Are you a true CEO?

Are you a Solopreneur, intent on doing it all yourself or a true CEO, who only does what she is good at? What does a typical day in the office look like for you? Every minute you waste doing the invoicing, payroll, supplier meetings, debtors, creditors, etc is a minute not spent in your area of brilliance. The CEO of a small sized business has 3 major duties: – Make sure there is money in the bank – Get the right people in the right roles – Guide the long term vision for the company. It is impossible for you to do this when you are trying to be Superwoman, taking on all aspects of your business.

Frankly often these tasks are not actually in your area of expertise and you don’t have the required skills to do them, so they are inevitably very time consuming, and over time you lose your spark and frankly get to the point where you forget the reason you went into business for yourself in the first place. Yes I guess you can just keep pushing through and hopefully you will eventually have the break that you need to be able to have more family time, but maybe it is now time to learn how to start working ‘on’ your business instead of ‘in’ it.
