Business Owner’s Minds
You started your own business. You grew your business. You took care of all of the problems. You hire the people you need. You let go of the people you do not need. You have to weather all of the ups and downs. So now, you are facing a new challenge (you always do). Do you want to go out and ask for someone who has never spend a minute at your company to tell you what to do? I don’t think so. I am sure we can find the solution within our company.
In short, this is how most entrepreneurs think, and most of the time you are correct. You do not need someone outside to tell you what to do because you are not the same as other companies. Things that worked for one company may not necessarily work for you. You have different products, services, and style of business.
So how do you hire someone to help you? The answer is very simple, you hire someone when your business is doing well. You hire someone to streamline what you do or tackle new business opportunities. Not when you are having problems. Don’t think a Superman will come and solve all of your problems. That is your job.
