Entrepreneur v.s. Employee tasks – what’s the difference?
Just had one of those days where you were just putting out fires in your business and you feel like throwing in the towel?
The reason often is due to the business owner not setting up the right systems to handle the business operations. It’s a mind-set issue you see. The role of the business owner is to eventually remove themselves from the business. Not be the "cog" in the business.
WHY? Answer: A business is more valuable when it can operate profitably, survive and grow and survive without the business owner.
The business owner needs to spend a little time EACH and EVERY day (as much as possible) to work on "Entrepreneurial tasks" and not "Employee tasks". Entrepreneurial tasks like marketing planning and documenting processes (or working with a staff member to document processes) adds significantly more value to a business than $18-$22 per hour employee tasks like making deliveries, filing, bookkeeping, etc.
