When Do You Hire Professional Help?

Posted By on February 13, 2012

My eyebrows were the first indication that I needed professional help.

For several years, I had done the plucking thing with limited success. They always wound up crooked, and I’m sure I sported a raised Spock brow. Then someone told me how they had their brows waxed in a salon. I tried it. I liked it. It simplified one aspect of my life.

It was the first time I realized that sometimes we all need a little help. Over the years, I’ve sought professional help several times. I’ve worked with a life coach, a couple of fitness trainers, a therapist and my blog editor.

No matter how hard we try, we can’t be good at everything, and there are times when we need to call in the calvary. So when you do hire professional help?

You hire help when you need it, when you can’t do it by yourself, when you don’t have the skills (see my eyebrows), when you need accountability, when you don’t have time and need to delegate, and when the task is just so overwhelming that you know you can’t do it alone.

It’s not a personal failure if you need to bring in someone to help you. It’s called survival.

When hiring someone, play it smart. Ask for recommendations and interview them before making a decision. Then let your life change because you were brave enough to ask for help. Even if it’s just getting your eyebrows waxed.
