If you’re trying to run a successful business, do yourself a favor and hire more people. Hire people that are better in you and are capable of doing the work that you don’t want to do. Many people feel as though hiring people better than you means that you’ll be replaced. That’s not true. Face it, most people are trained to be employees and not managers. They don’t want to put in the extra work needed in order to manage other people. Outsource grunt work to employees and give them a paycheck and they’ll gladly oblige. They’re wired that way. If they wanted to be managers, they would have been already.
Why would I want to outsource work to smarter people? Think of it this way, have you ever went to a company and you felt that no one knew what they were doing? Turns out, that could very well be the reason. People usually hire people worse than them because they feel that once the employees realize it, they can replace the managers. If they’re worse, then the manager can feel better about themselves because they’ll never be replaced. If you’re the smartest person in your business, then guess what, your business is in trouble. If you have to constantly explain things, your company will become bogged down and won’t make enough profits to survive.
What would a successful business do? Have you ever worked for a company where the boss seemed to not know what he was doing but his employees did? Same concept. The manager only knows how to manage people and get them to do what he wants. His employees know what they’re doing, will get the job done, and won’t do or say anything about their boss because they’re afraid to get fired. Yes, the boss knows less than his employees but think about it in the end. Who’s getting paid more money? And who’s taking the chain of command? If the employees think it’s unfair, simply become a manager or quit. Which most people never do, hence there is no problem.
So if you want to have a successful company, outsource your work to better, more capable employees, and get used to the idea of managing people. Always remember that no matter what work they do for you, the value they give to you far outweighs the benefits of what you’re paying them. Don’t be afraid to give them a raise when they ask for it, but not before. Once your business becomes successful, you can think back and wonder why you didn’t think of outsourcing sooner.
