Surround yourself with (great) people

Running a successful company requires a team, not just one person. With only one person responsible for each decision or activity, there’s only so far your business can scale. Consider some of the tasks you could hand over to contractors, employees, interns, and even family members! 

Try delegating some of your major pain points first; this will free up your time to focus on the important stuff. 

If you are a furniture maker, you can decide to delegate your social media activities to your cousin that is more tech savvy than you are. 

What having people around does for you is that they also serve as a source of emotional supoort. The road to starting and growing a business successfully is a long one and can get weary at times, constant encouragement is needed. 

Surround yourself with great people who can help you get things done in your business and others who can provide some help or the other at other times. This is also one of the most valuable things a community does for you.
