26766101_mlFor years I’ve been saying that the more help I hire, the more money I earn. One of the best ways to grow your business is to hire people to help free up your time so that you can focus on what you do best. While you may think you can’t afford to hire help, consider how outsourcing certain tasks can actually help you make money.

For example, if you can hire someone for $20 per hour to do administrative tasks, bookkeeping or graphic design, and you earn $50 or more per hour, then you can come out ahead. When you reclaim an hour of your own time, you can use that hour to generate revenue, instead of handling tasks—especially the tasks you don’t like (like bookkeeping—blech!).

Whether you need to hire a virtual assistant, graphic designer, bookkeeper or editor, here is a comprehensive list of places to find them.
