If you were to take a two-week vacation with your family, how would you spend your time while you were out of the office? What would happen to your business while you were gone? Would you spend the whole time on your phone or laptop answering emails and putting out fires? Is your team unable to function without you being in contact with them? Would your “vacation” cause you more stress because you’re not in the office?If your business would suffer in your short absence, then you are a business operator – not a business owner.

To determine the answer to this question, ask yourself the following: Are you able to be strategic, or are you doing the same things over and over because you’re too busy to create an atmosphere of innovation? Are you able to step back and see the bigger picture? Or are you caught in the weeds because your team can’t effectively run the ship without you?
