Are you a bottleneck?When your company grows to 10-15 people or more, frustration can begin to build - you have more people to get the work done, but you also have more people to talk to and coordinate on a daily basis. Suddenly you may wake up and realize that you are spending 75% of your time sitting in meetings, managing crises, or answering questions, and you’re not spending very much time doing what made you passionate about starting your business in the first place.

Chances are you spend most of the day feeling annoyed that your employees “don’t get it," while your team is equally annoyed with you because your brain is split in a million directions, you aren’t available to make decisions, and you haven’t given them enough information to function independently.

Congratulations! It’s time to really embrace your role as CEO and make some changes so you can take your growing business to the next level.
