Discover the Power of Delegating

Guest Author: 

Recently, a good friend of mine landed a new book of business. Although she was happy for the revenue and validation it provided, she felt overwhelmed by the increased load it would have on her already busy work schedule. I asked her if she thought it might be time to delegate some of the work, now that she had additional income. She reflected for a moment and replied, “No, I’ve tried that before and ended up doing twice as much work. I will end up doing all the work myself, then have to pay someone else for the time I invest in training that person in.”
