You know the dilemma - should I do the job myself or get someone who is quicker and more accomplished to do it for me...
The benefits of DFY (done for you) over DIY can be substantial. In a cash-strained economy it would be easy to assume that doing something yourself whether in business or at home rather than getting it done for you would be an obvious choice. Don't necessarily assume this until you've thought about it carefully. DIY can turn out more expensive in every way than DFY.
Either DFY or DIY can offer cost savings, either can provide other gains but to help you make the decision - consider the following questions:
Will outsourcing or a 'done for you' service free up your business or your home time to focus on your other priorities? This might benefit your business or home life by allowing your family or staff to concentrate on their other tasks or activities that are more important or valuable to you.
Is it likely to improve your efficiency in your work or business or your enjoyment at home? A 'done for you' service can bring flexibility to both work and home, turning fixed costs into variable costs and freeing up capital in business or freeing up your time at home.
It may be tempting to rush into DIY, but take the time to think through what you need and consider the following question:
Is the job among your core strengths?
Check your return on investment (ROI) - then query potential service providers for help, as some use an ROI calculator. Will your business suffer because you didn't invest in the expertise or the facilities, or the time-saving that an outside expert can provide?
Simply put - what will profit and cost you most DFY or DIY? In the home, if you love doing things yourself and get an enjoyment from the activity then consider this alongside the reasons for not doing it yourself.
