Getting Help Is Not A Weakness: How to Delegate Your Way to 7 Figures

Welcome to another episode of 7-Figure Educator Podcast! I'm your host, Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas, and we're about to dive into a conversation that's all about the game-changing power of receiving help. As my education consulting business hit the remarkable 7-figure mark, it became abundantly clear – I can't do it all alone. So today, we're going to explore 3 pivotal areas where I've learned to embrace assistance, and I'm here to encourage you to do the same.

First up, let's talk about the professional front. I'm going to open up about how I've learned to delegate tasks to my fantastic team. Trust me, I've realized that being in multiple places at once and doing everything just doesn't cut it. Letting go of certain responsibilities was a bit of a struggle at first, but it's absolutely vital for our business's growth.

Now, we're going to switch gears and delve into my personal life journey, as I'm going to stress the importance of valuing your time and simplifying your daily decisions. We're talking about reducing the mental clutter and streamlining your choices for a more balanced life.

And finally, let's talk about mental wellness. I can't stress enough how therapy has been an absolute game-changer in my entrepreneurial journey. As we tackle bigger challenges and constantly push ourselves, it's essential to surround ourselves with emotional and mental support.

These 3 areas—professional, personal, and mental—are where I've discovered the real magic of asking for and accepting help. Let this episode ignite your spirit to explore these avenues and create more room for personal and professional growth!


  • It's crucial for you to receive help and support in different parts of your life
  • Delegate tasks to your team as you can't do it all on your own
  • Outsource the tasks that doesn't bring you joy, it's not that expensive
  • Seek mental support through therapy
  • You should challenge societal norms and pressures.
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help and embrace support in your personal and professional life


“What's holding you back from actually leveraging help is you actually think it's more expensive than what it really is." -Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas

"We have an unbalanced expectation for women of color and black women in this country in terms of how we receive help. The expectation is that we are the help, that we are positioned to help everybody." - Dr. Erica Jordan-Thomas
