Did you watch the first episode this season of Shark Tank? Season 9, Episode 1.
If you haven’t, find it on demand and watch it.
Very first pitch- an 11-year-old boy named Carson got up and presented something he invented called a “Locker Board” …which is basically a skateboard that can fit inside his locker at school.
Super smart kid. You can tell right away he’s going to be incredibly successful.
But it wasn’t anything that Carson said that jumped out at me… it was something that Richard Branson, who was a “guest shark” that day said to him…..
“You’re going to have to learn to delegate. Too many people think they can do it all themselves.”
That sentence was plopped in the middle of a conversation that continued on like it was just a run-of-the-mill, every day sentence… but as an entrepreneur, that really hit home.
It’s also one of the most common challenges that I see nearly every single fitness business owner struggle with.
We all start off doing EVERYTHING ourselves. We have such a high expectation of the quality of our work, and we have a really hard time letting go and trusting others to do it.
There’s just no possible way anyone else can do a better job than we can, right?
AND…. sometimes we feel like it will just be easier and way more efficient to just “do it ourselves” rather than take the time to show someone else how to do it.
NEWS FLASH: IT’S A BIG, FAT LIE.
It’s one of the biggest traps that entrepreneurs fall into… and it’s one of the leading reasons why entrepreneurs burn out and don’t reach their full potential.
Delegation is not only something we NEED to do in order to grow our businesses…. but it’s something we need to maintain our sanity, keep our passion strong, create more impact, and create financial and lifestyle freedom for ourselves and our families.
Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing more and more strategies on how to leverage technology, systems, and your team to magnify your impact and create more financial and lifestyle freedom.
Make it a productive day!
