4) The #BOSSBABE Netwerk
Don’t forget about the Netwerk! Here there are plenty of people you can message or email and ask about doing outsource work for you. We have consultants, web designers, marketing experts and more. Also, if you find yourself not having the best budget for outside work, try to barter your services?
What is bartering?
When you trade your products or services in the exchange of someone else’s products or services. If you are a financial advisor who needs a logo designed, try to find a graphic designer and see if they’d be interesting in trading a logo for a consultation. Imagine how much money you wouldn’t have to spend if you were able to barter out some of your services?
Also, here’s a head’s up….
You always want to be careful about who you share your personal or business information with online. Make sure that you are using websites and or programs that have safety and quality guarantees. Any banking information, credit card numbers or emails and passwords should not be given out unless there are very particular circumstances.
