- Trying to do it all
Small business owners are trained at the time they start their business that if something needs to get done, it’s probably going to be them doing it. This is very common during the startup phase of any business, but what I typically see is business owners/leaders who are unable to let go once that business is growing and expanding. I see business owners with successful businesses who are still cleaning the office space, paying invoices, and doing their own mass marketing. Why? Because they don’t know the point when their value per hour to their business far exceeds the cost they would incur to offload this to a service provider.
