As an entrepreneur, I am consistently asking myself “What is the highest and best use of my time right now?” Unfortunately, updating my own blog or hiring help wasn’t the answer at the time because my workload was piling up to the point of near paralysis.
I knew for about 6 weeks that I needed to hire a marketing coordinator/assistant. There was this feeling of clarity, like I knew the right person was out there just waiting for me, and I was waiting for her. In fact, during busy times I visualized this new support person, complete with a sense of her energy and qualities I knew I needed. But of course, setting aside time to even write a job description let alone go through the interviewing process felt like another laborious and daunting task. But client deadlines were looming and one day I woke up and instinctually knew it was the day to find help — like NOW.
