Good employees are a special and treasured resource. A mistake often made by entrepreneurs is making employees indispensable to a business’ success.

You should take steps to be sure business operations continue if you are away from the business. Similarly, things should continue smoothly if a key employee leaves the business.
This is a matter of control – you should be in control of your business operations, not your employees. Remember, it is your business. You must show up like a grown up and make things work.

Decisions made based upon knowledge are better than decisions made based upon ignorance or wishful thinking.
