There are a million books, hundreds of methodologies and thousands of consultants to help you grow your business. I have successfully grown five companies in my career, and the techniques are simple, but powerful.
Here are a few thoughts to help you get started:
Delegate and Empower
Good people want to make decisions and own the results. They can only do that if you give them the space and the tools. Every entrepreneur thinks they can do everything better than the rest of the world. In reality, they can’t. But they can do some things better. It’s their Unique Ability. The trick is finding out what that is and delegating the rest to people who can do it better.
The Power of the “AND” vs the Tyranny of the “OR”
I encourage you to work with your peers through groups like EO (Entrepreneur’s Organization) at www.eonetwork.org. Know your limitations and surround yourself with people better than you at those skills outside of your unique ability. I have always said, stay in your lane and recognize the unique talent of others. You simply can’t do it all.
