It’s been said many times that a business is like a baby—and it can be incredibly difficult for entrepreneurs to trust someone enough to hand over any aspect of it. Many business owners work themselves to exhaustion because they can’t let themselves to take a weekend off. They neglect their most important relationships and never get to enjoy their successes because there’s always more to do.
The most successful entrepreneurs know they can’t do it all—nor should they—and build in time for rest so they can be more productive at work. Train someone early on to run the business in your absence so you can take a rejuvenating vacation, and enjoy the freedom you likely dreamed off when you first imagined going into business for yourself.
