Are You Making the Classic Entrepreneurial Mistake with Your Business or Your Blog?
Almost all entrepreneurs make the oh-so-common mistake of trying to handle every single aspect of their business themselves. Either they don’t trust someone else to do a good enough job or they would rather just do a task themselves rather than having to explain it to someone else.
In the end, those who never grow out of this stage work themselves into a trap, unable to ever untangle themselves from their business or their blog long enough to take a break or most importantly to grow.
If you are one of these people (as I am, but am working on) consider this instead of attending to every little detail of your business or your blog, shouldn’t you be handling upper level tasks such as planning a strategy for growth, researching new opportunities, or networking?
Just because you CAN do everything yourself doesn’t mean that you should. I think this idea is pretty well understood for business, but what about for blogging? It seems there is some sort of expectation that a blogger handle every detail themselves in order to be genuine. Is this true?
What parts of blogging or your business could you have someone else handle that wouldn’t dilute your brand? Really challenge yourself here. The more time you can free up from doing menial tasks, the more time you’ll have to devote to executing and expanding upon the vision that caused you to start your blog or your business in the first place.
