Symptoms indicating that the company is not viable without you
No decisions are taken without you
Business efficiency means high quality and quick reaction to circumstances: to solve the problem quickly and to seize the opportunity immediately. This responsibility is always on you, no one will take drastic measures without your consent.
You feel anxious about the possibility of losing control over the company
You doubt regarding the instruments of influence on the company. You are not sure that you will be able to control the business system and as a result, you will not be able to get relaxed without constant involvement in the operational management.
Who will take care of my business, if not me?
Someone will have to replace you, to make important decisions and control the process. It is important for you to have a reliable person who will care about your business like of their own, and be honest with you. But the very idea of how much time it will take to search and check such a leader makes you really anxious.
If nothing changes
You have only two options. Either thoughts about withdrawal from the operational management will remain just thoughts, and instead of being with your family you will keep answering the phone calls. Or you will withdraw from the operational management when the company is not ready enough, that will result in a heavy loss.
