If being a start-up business owner has been your dream for some time, and now that you’ve achieved it you’re finding it to be more of a nightmare than you imagined, then you should seek help and advice on how to making it a success. Even if you are the type of person who is more of a lone wolf, and prefers to do things by yourself, asking for assistance isn’t going to show to be weak. What will show you to be weak would be your business collapsing.
Handing over the reins once in awhile does not mean you’re admitting defeat or letting somebody else take over your dream: it’s a practical way to make sure that your business is performing to its full potential. Having total control of a business is every business owner’s dream. However, having total control of a business, for anybody, even its owner, is not a realistic prospect. You should seek to hire, if you haven’t already done so, a number of professionals to help you steer the ship that is your business away from any potential icebergs. Having an accountant or financial advisor on board, for instance, would take the financial burdens away from you. They would assist you in regards to aspects such as the drawing up of business plans; tax issues; VAT and PAYE procedures as well helping with certain legal requirements. You could also seek to hire or build a relationship with an experienced in-house lawyer, who would make light work of any legal requirements that you face.
