25: How to Decide Whether to Figure It Out or Farm it Out with Krista Smith

How to Decide Whether to Figure It Out or Farm it Out with Krista Smith

Have you ever spent hours trying to figure out the technical aspects of your business and wondered if it would be smarter to outsource?

That can be a hard line to draw sometimes, so we’re going to try to simplify it in this episode. 

Today we are joined by tech guru Krista Smith who is sharing 7 tips to help you decide whether you should figure it out on your own or leave it to the pros! 

Krista Smith loves helping women over 40 get confident with the tech that will allow their businesses to thrive online. She gets it. She is a part of the generation of women who didn’t grow up with a smartphone in their pockets. They didn’t have a computer (or possibly even internet) in their homes until their 20’s. That means they didn’t have their childhoods or teenage years to learn how to adapt to changing technology.

Coming from a background in education, she’s been teaching tech for over ten years. Between coaching (she's a CTI Trained Co-Active Coach), building websites for her clients, and teaching women how to code, she's learned plenty about helping women launch profitable businesses. Most recently she's become a Certified StoryBrand Guide, helping her clients master their messaging too.

Keep in mind while listening that these tips can really be applied to anything that you’re thinking about outsourcing.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • How to figure out what you’re passionate about and what you’re not 
  • There are no rules when it comes to outsourcing and delegating 
  • Giving yourself permission to invest in yourself 
  • The value of investing in coaching or consulting
  • How to have an abundance mindset 
  • Identifying your zone of genius 
  • Why you should audit your time 

There are going to be times when you want to learn a new skill or you feel something is worth figuring out on your own, but there are other times when you will want to leave it up to someone else. I get it!

Krista and I are here to tell you that you have permission to outsource! It’s okay to hand something over for the sake of your time and energy.
