Where it all began
My father started our family retail business 18 months before I was due to leave school, when I joined it was growing fast and everyday was a bit of a whirlwind. I quickly established myself as the innovator, always looking for way to improve and streamline the business and try to stay one step ahead of the competition. as time went by, and because of my pro active style, I was gradually given more responsibility for the day to day running of the business. This initially wasn't a problem but as time went on I started to spend too much time on the day to day, and not enough doing what I loved which was innovating.
What I wish I knew then that I know now
The latter days of running the business became a slog as my motivation drifted and my focus on driving the business suffered. Looking back I recognised how I let the day to day engulf me and lead to a drop in enthusiasm for my role. With that experience behind me and after selling the business, I realised my mistake and have recognised it as a common experience whether running your own business or working for an organisation.
