THE HANDS/FEET: Hard Work and Active Involvement
- It’s sometimes impossible to have a physical hand in every aspect of a business, but many young bosses have a hands-on approach to their ventures. They do the work. Early mornings and late nights are often not foreign to them. Some even dabble in every corner of the business, from marketing to customer service to Website updating. Young entrepreneur Angela Benton juggles managing her brainchild, Black Web 2.0, with consultant work, speaking engagements, and other branding opportunities.
- To nurture this: Strive to be mentally and physically fit to keep up with the pace. Know when to delegate so you won’t get burned out too quickly. Find a work-life balance that fits the way you do business. Marketing CEO Tina Wells incorporates a mandatory lunch break and reserves weekends for leisure, not work.
