The reality. Okay, so spelling and grammar is not your thing. But you’re still out there in a world of words anyway. You have to draft that sales letter. You need to finish that proposal. Oh, and don’t forget your latest blog post! You hate proofreading and hope that spell check fixes all your problems.
I can relate. I get it–I do. For example, I’m not a numbers person. I never have been. People always told me, “You’ll have that one teacher who will show you math in a different way and it will all click for you!” Hmmm…I’m still waiting for that teacher. However, as a business owner I have to deal with numbers all the time. I have to check website analytics, create pricing packages, invoice clients and keep track of accounting. I’m not a numbers person but these things still have to be done.
The solution. You might not be the best with the written word but you still have to use it on a daily basis, especially if you have an online business and a blog. Why go it alone? You shouldn’t feel stuck and frustrated. This is the perfect time to outsource your work to a virtual assistant. Write up the basics and have them proofread it for you. This way it will still be all of your thoughts but things will flow smoothly and magically become grammatically correct. Your finished product will look great to all those potential readers and clients. This is the part where you look smarter.
Added bonus. You will also save yourself time by outsourcing this kind of work. This will free you up to handle other things in your business–the things you really want to do. You know, the things that will make you money. This is the part where you feel smarter.
So, what are your thoughts on this? Have you every outsourced any of your work? Please drop me a note in the comments section.
