I have been fortunate to have a number of awesome business mentors in my lifetime.
I was reflecting earlier this week that the first of these was when I was just 12 years old.
Isn’t it funny how some things just stick with you over time.
And now I regularly convey this one vital piece of information to our business clients.
I do think this is one of the most important things for business owners to understand and implement . . .
Do what you do best,
and delegate the rest.
Sounds pretty simple doesn’t it?
But in small-business it is just too easy to ignore this very simple principle and end up trying to be all things to all people in your own business.
The demands in small business can be overwhelming, and for the sole entrepreneur or business with just one or two employees, there are so many things that need to be done by too few people.
Sometimes these decisions are also driven by budget considerations.
The irony is that this makes it even more vital for the business owner to . . .
do what you do best, and delegate the rest.
And also to find out what the team members do best, and make sure that the work is delegate where it is best handled.
Because it is actually more cost efficient, (cheaper), to get things done by those who are best suited to the task.
If you are not really sure what you should be doing, and what you should not be doing, then think about what is most enjoyable and easy for you to do.
And that is it!
Still not sure?
Then this profiling tool that I use in my business consulting and coaching is very useful . . .
Well, that is quite simple really!
What should you do now?
- Find things to delegate to save you time and money.

Holding anger is like grasping a hot coal to throw at someone else; you are the one who gets burnt.
