Be the business owner
As we enter the new year, a quick reminder:
Be the business owner.
Not the worker bee.
Your focus should be on vision, connecting with customers, leading the team, attracting and hiring the right people for the team, marketing, finances, and other high-level activities.
Don't get lost in the weeds.
Yes, you may need to do some of that from time to time.
But don't get lost there.
Make sure you pull yourself up every so often.
Make sure you're focused on the big important tasks that only you as the business owner can do.
Get help with the rest.
The sooner you learn the skill of delegating and finding the right people to delegate to, the better.
Happy New Year!
