Hire the right people and let them do their job
If you tend towards being a bit of a control freak, that may have its benefits, but also serious downsides. Running a new business is hard work, and the best way to make it unnecessarily harder is to micromanage your employees. If you’re scrupulous in your hiring practices and develop a solid training strategy, it’ll be that much easier to delegate. Don’t make the mistake of over-exhausting yourself early on–the ability to step back and give your employees a chance to do well is an important business skill.
Get organized, stay organised
The old adage that there are never enough hours in the day rings very true for new business owners. When you’re just getting off the ground, it’s more important than ever to manage your time properly. Have a day-planner, stick to it, and always ask for help when you need it.
