If you want to do a few small things right, do them yourself. If you want to do great things and make a big impact, learn to delegate.
John C. Maxwell
As entrepreneurs and solopreneurs, we want to do it all on our own.
Many of us have the “if I want something done, I’ll do it myself” mentality
This type of thinking is reckless.
It is detrimental to your success.
It’s almost as stupid as saying you don’t need any software to run your company.
Leverage is how you achieve wealth.
It comes in the form of money, technology, and people.
The people behind your company: Your team, customers, and raving fans are all forms of leverage.
Hire a team to do tasks that you have no business doing (because you aren’t that good at them).
By delegating to a team, you free up thinking time.
Thinking time creates space in your life and allows you to make the correct decisions for your business.
And that is how you end up rich.
Not by doing everything yourself.
But it costs money to delegate!
If you are at square one and your business has not produced any cashflow, then I understand your predicament.
Because I have been there too.
If you are in this situation, you have to prioritize the most important thing you can do to get the company ahead so you can gain the leverage we talked about above.
The two most important things to focus on are sales and building.
If you already have a product, it’s sales.
If you don’t have a product, it’s both.
