Empowered Delegation: Trusting to Truly Shine


I'll never forget the day I realized that my business was running me instead of the other way around. It was a typical late night, with the glow of my laptop bathing the room in cold light. Then, a quote from Andrew Carnegie whispered to me from the back of my mind: "No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it." That was my wake-up call.

The Myth of 'Doing It All':

Remember, every maverick's strength is amplified by the community they foster. 

I once believed that my success depended solely on my efforts until mindfulness taught me that my true strength lay in the collective. 

It's a revelation that many of us arrive at only after facing the wall of burnout.

Identifying Delegation Opportunities:

Take a pause. Breathe. 

Look at your tasks. Which ones feel like they're chipping away at your soul

Those are the ones begging to be passed on. Just as I learned to hand over tasks that clouded my passion, you'll find someone whose passion aligns with those tasks.

The Art of Handing Over:

Delegation is not a surrender but an act of trust. 

When I first delegated work, I was taking a leap of faith by entrusting parts of my dream to someone else. 

However, by setting clear intentions and maintaining open communication, it became a partnership that enriched my business.

I vividly remember delegating my first significant project to a team member. It was a flow sequence with articles, web pages and email sequences. It felt like watching a child ride a bike without training wheels for the first time—terrifying, yet thrilling.

The outcome was remarkable. My new team member excelled, and the project thrived.

Reaping the Rewards of Delegation:

Imagine this: with the mundane off your plate, you have space to create, innovate, and nurture your core passion. This isn't a distant dream—it's a shift that occurs when you trust others to handle essential tasks but not your forte.

Point of Reflection:

Which tasks can you delegate that align with someone else’s strengths?
How does holding onto these tasks serve your ultimate goals?
What steps will you take to ensure clear communication and trust with those you delegate to?

Action Steps:

List the tasks you perform weekly that do not require your specific expertise.
Schedule a time to discuss delegation with that person/service, setting clear expectations and outcomes.
Identify at least one person or service that could take over those tasks.


Delegation is the dance of empowerment. When you delegate, you're not stepping back—you're stepping into the visionary role. You empower others to shine, creating a ripple effect of growth and fulfilment.
