All good things must come to an end - including your reign as a small business owner!
Eventually you will have to make some choices about the future of your company, when you can’t (or no longer want to) be in charge.
Leaving a legacy starts at the beginning - much like many aspects of small business management. Having a plan in place from the start is the best way to navigate the unforeseeable future.
World-renowned success stories (like Steve Jobs) may seem monumental in comparison but they began to leave a legacy in the same way.
Each day, you should be aiming to make an impact. Each day, take the opportunity to make a change. Big, small, minute - it all counts.
The ultimate goal in leaving a legacy is to create a business that will live on, even when you move on.
How can you start now?
Leave a legacy, not a liability! Your business must be built BY you, not AROUND you. If your hands alone are holding up the roof, you are in danger of an imminent collapse. It has to stand alone when you are no longer there to hold it up!
