A business owner can often work long hours and develop burnout. It’s important to know how to run a business while not trying to do it all yourself. You need to know that your plate is full, you begin to lose focus. You need to prioritize what needs done. Facing the fact that you have limitations and then encouraging your team to take ownership and nit micromanage everything team members do alleviates a lot of stress and workload.
- Knowing when to say “no” is probably the biggest startup challenge founders face.
- It’s important to sift through your overwhelming to-do list each day and prioritize.
- The reality is that you don’t have time to do hands-on tasks that your team should be responsible for.
