On vs. In: the entrepreneur’s dilemma Mike | October 25th, 2010

One of the challenges entrepreneurs face every day is about managing their own capacity. Finding time to think, to plan, and to strategize gets more difficult the larger your business grows. Every day we have to find a balance between the day-to-day chores involved in operating a business and the high-level planning that goes into growing the business.

Each of us deals with this challenge differently, but all of us share this question: how do I manage the time I spend ON the business vs. the time I spend IN the business. I share some thoughts in this short video.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.
