EP237: Is It Time to Hire a Team?
Show Notes

Thanks for joining me again for another episode of The Savvy Scribe podcast. Today, we’re diving into a crucial question for freelance writers: Is it time to hire a team of freelancers for your freelance writing business? Many freelancers start as solo operators, relishing the freedom and autonomy, but challenges arise as the workload grows. In this episode, we’ll discuss the signs that indicate when it’s the right time to expand your team.

The Signs to Hire a Team

Sign #1: Work Overload

Feeling overwhelmed and missing deadlines? It’s a sign you need help. Recognize the importance of maintaining the quality of your work.

Sign #2: Leaving Money on the Table

If you’re turning down projects due to capacity issues, you’re not maximizing your potential. Having a steady stream of work you can’t take on is a clear signal.

Sign #3: Complementary Skills

A team with diverse skills can take on more varied projects. Leverage your team’s strengths to enhance your business.

Sign #4: Financial Capacity

Invest in your team to free up time and grow your business. Increased income often follows wise hiring decisions.

Sign #5: Client Base

Ensure your client base can support the addition of team members. Begin with part-time contractors to manage income fluctuations.

The decision to hire a team for your freelance writing business is a significant one. Factors like increasing workload, client base, missed deadlines, and a sense of dread can guide you. If you’re experiencing these signs, it might be time to take the next step.
