I’m doubling right now for a new client. She’s an agency owner who was so busy she couldn’t find time to focus on the tasks only she can do, like landing more of the high level projects she really wants.
So I’m helping with the things she doesn’t need to be doing, like:
- being a liaison between contractors, my client, and my client’s client;
- ensuring our team stays on schedule and meets milestone delivery dates; and,
- keeping copious notes as the project unfolds with multiple twists and turns, making necessary adjustments, and ensuring everyone stays on the same page.
I even stood in for my client so she could take a real vacation for four weeks, more than 4,000 miles from home, and not feel like she needed to constantly check in.
When we first began working together, we didn’t have all of the details worked out. My client even said, “I’m not sure exactly what you’re going to do.”
Three months later she said, “I don’t know how I did this without you.”
Almost everyone I work with aspires to do more, but they get sidetracked.
Is that you too?
3 signs you’re ready for a stunt double:
- You’re tired of being tired. And you really want to focus on what your experience and talent allow you (and only you) to do best.
- You don’t have time to break it down. You have important projects that are so big you can’t even find the time to break them into do-able pieces (market research, website redesign, content strategy, messaging or rebranding, for example).
- You’re missing the right opportunities. Maybe you are doing these projects on your own–and you’re doing it really well–but at the expense of more important big picture and business development work that only you can do.
But stunt doubles only work when:
- You want your work life to be different—and WAY better. Some people complain about how busy they are, but actually thrive in the midst of chaos. If that’s you, then you probably don’t want me shortening your to-do list. If you’re serious about making work more manageable, however, we should talk.
- You are ready to relinquish a little control to someone you trust—someone who can think like you, someone who will represent you well, and someone who is crazy good at being on top of everything (so you don’t have to).
- You are ready and willing to delegate. No fair keeping one foot on the tightrope and one on the platform! There’s only one way that’s going to go down, and it’s not pretty.
Get more done. And get it done right.
That’s what I’m offering to you. Whether it’s writing and design, high level strategy work, or project management, consider me your go-to gal.
