A straightforward and sensible book, it taught me to re-evaluate what running a business means. In short: running a business doesn’t mean that you need to be involved with everything, work 12 hours a day, get stressed out, confused, overloaded and ultimately be unproductive.
A business has many different parts and each one needs a system and/or a person in charge of that part of the business. Breaking your business down into separate parts helps the business focus on the most important tasks. Hiring great people to focus on key parts of your business helps the business do a better job.
