There is a simple truth that we don’t talk about enough as we grow.
And that is – the bigger your business grows, the heavier it is… the more responsibility you carry.
You are responsible for taking care of clients and team. Making sure everyone is happy.
You are responsible for the work – making sure everything gets done correctly and on time.
You are responsible for making enough money to pay for it all. Paying for team. Marketing. Systems. And hopefully paying yourself!
Let’s be real – it is a heavy burden to carry at times. Especially when you feel like you have to carry it all on your own.
I’m very much a ‘do it myself’ kind of gal. My default mode is to jump in, figure it out and make it happen.
This was a huge part of my success in the early years! When it was just me and my clients.
But when I hit the 6-figure mark it stopped working. It became too much.
Too much work to do.
Too many decisions to make.
Too much to keep track of.
What used to be my strength – rolling up my sleeves and taking care of things on my own – became my weakness.
And this is where my growth stalled. Where my income became stuck.
Because there simply wasn’t enough of me to go around anymore.
When I learned how to shift this – how to shift from doer to CEO – then everything opened up and things began to flow again.
My income doubled practically overnight. My team was rocking and getting stuff done without my having to constantly ask.
I got back to working sane hours – and no weekends! – doing the stuff I loved.
And I felt free – the weight I had been carrying around on my shoulders was gone.
I no longer felt like I had to do it all on my own.
THIS is the work we do together in my CEO Activator – the shift from doer to CEO.
I was just reading this, I’d like to know more about how you removed that weight. How did you specifically remove yourself from daily operations. How did you have someone do a job for you completely? How did you train someone on something you may have had little knowledge about?
