Welcome to October! Q4 is upon us and here at Delegate, the start of Fall equates to a heavy sales focus for me and my team to finish strong in 2014. In a business that has been built almost exclusively by word of mouth and referrals, having to become more intentional with our sales efforts makes me want to hide in a dark corner and eat LOTS of candy! I share this with you because like any boot-strapping entrepreneur- no matter how scary the task, I am committed to putting on a brave face and tapping my resources to figure it out as I go.
At Delegate, we believe that there are many layers to effective delegation; some of which are purely emotional. In our last post we reviewed some delegation strategies that can help you begin to master the first steps of “what to hand off”. This week, we are exploring this “mindset” layer, and why it’s so particularly hard for entreps to navigate while building their business. We’ll also review some strategies you can use to reframe and conquer these thoughts.
