A word on success, for small business owners (which applies to most people who don’t own their own business as well):
Many business owners hold themselves back through improper or insufficient delegation skills. Simply put: It’s likely you spend too much time on activities easily handled by somebody else.
There’s one major place small business owners get hung up that will keep you “running a business” instead of *owning* a business — and that’s investing in the support staff you need to take some of the heavy administrative and marketing burdens off your plate.
This concept trickles down to areas of your personal life as well. Even if you’re not a business owner – are you feeling pressed to find the time to play soccer with your kids, or spend time on the creative outlet that makes you feel alive? It very well may be worth it to hire out your lawn care, or house cleaning, and free up that precious space in your schedule.
