The Problem Small Businesses Don’t Want to Admit
Every small business owner is an entrepreneur and a technician, but not everyone’s a manager.
Most people start a small business after working a job that involves ‘making’. Programming, graphic design, SEO, you name it – small business owners usually get their idea when they realize that they could be doing the same thing as they’re doing now and getting rid of their boss.
Motivated by the mythical entrepreneurial drive and true technical experts in their field, founders don’t realize that they can’t just get rid of the boss — they have to be the boss.
Being the boss involves management of time, people and money. While this can be possible if it’s your only responsibility, on top of everything else it will be overwhelming.
Unfortunately, in starting a small business, suddenly you have a boss again – your customers, the amount of hours in the day and your revenue.
Don’t worry: that’s where productivity tools come in.
