Hire vs Do it yourself

Oct 4, 2022

Written by Nir

Indie Creators are constantly asking themselves,

“When should I hire someone to do this task vs do it myself?”

In fact, on an episode of BrewTalk, that question came up. Go here to listen to the full episode. Otherwise we conveniently put together our thoughts below.


Reasons to Hire:

Reasons to Do it yourself:

  • If it’s something you’ve never done, but is integral to your business or creative process
  • You just find the task annoying, but it’s not getting in the way of your most important tasks
  • If you are limited on funds (obvious)
  • If you plan to hire in the future and want to understand what the role takes

These are just OUR opinions, help us make this recommendation better – when did you hire or decide to do it yourself?
