Doing it all yourself

 Have you tried to do it all yourself?

• How did that work out?

Trying to do it all yourself is a recipe for being overworked, frustrated, not getting things done well, and a business that is stuck. You can only scale your business if you have team members who help you – who are in charge of a given department.

Many business owners say that they are holding onto a job because “nobody can do it as well as me.” This may be true, but only if IT WAS THE ONLY THING YOU HAD TO DO. Because you have so many things to do each day, while you CAN do a great job at some things, you don’t, because you are rushed.

You have to delegate authority and build or recruit leaders in your company.

Challenge:  Identify the potential leaders in your company.  Who can take on more responsibility?
