How To “Have It All Without Doing It All”

There comes a time in every successful entrepreneur’s journey where the growth of your business feels like both a blessing and a curse. The privilege to serve more people brings greater fulfillment, and the increased income brings an ability to be of greater impact. But the demand can easily outweigh the rewards if you don’t have right growth mindset and practices in play.

Without the right growth mindset and practices in play, it’s very easy to lose your focus on the very thing God has called you to in your business. It’s very easy for the blessing of growth to feel like a curse. So how do you maintain your focus on the things you’ve been called to while growing your business?

Well, in today’s podcast I’ll show you. Today, we’ll talk about the only way to “have it all without doing it all,” and why God actually wants it that way. You’ll see some key biblical principles that show a need for this practice, and I’ll give you an easy method for figuring out what you must hand off in your business if you ever plan to grow.

    This is something I’ve had to wrestle with. What I really could use help on is accounting and book-keeping, but I don’t want to delegate that to just anybody – only people that I can absolutely trust. My wife has been a big help in that regard, but it’s something I’ll have to possibly find another solution to in the future.
    I loved your example of the speaker and the web designer. There are lots of opportunities for us to trade and get creative about ways to scratch each other’s backs.
    And I love the Jethro/Moses scriptural example – that’s THE classic example of delegation from the Old Testament. (Acts 6 is the classic from the NT). It comes down to Moses being OK with losing control. His heart was in the right place, but the execution wasn’t the best.

      Hey Loren,

      Delegation is something I think all “achiever” type people struggle with. We are doers, so we find a ton of excuses not to hand things off. Handling money is something that has to be done by someone you trust, and there are things you can put into place to help make sure people are doing what they are supposed, but the bottom line is, you have to move past some of those fears in order to gain the potential reward. It’s never easy, but always necessary.

      Isn’t that barter story cool? Just goes to show what a little courage and initiative can bring about.

      Thanks as always for listening and contributing, Loren. It’s much appreciated. :)
