From Employee To CEO: Stop Buffering

If you’re moving from being an employee to a business owner, you’re probably feeling a little overwhelmed. The transition is not easy, though there are a lot of resources out there to tap into. In fact, there are so many ideas and views about how to successfully run a business that you can end up “buffering,” planning, and researching trampoline software options for… ever. But there are some big things you know you need to do.

Instead of using skills you needed before, like showing up on time, following directions, and reporting issues to your superior, you’re in charge. You show up when you want to, you make the directions, and you’re the superior who has to sort out the issues. As the head honcho, you need to create the structures that allow your employees to make your business the best it can be.

One thing we recommend: choose your plan and stick with it as long as you can. When you listen to a lot of podcasts and read a lot of books, you can be tempted to shift your plans as you gather more information. And it’s good to keep learning. But you’ll never start your trampoline park if you’re constantly restarting from scratch.
