Entrepreneurship often means wearing many hats, but what happens when one of those hats doesn’t quite fit? As someone who’s always been in favor of delegating work that others can do better than I can do (even if I can do the tasks), I recently faced a daunting dilemma. Should I save money and redesign my website myself or should I outsource it?
Here’s what it looked like the last time I did my own site:
It took me 2.5 painstaking months of work I don’t enjoy doing, and it drained 56 hours from my schedule.
The Turning Point:
When the need for a revamped site loomed again, the thought of diving back into the design process was daunting. So this time around, with constraints on my time and a growing disdain for web design, I turned to Upwork to delegate through outsourcing. This decision, as I came to realize, not only saved my website but possibly my sanity.
It also saved me at least 1.5 months and 46 hours of work I dreaded doing. I also took a vacation in the middle of the project!
Here’s what I learned about outsourcing this website design on Upwork – hopefully, it can help you as well.
