opportunity for that. I had been invited to speak, so I could share my love of creating branded visual assets. The fear & anxiety was real!

The community of bloggers, marketers, and brands were incredibly inviting. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Harper Lee & Tolula from the K9 Harper Lee, along with their incredible parents.

What a pleasure to meet @thek9harperlee and Tolula, and of course their parents! What an amazing family!

Walking into the dining area, quietly looking for a place to sit, meant reverting back to my high school self. My inner thoughts battling between finding an empty table and breaking out my shell. The team from Helping Hands made me feel welcome every single time. Their business mission simply inspiring.

BlogPaws 2017 Red Carpet Dinner

The exhibit area was another mountain to overcome. Learning to introduce myself to different brands was important. Of course, it’s a great way to develop new business relationships, but mustering up the confidence was huge. They say the only way to overcome your fears is to face it. Well, BlogPaws 2017 challenged me to do just that. IT WAS WONDERFUL! Sure, it took me 2 days to finally connect in the exhibit hall, but I did it.

Plus, why not stop for a picture at the Bayer booth.

Overall, I did some “shell-busting” at the BlogPaws conference and it helped me grow in so many ways. There’s something about people and businesses who are absolutely passionate about animals.

Share your own BlogPaws experiences! I’d love to hear them.

 

Is it Time to Start Outsourcing?

Have you hit the point in your online business where you find yourself overwhelmed by managing everything on your own? We’ve all been there and it’s not easy to determine when it’s time to start outsourcing some of those necessary tasks or projects on your plate.

When and Why Should I Outsource

When & Why Should I Outsource?

First, always remember that you can’t outsource your passion, so it’s important to review what areas you can pass on to a virtual assistant or support staff. Also, keep in mind that assessing your business budget is essential to keeping your sanity as well. You don’t want to replace one stress for another stress unless the benefit exceeds the cost.

So, how do you know it’s time to start outsourcing?

Like many of us, did you start your business to have more control over your finances & time? We all try to maximize the profitability of our labor, but once you start growing it’s not always realistic to balance it all. Our business hours are blurred, and it’s not easy to pinpoint where work ends and family time begins.

This may be a sign that it’s time to start outsourcing some of the work. This process can be overwhelming especially if you are a “control freak”… don’t be embarrassed many of us are. In fact, most online marketers and bloggers are introverts by nature and prefer to fly solo. This isn’t necessarily ideal when your business is outgrowing your safe place behind the computer.

Is it time to outsource?

So review your business finances to evaluate how much room you have to outsource some of those headaches. Giving your readers or customers the best version of you and your passion is important. However, take a look at the bigger picture, can you unplug after business is done so you can be present for your family? How much is that all worth to you? You might find the time for a virtual assistant is now.

Why should I outsource?

Investing in virtual assistants to help you allows you to focus on areas you are truly passionate about. Imagine reducing those time-sucking tasks that you dread. Finally, you can regain some balance between work and family!

I’ve been helping clients with a variety of projects from big to small, but the most amazing thing to experience is the ability to provide them peace of mind. Some have put their heart and soul into writing content for a new e-book, but they just don’t know how to put it all together for readers to download. Outsourcing allows them to move onto other areas, while I take care of formatting and designing their e-book. They get to move forward on marketing their new project, instead of being stuck. This is HUGE!

Overall, outsourcing tasks and projects allow you to regain your time & peace of mind. Take a moment to go through your daily to do list. What tasks and projects do you think you could or should outsource?
