Why You Should Hire a Professional (Even if You Could Do it Yourself)

I’m stubborn (my husband reminds me of this often). I’m also pretty independent. “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” and in my book that usually means I’m going to Google-teach myself whatever I need to know to DIY the task at hand.

As a new business owner, this was a great way to learn and grow when I first started. I needed to be able to try things and fail and then try something else without relying on someone else’s outside opinion. That way I could form my own thoughts and opinions about what was going to work for me and my business and what wasn’t.

But now that I’m more established and moving towards growth and scaling, I’ve learned that those outside sources can be extremely valuable because they can see what I can’t.

A few years ago I stumbled on a quote that really stuck with me: “You can’t read the label if you’re sitting inside the bottle.”

You and I are so wrapped up with the inside of our bottle (our business) that it’s nearly impossible for us to “read the label.” Yes, we could probably look outside the glass and read the labels of other people’s bottles and try to mimic what they’re doing or we could fiddle around with whatever we have inside our our bottle until we figured something out. But the truth is, we’re going to be a lot more successful if we reach out for help.

I tell clients all the time, “Yes, you could absolutely learn Dubsado on your own and DIY your setup and workflows. But how long is it going to take? How stressful is it going to feel? What are you going miss in your setup because you couldn’t read the label from inside your bottle?”

Hiring a professional to help you implement Dubsado into your business will:

  • Save you time
  • Save you energy
  • Ensure you’re getting the most out of your account
  • Ensure your setup will be accurate and functional
  • Give you that outside perspective that could make a huge impact on how you grow and scale your own business
