Small Business is Big Business

Launching and managing a small business requires a lot of tasks get completed to be successful…

There are over 33 million small businesses in the US today. Managing a profitable small business requires you to do the same things that a large enterprise must do with fewer people. If you’re a solopreneur – you’ve been trying to do everything with no people which is a recipe for financial failure and burnout. There is a better way to work.

“If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together”

African Proverb

Hiring help is for everyone. Even large businesses use contractors to perform certain functions whether it’s because the expertise does not exist within the company or the need is temporary and not worth hiring a permanent employee. Small business owners can adopt this method to strategically grow their business.

As a solopreneur, I learned the hard way that I can’t do everything myself, and do it all well, and see my business grow the way I would like it to. As a creative there are some things that I enjoy doing but that’s still no excuse to do them all. You and I only have 24 hours in day…it’s just not possible to cram 40 hours of work in a day but your business may need that to move it forward.
