A big, often overlooked skill needed of business owners is the ability to let go.

This takes many forms, such as knowing when to let go of clients, or let go of staff, but what about letting go of your workload?

Often, if there’s a specific service you’ve positioned yourself as the expert in, or a client has an issue you know you’re best experienced to fix, then you’ll just do it.

You’ll know you can do it 80% – 90% right. And delegating it would mean it would get done 70% right. That’s why it feels easier to keep hold of it and do it yourself.

The problem arises when you keep hold of everything, and find you’re at capacity and end up doing 0% right because you haven’t had time.

A more valuable use of your time, as the business owner, is to let your staff do it 70% right, then work with them to get it 71% right, then 72% right, and so on. 

That’s how you’ll successfully build your business overtime and have people doing things for you.
