As a founder, your business will grow only as much as you can handle.
Grow more than that and your business will either shrink back to the size you can handle (if you are lucky) or implode (if you run out of money).
There are two ways to continue to grow the business:
- Accept that you must change and then grow your own abilities; or
- Step aside and let someone else grow the business.
Neither are easy.
It was true for Steve Jobs and it is true for you.
The thing is, good help is out there and available. There are plenty of others to learn from.
If you are willing. If you are not too proud.
That is the first test of growing your business and yourself.
Knowing when to bring in help.
Not just workers. People who might out-shine you.
