As a startup entrepreneur, you wear many hats. You do the bookkeeping, marketing, sales, human resources, customer support and provide the products and services to your customers. Starting a small business takes effort. So when should an entrepreneur stop doing everything?
When Should an Entrepreneur Stop Doing Everything?
Answer: as soon as possible.
As an entrepreneur, your job is to figure out who can do every task that you’re doing better, faster, and cheaper. You can’t scale your business if you do everything.
Your most valuable time is spent working on your business, not in your business.
- In your business means performing the actual services for clients.
- On your business means planning for growth.
The longer you continue to do every task, the longer it will be till your business can scale. To grow, you must leverage other people’s time and skills.
Good business organization depends on delegating as much as you can, as soon as you can.
Do what you do best. Outsource the rest.
