FD2B Talk Radio Insight of the Night: Learn to let go

June 21, 2013 -  By

According to Rich Goldstein, president of Green Meadows Landscape Contractors in Oakland, N.J., one of the most important things you need to do when trying to break through the million-dollar mark is to learn how to let go. What does he mean? To successfully grow your business you need to find managers to oversee your company so you can work “on” your business instead of “in” your business.

Hiring good people and then properly training them is the first step towards building a million-dollar company, he says. The next step is to  give your employees some room to do their jobs properly and to avoid becoming a micro-manager.

Goldstein admits it’s easier said then done, but learning to let go is the only way to reach your financial goals and still be able to maintain a quality service.
