Series: Outsoucing

Cohosts: Warrick and Michaela from ‘The Tradies Business Show’

In this series of Toolbox talks, I’m joined by our friends Warrick and Michaela from The Tradies Business Show, where we’re talking about Outsourcing.

I asked them to join me on this series because they both formally ran a company called Tradies VA, which was a business that helped trade based organisations leverage the use of assistants, so that the business owners could free themselves up to take care of the more important areas of their businesses.

Waz and Michaela both a wealth of knowledge in this field and I’m sure you’ll learn a bunch from what they have to say.

Episode 1: Discovering what your business strengths are within your own business.

In this episode, Waz, Michaela and I talk about the power of discovering what your business strengths are within your business, so you can spend your time doing what you’re good at and not all the other things that can be delegated.
So often, we find ourselves wasting time in our own business, but doing things that others can do so much better. Some examples of this might be:

  • ANSWERING PHONES!!!
  • Accounting
  • Invoicing
  • Following up late payments
  • Estimating

This is a great podcast that drives home the point that if you waste time doing what you’re not great at, you’re doing more damage than good.

Coming up in following episodes:

TSS024 – Developing processes that can replace you in your own business.
TSS025 – Building a power remote team

You can reach Warrick and Michaela at Tradies Business Show and I thoroughly encourage you to head across to iTunes, or Stitcher and check out their awesome podcast.
