Building Your Ship...
Grrrr…QuickBooks! Does it make you want to pull your hair out, when you’d rather be styling your customer’s hair? Are you spending too much time weeding through QuickBooks’ intricacies, rather than cultivating your growing gardening business? Or, are you simply spending too much time balancing your books, when you’d rather spend your time inspiring your employees?
Think back to why you started your business. Your passion for your craft was overwhelming with positive energy and enthusiasm. You had a yearning for something, a solution, a product, a need to fill a practical gap in the world with customer service and excellence. As a small business owner, you have followed your heart, found your passion and continued to ask the question “how can I inspire others to yearn for my work in the same way that I do?”
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Antoine de Saint-Exupery, author of “The Little Prince,” challenges readers to balance the lofty task of staying true to one’s self while reaching with determination and heart towards new endeavors. Where are you on this journey to new endeavors? Are you just starting out in your quest for new work and need help with the implementation of new financial systems? Or perhaps you are ten years in and growth has overwhelmed your current processes, creating a need for assistance in managing your expanding company?
Leadership means many things. Sometimes it means inspiring your employees to take charge of their own skills and interests to help realize your company goals. Sometimes it means setting limits on other’s ideas and saying “no” the multiple voices demanding you grow in ways you aren’t sure about yet. Sometimes, it means asking for help.
