10 Things Every Career Woman Should (Consider To) Outsource

Taken from here.

According to a new survey of more than 300 companies in the U.S. and Canada, nearly two-thirds (65%) of respondents expect their employees to work more hours now than they did prior to the recession and see this trend continuing for some time. Working those long hours infringes upon not only our fun, personal time but just our time to get basic things done like buy food and clean our clothes. But you will drive yourself crazy if you spend your priceless free time just running errands when you should be relaxing or seeing friends. You also shouldn’t be at work thinking about all the things you need to do and feeling like a life failure because you have been out of toilet paper for a week.

In these 168 hour work weeks there are certain things we have to do ourselves but for things we don’t, wouldn’t it be great if we could outsource them? Someone else could buy the toilet paper! The things is, now we can outsource almost everything! For example, the service TaskRabbit which is also an iPhone app allows you to easily hire people for several types of tasks including shopping and cleaning. Concierge services as well as sites like Get Friday which provides virtual assistance services to clients all over the world. Get Friday is available 24 hours a day and now caters to busy individuals and small businesses in 30 odd countries across different time zones. You can even hire a personal or virtual assistant on a temporary basis if you need it from TasksEveryday.com. Don’t get someone to hold an umbrella for you, but if you want your time off from work to really be your time you need to consider outsourcing these 10 things.
