I tried to do it ALL and failed miserably.  I will admit I use to be the boss, employee, and admin for my business and learned very quickly this wasn’t working.

Trying to do it all is the fastest way to burnout; frustration and giving up.


For the longest time, I tried to do everything in my business instead of hiring help. I spend hours trying to learn the “HOW TO.”  Instead of working ON my business, I was working IN my business.

Sound familiar?

Because of this, it took me months to get things done, and it held me back from moving forward and building my business.

Whereas if I had only invested in a course to give me a proven process to follow and hired someone that could do it better than me and much faster.

Then one day, my coach (YES, I have a coach) told me if I wanted to see my business grow, I needed to outsource the tasks that weren’t making money activities and work on the things that are generating revenue.

Because I chose to teach myself how to do all the things in business instead of purchasing courses or joining programs that would give me a step-by-step process to follow, it was holding me back from making money.

Can you relate?

Trying to do everything yourself or teaching yourself will keep you from growing your business.

I took her advice and found courses and programs that gave me step-by-step tools and strategies to help me stay focused and move my business forward.

The best thing I have ever done is invest in courses and a coach to help me grow my business so much faster and easier than trying to figure it out on my own.

One of the biggest hurdles I see that stops many of us from building a business is not investing in ourselves and getting the help we need.

I struggled with this myself. I would tell myself, I don’t have the money, what if it doesn’t work, and how long will it take me.

One day, I was having a conversation with a very wealthy friend of mine. He told me he just bought a fish farm.

I asked, why would you buy a fish farm? What do you know about that industry? His answer was, “I don’t need to know anything about the industry” I just need to hire people that do.

This was one of the best pieces of business advice I had ever received from anyone. No wonder he’s a millionaire.
