As business owners, of all sizes, we’re often compelled to go it alone, stick with what we know, keep to our immediate network.
Often we see it as part of being a ‘real’ New Zealander, after all, we’re original and unique, “self-made” men and women, are we not? We’ve done what it takes to get where we are, made the necessary sacrifices.
For many of us, business has become a carefully-orchestrated game of stretching immediately available resources and sticking with the tried and true methods we’ve used for years.
Calling in extra help would be like cheating or failing… right?
People might think we’re not capable?
In fact, growing your network, connecting with new resources that can help you launch, improve, change, is not only one of the easiest ways to prevent burnout yourself, it’s also one of the best ways to grow your business as a whole.
If running a business is a game, then consider it a team sport – and the skills of networking and delegation are the best power-ups available.
In fact, it would be a mistake not connect, bring new people, from businesses and organisation’s with skills, resources and services to help you win, on to your team....
This Tuesday Tauranga Maori Business Association are hosting an evening to introduce you and make a connections with some valuable team players here in Tauranga.
