I agree... You can choose to either be The General of your Army or A Soldier in the trenches.. To me, a successful business is when you are The General of your Army...PAYG and some one Self employed are the Soldiers in the Trenches, because they are selling their time as opposed to outsourcing and leveraging some one else's time. If you dont work to replace yourself you keep on working...nothing wrong with that if that's what's you enjoy doing and prefer to do. But as Mr Fab states "Achieving the goals you've set for the business, whatever they may be", The General of the Army is the business goal. Everyone has their own Success definition.. The General is mine.
