As your business growth begins to accelerate and reach ‘take off’, the time arrives when you need to start delegating, so that you can focus on the things that matter most to strategic growth.
When you calculate what your time is worth in terms of opportunity cost, it quickly becomes evident that hiring support is a real priority. Yet many business owners make a critical mistake at this junction, which stifles growth and affects reputation.
You see, as long as you were taking care of key functions like customer service yourself, you could ensure that quality was maintained. Now, even through it’s a $25 per hour task which can easily be delegated, unless you are able to delegate it to someone that has the same passion for your customers that you do, handing off the task is going to impact the way customers experience your business. You need talent, you need it now, but you can’t afford to compromise.
Finding ‘super’ employees isn’t easy, particularly the kind that small businesses need – team members that can wear multiple hats, that are flexible, and willing to stick with it during periods of uncertainty and discovery. It takes a lot of time, effort, and can be incredibly frustrating.
