You’re irreplaceable, indispensable and unique. You’re also one of the most stressful parts of your business. As the owner, you make all the critical decisions and bear all the risks. There is no department head or VP to blame if something goes wrong. It’s all on you.
The owner often plays the role of both the company’s greatest asset and weakest link. If anything were to happen to you, your business would be unable to operate effectively. Your company can only thrive if you take steps to reduce your dependence on yourself without compromising your long-term interests or overextending yourself in the process.
