Well, I finally bit the outsourcing bullet and they said it would never happen! “They” were wrong.
I’ve been an independent thinker, a self-starter, and as stubborn as nails my whole life and now I’m singing my own version of that classic tune by The Temptations – “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg”.
Since I came online about three years ago, I’ve been the epitome of a “solo” professional – meaning I’ve done all the work myself. After all, I’m not only stubborn, I’m a very proud person, too – not to mention that I also suffer from perfectionism.
One fine day I was inspired to design my own business logo. How hard could THAT possibly be? Well, I found out. It wasn’t hard – it was miserably impossible!
I won’t bore you with all the failed attempts, weeks of frustration, or how often I was beating my head against the wall every time I logged in to Photoshop. I’m convinced that site was not designed for regular, normal people.
Lucky for me, I met Michelle Shaeffer. We bumped into one another during a 30-day blogging challenge. I’ve been reading her blog posts and checking out everything she offers and I’m very impressed.
As we speak, Michelle is designing a logo for me. What a relief! I know she’s a Mompreneur who pays attention to detail and does her best to meet her customer’s needs.
I’m excited and can’t wait to see my logo!
If you’re spending all your time doing every single business-related task yourself, you’re most likely as exhausted as I was.
Take it from me – you’ll actually become more productive by doing the business-building activities you really love and outsourcing the rest.
