If you’ve left the corporate world to strike out on your own in your own home-based business, you’ll be acutely aware that your financial success is up to you and you alone, perhaps for the first time in your life. For obvious reasons, therefore, your home-based business is probably run on a shoestring.
This means, of course, that you do everything. Although you are now CEO, you are also secretary, marketing director, receptionist and gopher. But hey, that’s the way you like it, right? Just as well too since when you’re just starting out you don’t have much of a choice anyway.
But sooner or later, if you keep doing everything yourself you’ll necessarily curtail the growth of your business. It will grow to a certain point but no further because you’re only one person and there are, after all, only 24 hours in a day.
