As a business owner, it’s imperative that you know each aspect of your business. But wearing too many hats other than as the CEO of your company can deter your business growth. Watch the video and find out if you are wearing too many hats in your business.
It is common for business owners to take on all the roles and responsibilities of their business when starting out.
Not only are they CEO but they also take on the role of CFO, marketing and sales officer, customer service, and web developer.
It makes sense at the beginning because you want to save money.
But if you continue down this path, even when you start growing and have grown, you are setting yourself up for burnout and failure.
Even Superheroes Need a (lot of) Sidekick
That’s a good allegory why you cannot afford to wear too many hats as a business owner.
Batman needs a sidekick; Captain America and Ironman had to gather all the superheroes to succeed in defeating Thanos.
Your main responsibility as a leader is to grow your business.
If your focus is on too many things, you’re sacrificing productivity.
More so, the growth and success of your business.
You can’t possibly be an expert at everything.
There can Only be One
Creating a dynamic and vibrant company is a result of teamwork.
When you look at every successful business, it’s not a one-man show but a team effort.
In line with that, I want to share two important variables that will bring your business to the next level and up your game as a leader.
As you bring your business to growth and success, you need to implement strategies and accomplish various tasks.
It is possible but you need to define the role that you will play at this particular moment in your business.
Will you be the CFO, the content strategist, or the sales lead?
Choose only one.
Don’t try to wear all of them simultaneously.
The team you have plays a critical role in the success of your business.
And having the right people will help you accomplish that.
When I say the right people, I’m not just talking about skills but…
I’m talking about character and skills.
You need people who will fit into the business culture you are building.
Isn’t that a simple and straightforward approach to growth?
