Step 1 – Admitting I wasn’t Superman
“I think the biggest trap business owners like me fall into, is thinking they have to be everything to everyone,” said Chris. “In my case, I was the salesman, estimator, carpet fitter, you name it.
“I was afraid to delegate anything, for fear it wouldn’t be done to the right standard.
“As a result, I didn’t have a life and I was so stressed out, my family were taking a back seat.”
After 20 years in the business, Chris was only just keeping his head above water. Extremely busy on the wrong things and with limited reward.“
“Ros had called me a couple of times, saying she could solve my problems, but I’d been too busy to listen. Then I got to a point where I was so run off my feet, I had to admit I needed help, and I got her involved.”
