Do you ever wish someone would tell you exactly what to do to move your business forward?
There’s no shortage of online experts and step-by-step guides to running your business. And sure, all those gurus probably know more than you do. After all, they’re succeeding, and you’re not (yet).
Shouldn’t you take their advice?
Should You Take an Expert’s Advice?
Sometimes, you should.
But sometimes, what you’re looking for isn’t just a guide or a coach. You don’t want someone to advise you – you want someone to tell you what to do.
And if that’s the case, what you’re looking for isn’t a consultant. You’re actually looking for…a boss.
Isn’t that exactly what you created your business to avoid?
Do You Need a Boss?
The thing is, it’s scary being the person in charge. It’s terrifying knowing that ultimate responsibility lies with you. That you’re the one who has to make the big decisions, and that your decisions affect whether your business stands or falls.
But that’s exactly what it means to be an entrepreneur.
And no matter how knowledgeable an expert is, he or she can’t make those decisions for you. Only you can do that.
Only you can decide whether to pitch a guest post to this blog or that blog. Only you can decide whether it’s time to hire a team, or pivot your business to a more interesting (and lucrative) focus.
Only you can decide when and how you’re going to grow your business. Only you can decide if you’re trusting an expert too much, instead of your own decisions.
Have you ever been afraid to make big decisions about your business? How can you overcome that fear?
