Hi there, I totally agree with the advice above.

What I’d like to suggest is a step in between – to make sure you get the most out of any coaching you may get. Because that feeling being stuck is suffocating.

It takes a lot of time and energy to get a new person up to speed on your business and it’s intricacies. That new person also needs to be fit for purpose – you don’t want to waste time on the wrong problems.

Can you step away from the day-to-day to work through these questions? What are the family dynamics? If the answer is yes, can you start carving that time out now to start on some of this?

What are your bottom lines – what debt is there, what commitments beyond your lease are there, who is out there that could buy the business? What would you need to do to get the business ready for sale? How long would that take? What are the elephants in the room? During what time if the year?

Can you answer these yourself or with your family – or do you need an external party to work through them?

If you have a bit of a plan/framework to go about getting some answers to your questions you’ll gain some momentum and a plan will emerge.

Happy to chat if you need to bounce some ideas off anyone.
