There are far too many entrepreneurs trying to be a number one when they’re really best suited to be a number two.
I know because I’ve seen it. I’ve seen all of these smart, hard-working, deeply caring folks ruin their lives by trying to run a business they simply don’t have the values to run.
It’s not that they’re bad business owners. But being a leader and visionary requires a certain set of values. If you lack those values, you’ll never be able to significantly scale a business.
It would serve those people to find a really great number one to work for while they play the role of number two, running the operations and the day-to-day while the CEO absorbs all the risk.
Please, take Brady’s advice seriously. Do some self-reflection.
Are you a true number one? Or are you a number two in denial?
