As an entrepreneur, it’s always cheaper to hire yourself.
The only problem is, when you hire yourself to do the work,
there’s nobody left to get new clients, nobody left to do marketing and
networking, nobody left to figure out strategy, nobody left to raise money and
nobody left to grow the business.
Unlike a traditional company, your enterprise isn’t boosted
by a powerful machine working every angle.
It’s just little old you. Doing everything.
Which works well if you’re an incurable control freak and a
consummate individualist, but after a while, especially if you want your
enterprise to evolve, trying to wear every hat every day is unsustainable over the long term.
