After Entrepreneurship - what's your role?

Leaders Event 2014

After Entrepreneurship - how to move your company beyond your personal drive and control
You have:

  • Come up with the idea in the first place
  • Worked long hours
  • Woken up and wanted to hide behind the sofa at 3am
  • Got your product or service to market and people to pay you for it
  • Dealt with tricky staff and customers
  • Been stitched up with bad payments
  • Had legal wrangles
  • Argued with the bank
  • Moved office
  • You've cajoled people, you've supported people

- And now you've made it., you have a decent turnover, you make profits

You have a company that works, you have key people around you, things happen when you are not involved.

So what’s your job now? How do you run this company you have created, rather than do the business yourself  - in short what’s next.
Learn from people who have done it.
