I grew up in the 1960’s working on cars from the 1940’s through the early 1960’s. I’m sure if I had to I could still replace a head gasket or rebuild a carburetor from one of those cars. Not so with cars from the late 70’s to now. I know because I’ve tried a couple of times and just made a mess of it. I no longer try. The car goes straight to my trusted mechanic. For similar reasons, I don’t do my own dental work or prescribe my own medications or file my own legal documents. I know my skill set. I know what I can accomplish and what will frustrate me if I try to work on it.
Running a business can have similar comparisons. People have strengths in different areas: Operations, IT, HR, Legal, Inventory, Maintenance, Accounting, Marketing. However, if you are running a small to medium sized firm chances are you have tried to do all of these things for yourself and found the results lacking. Early in my career, I learned to surround myself with people who are smarter than me in the areas in which I am unfamiliar, and then trust them to do the job.
If you are the “Head Honcho” of a small to medium sized firm you probably don’t have full time departments for all of those functions. We would like to assist you where we can.
