Maintain Your Bearings
You’ve safely backed out of the bay and taxied to the runway. It’s time to take off and begin your flight. 20 mph… 40mph… 60mph… You’re gaining speed and momentum, but with that comes resistance and the danger of veering off course. In order to avoid crashing, you must use your resources to remain on course. You must begin to pay attention to your gauges but you are also still using the window as your primary tool to maintain your bearings and make sure you stay pointed straight down the runway as you hurtle forward.
As you grow your business, you will get to the point where you cannot do everything. To attempt to do so will be a detriment to your business. You need others to help you do different jobs because you can no longer perform all the functions that you used to. As the demands on your time increase and you realize the limitations of the basic tools. Plain and simple: In order for your business to grow, you will need help.
