Wearing all the hats when getting your business going can become very tiresome…..ok exhausting!! But knowing what to outsource first can be equally confusing. When I launched my first handbag line, I was doing it all from designing, running my production, sales, shipping, trying to do marketing but failing miserably, and managing my other company which was supporting me and the bag business!
When I finally started to make a bit of money and had consistent orders coming in, I decided that hiring out shipping was my best bet. They didn't need to know anything about the handbag business and if they were able bodied, could take a load off that was bogging me down. Since I wasn't big enough to move to a third party warehouse, I hired a young college guy part time. I felt so free……honestly I got back about 16 hours a week that I'd spent packing boxes and could actually do things to bring in more money like sales!
I ask my Entreprenette Experts to give their 2 cents on what to outsource first to make your company a mean selling machine! Check out their responses below and let me know your thoughts.
