WHEN YOUR BUSINESS HINGES ON YOU, YOU HAVE A JOB; YOU DON’T OWN A BUSINESS.
Concentrate on growing the ability of your business to satisfy the needs of your customers, not on your personal ability to satisfy your customer’s needs.
When your business hinges on you, you have a job; you don’t own a business. This defeats your purpose of setting up the business – to be free to generate jobs for other people, to enlarge your horizon, to create something that meets a need never been satisfied before in the marketplace, and to live an exciting new life.
When the dream is gone, the only thing left is the unsavory grind of daily work.
A business owner’s personal resistance to change causes his business to shrink. A business that gets small again is fated to die.
Your task as an entrepreneur is to prepare yourself and your business for growth. Get sufficient knowledge, and prepare the ground for your business’s foundation and structure, to accommodate additional weight and pressure due to growth.
