1 - Start small, build confidence. Focus on compartmentalizing larger tasks and projects into small parts to build your own confidence around delegation. Do you want to hand off your calendar scheduling? Don’t get overwhelmed by the big picture of doing so; instead segment it out. Ask yourself which part of my schedule could be most easily delegated or automated? Perhaps a first small step is to deploy a scheduling tool for your internal team meetings only.

It still equates to time saved, and you’ll build confidence in this phase.

Using an assistant team of any type is generally a cause of anxiety for many, at least at the beginning. Most entrepreneurs recognize the need for a” behind the scenes” team, but are hesitant to use them to their full abilities.
