With a downturn in the economy, entrepreneurs are wondering how to do more with fewer full-time employees. It doesn’t mean shouldering extra work themselves. While we temporarily delay hiring, there is a way to get just enough of their experience to help improve our business. As an entrepreneur, business owner or founder, we deserve the title of superhuman, since we are responsible for the many parts of a business. But we all have our personal kryptonite.
Most entrepreneurs intuitively understand the needs of their customers and love meeting those needs with delightful products and services. We see a future where our customers’ lives are easier and better. Whether that’s a new franchise selling on-the-go smoothies with organic fruits, saving a busy mom 20 minutes of cutting and blending fruit in the morning, or a marketplace app where homeowners can find a plumber to fix an urgent pipe leak without making dozens of calls to people who were unavailable anyway, we chose this “the buck stops here” journey, because we have a vision for a different way, and we realize we have the unique power to impact someone’s life for the better.
