How to Exit Your Small Business and Stop Being Overprotective

Overprotective entrepreneurs are those folks who can’t let anyone other than themselves complete important day-to-day tasks. When you’re that tangled up inside your small business, it makes it hard for anything or anyone to grow.

That’s why this quick tip tells you how to exit a small business by loosening your grip and sharing responsibility. Time to set your child free…

Video transcription:

Occasionally, business owners are overprotective with their business.

It’s a bit like that Disney cartoon Tangled where the evil witch keeps Rapunzel locked away in the tower. But wise parents know that you have to eventually let go of your children.

As a business owner, you want to clearly establish an exit date. A time by which you’re going to start letting go and handing off control to your employees.

So I would like you to answer two questions in the comments section below:

  1. What is your exit date?
  2. What is the next action you need to take to start letting go?

And if you’ve got a question you’d like me to answer in a future video, ask that below as well.

Thanks for watching. Now go loose a little control.
