So Do You Work On Your Business or In Your Business?

As an entrepreneur, until your business will run without you, you really are just self-employed, you basically just have a job, you essentially bought your own job.


The reality is for millions of entrepreneurs is that their business depends on them too much. They are often overwhelmed working in their business, doing everything from taking out the trash to doing their own taxes.


They work non stop not because they want to but because they have to. They really don’t have a team in place that can take care of everything and fact is if they were hit by a bus and died their business would die also.

Some entrepreneurs are reluctant to pay somebody to do something that they can do themselves, which can usually be translated into “I don’t have the money to pay someone else to do the work’.


If your business is not generating enough revenue to hire a team to replace you, then you might want to consider a different approach or a different business altogether.


“If your business depends on you, you don’t own a business-you have a job” – Michael Gerber, author, The E-Myth.


You should plan how to get rid of yourself in your business even before you start your business especially if its a service business and you are the one servicing, because once your business is up and running you’ll have much less time to dedicate to such planning.

Having spent most of my adult life engaged in sales and marketing as well as a decade of preparing income tax returns for small businesses, individuals and real estate investors. Running your own business is not easy, you must utilize all the tools available to aid in your business development, I believe your personal development is equally important. I have for many years had knowledge and interest in small and medium sized businesses as it relates to allowable deductions, tax deferred exchanges and other tax treatments, I have also, for many years invested in books, tapes/cds for inspiration and motivation, so it seemed a natural fit for me to become involved in aiding in people in business development as well as their personal development.
