I still sometimes feel that we talk about outsourcing in hushed voices, afraid of looking weak or out of fear of some imagined judgement. But some of the leading companies in the world and small level startups leverage outside help all the time.
Because they’re smart. Here are a few things that you’ve been hesitant to outsource that you should anyways.
1. Product Development
Whether you’re providing a physical product- i.e. the apple iPhone, or you’re offering software and digital products doesn’t matter. You shouldn’t be manufacturing that product. I even tell my sister-in-law who sells handmade products on Etsy that she needs to outsource that. So put your cross-stitch down. Or better yet, give it to your Grandma to finish for you.
