To Work Less, Hire These Two Roles First

By James Key Lim | Grow Your Business

Can the business function day-to-day without me?

That’s a good question.

Can it?

If I want to look at it at the simplest way as an entrepreneur and executive, and if you think down to the very, very basic in any business, there are really two functions: one is Sales and one is Delivery.

But if you really want to get it down, then Sales and Delivery.

I would start there. Those would be my first two hires in some sense, depending on your product and service.

But who’s going to sell? Who’s going to deliver?

In that regard, once you have those people in place, you’ll be able to step out of the business a little more.

Then you can expand that simplicity into a little bit more complexity, like for example:

Sales, Operations, and then Delivery.

Or Sales, Operations, Delivery, and Support.

That’s how you’re going to look at it. But I will start simple.

Hire that first person or obviously if you have a team already, really make sure you have the right people.

I think part of what is the challenge in any ability for an executive or entrepreneur to step out of the office is that they don’t have the right people in place.

They’re reluctant to make that change because obviously, we typically are nice, and we don’t want to hurt people’s feelings.

But in the end, it’s about really providing the best place for that person as well as the best place for the business.

I would recommend that you make sure that that person in those critical roles are the right person to allow you to step out of your business.
