Jef. Thanks. Yes that does happen. Work out what you need and go with that
Jef LippiattCo-founder at Startup Chucktown
There are a lot of sound principles mentioned. I think it is difficult trying to agree with the other person where their role stops or what exactly you need. Currently, I've mostly used mentors, but I can see the need for a business advisor as I start to accelerate.

HI Jeff. Yes we do not realise how important they are until you have them.
Jef LippiattCo-founder at Startup Chucktown
I agree that accountability is very important. All entrepreneurs should have someone (a mentor or brutally honest friend) that will check in and call out problems that could escalate into something very bad for the business.

Thanks Matt. Yes it is easy in theory. The key is to actually follow through what we know we need to do.
Matt Dell
Good advice here It looks so simple when you lay it out like that - of course it isn't in real life But the more separation you can have between the time you put into your business as the owner/manager and the time you are one of the workers the better Everyone needs some time out to work ON the business and the more you can do this the more insight you can get to the factors you describe here

I like to have a routine day to day, but it's hard getting into a routine. I don't sleep much. ~5hours/day. I should sleep more but I like to get up early, get some exercise in, sort out the important emails and prioritise calendar tasks for the day. Ideally, I'll do the tasks that require significant thought early on in the day and do less cerebral work later on as I lose energy, but that doesn't always happen.

Great article Vincent, one thing i will add is how important is is to prepare your business to grow or scale before your turn the marketing tap on. Too often I see businesses putting the 'cart before the horse' so to speak and look to market and grow the business but can not sustain it . Understand your capacity and have a plan in place that will cope with an influx of more business. A good starting point is to ensure all your systems are in place and your staff are clear on their role within the business.
