In this podcast excerpt, Earl Foote
There are things in my career that I do day to day that I can’t stand, and I’m trying to get into a place where I’m not doing those things and I’m surrounding myself with people that love it and thrive in that world so I can thrive. I’d love it more expansion as far as the pros and cons of relying on yourself.
If I’m honest, this might be an area of my journey where I’ve made the most mistakes. I am a very independent kind of guy, and I’m a guy who always has had this feeling of not wanting to rely on others or burden others.
Even though there have been available resources or people sometimes to help, oftentimes I just have continued down my path my way. And yes, there there are pros to that, but there are also cons. That’s one of the things I would share with people who are working on achieving something new. Look for support networks and allow others to help you along the way, certainly in business. As you scale and grow a business, you have to bring in other people and other leaders, and you have to delegate . . . or you bottleneck the thing.
