My good friend Kim Walsh-Phillips – social media superstar and author and speaker and on and on – recently created a post talking about a way to get some cool tasks done by someone else. You can read her original post about fancy hands here.
Well typically when Kim shares cool resources, I check them out. I am always trying to find cool new resources and ways to get more done, learn more or be more efficient with my work.
This was no different.
I had heard of fancy hands before, but never really checked it out. Until now.
By the way, if you aren’t familiar with fancy hands, you have to check it out. You can do so by clicking HERE. It’s so cheap and easy to use that I’m now always thinking of things they can do for me. More on that below.
So I signed up for this really cool service. I used her affiliate link to support her and get her more tasks through the service, and I was on my way!
The set up was super easy. It’s amazing how inexpensive it is. And within a day I had 3 tasks done and 1 in the works.
So what did I have them do? Let me share:
3 Ways I Used Fancy Hands in the First 2 Days To Save Over 2.5 Hours For Less Than A Meal:
I had to take a huge pile of paperwork – checklists from my team members at work – and get the stats into a spreadsheet. I normally do this at night while watching TV and use it as a “mindless” task excuse.
But it’s still my time! So why not have fancy hands do it?
I scanned the sheets in, created an input spreadsheet with instructions, then submitted it to fancy hands. It probably took me 20 minutes just to get it all set up. Within a half hour, it was done! I couldn’t believe it. That alone saved me over 45 minutes of work. They did it in 10 minutes, where I would have wasted 45 minutes doing it while watching TV or something else that was distracting me.
BOOM. Time gained! Amazing.
Kim had suggested using fancy hands to help create social media content. Brilliant idea!
So I created a task and said that I wanted to get a list of business success quotes in a spreadsheet. Within an hour I had over 50 quotes ready for me to use in social media posts.
BOOM! Another 30-45 minutes saved easily!
We are going on vacation to West Virginia and I wanted to learn more about where we are going. Specifically – how do I keep a toddler and two active kids engaged.
So I asked them to research the town and find me restaurants to eat at, places that serve ice cream, where to hike and if there are any putt putt or mini golf places around. I had a full list, with reviews from yelp, links to menus and recommendations.
BOOM! No more wasted time on the internet for me.
Now the real money part. What is your time worth?
Let’s assume you wanted to make $100,000 in a year. If you work 50 weeks a year, 5 days a week and 8 hours a day. So divide this out and your hourly rate would be $50 per hour that you work.
Did any of those 3 things above have anywhere near the value of $50 per hour? NO way. That’s making money and saving time.
