What would happen to your business if you took a vacation?
Your answer to this can be very revealing.
Can your business run without you? Can your team function without you? Or do you take pride in being the cog that holds it all together…all the time?
This works to a point. And then, it doesn’t.
As a business grows, the entrepreneurial business owner can no longer hold it all together all the time. Balls get dropped. Team members grow frustrated and may even leave. Customers become disengaged. And the business owner can suffer from issues such as burnout, health challenges, and financial limitations.
What if there were a better way?
A true sign of business growth on a solid foundation is when the leader can freely step away at times to recharge and reflect, all while knowing the systems and people they have in place will carry the business forward while they are gone. Getting to this point takes intentionality. It requires a leader to develop other leaders. And it means working together to create systems that support the business.
Take some to review this recent article for solid advice on how you can create a business to run without you. It will help you “raise the lid” on your business and personal growth.
