Kyles landscape, I agree learning is important but others whom are very successful seem to say its important to find the best employee, who may know more than you, and put them in place to do the job. This enables you to do the business end of things. But that takes time too. Some people may know all the ins and outs but just want to be an employee. Put that person in power so you could sell. All this takes time and getting the work too but I'd rather have a team that makes me look good rather than being a dictator having to be at EVERYTHING.... But the you as the owner have the responsibility of making sure you have the work to keep people employed. My friend who has been in business for 15 years, part time, finally let go of the reigns and has summer help that is great. He makes more money and has more family time. He still works his tail off though.
