Take the Leap

Posted on Posted in Commentary

One of the biggest challenges in being an entrepreneur is finding the time to accomplish the myriad of tasks that confront you everyday. It’s sort of like there’s an assembly line that keep bringing new projects no matter how much you get down.

Is there any hope? Starting a business can be the realization of a lifelong dream. At the same time, there is far more work that needs to be done that can be accomplished in 24 hours. While many business owners rebel at the idea of hiring people to help them, whether this is a new employee or outsourcing work to a contractor, there comes a point when you have to let go and bite the bullet.

A common response I hear from people who are running a small business is that they can’t afford it. On a practical level that might appear to be true if you look at your checkbook balance and don’t see how it is possible to afford to hire someone to help carry some of the load.

So what do you do?

The answer is pretty simple, although taking the action can be terrifying. Take a leap of faith. Trust that you are operating in an abundant world that has all the resources you need to thrive, including money. If you read stories about successful entrepreneurs, you will see that almost all of them essentially reach a point where they take the leap into the void. As the saying goes, “Take the leap and the net will appear.”

There’s no other way. If you really need to hire someone to help do some of the work in your business, then do it. Don’t let the belief that you don’t have enough money stop you. Take the leap.
