Does Everything Run Through You?

If you own a successful business, you’ve done a great job building it to a point of profitability, allowing you to enjoy a quality lifestyle.  But if you are still the only key person in your business, you have probably not developed your staff as effectively as you might like.  The key to business freedom is to ensure that everything doesn’t run through you, where daily decisions are yours to make.

Business owners and managers must prepare themselves to work more and more “on” their business, and less and less “in” their business.  You need to be doing those things that only you can do.  This means you have to give up doing anything you can delegate to someone else, even if they can’t quite do it as well as you.  You might become surprised that, with the right training, they may be able to do it even better than you!

Some owners and managers insist that they love what they do and want to continue to do it.  But many more labor over the frustrations that everything still has to run through them.  If that’s you, commit to making that change.  If you need help, contact me.
