Many business owners find that it’s super hard to juggle all the tasks it takes to maintain a business. Many of them, too, are stubborn enough to not ask for help. If you are one of those stubborn ones, here are five things you need to ask yourself:
1) Are you having less and less personal time as your business grows?
Most business owners start their businesses because they want more freedom when it comes to time, money, and choice. Ironically, though, businessmen find out that as their businesses grow, their freedom is cut short as very little personal time is left with so many business tasks to do. I’m sure you’re reading this because you are also feeling that you are now left with so little freedom and so little time to focus on what you need to focus on when it comes to your business.
2) Do you turn away opportunities because you are too busy?
For a business to grow, each opportunity should be grabbed. However, some business owners become overwhelmed with tasks that they sometimes have to turn away from very good income-generating opportunities – like say a bulk order in X number of days.
3) Is work becoming redundant?
You started your business – and you were both the man in front and behind the cameras. A few years later and you are doing the same things! You are not only delivering on the products, you are also managing the websites, answering fan mail, etc. As your business grows, you should be doing LESS.
4) Is your team becoming too bothersome?
You love your team, they’re the greatest – but sometimes, they have so many concerns that you feel like you spend more time on them rather than on the business side. Don’t you sometimes wish they can turn to someone else to handle their queries?
5) Is your revenue stuck at $X?
You are earning – but the revenue is on a plateau. And you do know that a business grows when its profits start growing as well.
If your answer to all five questions is “YES”, then it’s high time you get yourself an OBM. You’ll be thankful as you realize how easy life is with an OBM onboard.

This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
