Business Owners: Work ON and not IN your business. In other words, don’t be Atlas.
Delegate as fast as possible to make yourself redundant so you can work ON the business and not IN it.
Easier said than done, I know – I’ve been there and made that mistake myself by working in the business but I soon found that I actually had more fun and was energised working on the business instead of in of it so I strongly advocate this approach. As a business owner you’re the leader so lead and make sure that your business has a bright future today and tomorrow.
And a secret tip – doing this will make it easier if and when you decide to exit.
