Small business owners and entrepreneurs are masters of their own domain. You rule the roost. You’re the big cheese. In many cases your business lives or dies with your effort, creativity, guts and passion.
You don’t work for anyone right? Well, I’d argue you work for your customers, but that’s another story for another day.
Even if you are “numero uno” and the soul of your business, you still can’t possibly do everything all the time.
And that brings us to what many small business owners and entrepreneurs dread — delegating.
Delegating work is a reality of life. It’s a necessity for success. If you don’t delegate you’ll get buried under the weight of your workload and responsibility. Delegation is a must if you want to grow your business. And it’s often a bit scary to delegate. Will you lose control? Will the work be done precisely the way you want? What will happen if someone screws up? How can you possibly manage it all?
The Great Big Small Business Show is here to help with all of those questions and more. This week’s episode of the podcast is all about delegating successfully.
We’re on episode #5 with some great bits from Becky McCray, Steve Rucinski and Jon Swanson.
Laura Allen steps up to the plate as well, but veers off topic (that’s ok!) with an equally interesting bit about how to ask for millions of dollars in under a minute. If it works, you might want to share a small percentage of those millions with Laura!
WE NEED YOUR FEEDBACK!
We want to know what you think of The Great Big Small Business Show and how it’s progressing after 5 episodes. We want to know what you like, don’t like, find interesting, worthwhile…is it fun, boring, too fast, too slow? Any and all feedback is appreciated!
Once you accept the fact that delegating is a necessity, and embrace it as a way of making yourself more productive and making your business more successful, you’ll want to figure out how to do it well. And that’s what this week’s episode of The Great Big Small Business Show is all about!
