As entrepreneurs, we get in a lot of trouble when we don’t realize that no one cares about the success of our business as much as we do. We forget that the rest of the world doesn’t have our passion and determination for our business. Our business life and personal life, if we even have one, are intermingled.
The problem is our expectations are way too high for our employees, we forget that it’s our dream, not theirs. Many times we lose great employees because they don’t live and breathe our business every hour of every day. When we don’t realize that that they don’t care as much as we do, we alienate them, and that includes the people that are doing a great job.
We have to realize that they’re supposed to have a personal life, we’re the ones that chose our path.
