As more and more people hop aboard the entrepreneurial bandwagon, you may be tempted to join them. Before you seriously consider taking the plunge, though, look at Open Forum’s list of 10 signs that you shouldn’t be a small business owner. For example:
You can’t make decisions
Making decisions doesn’t mean you need to make every single decision (that’s what we call micromanaging), that you have to deliberate for hours over the ones you do make (that’s what we call procrastinating), or that you have to make decisions following a certain procedure or managerial methodology. You do have to be able to make the call, one way or another, move that decision into action, and then deal with what happens as a result of that action, good or bad.
An indecisive leader wastes time trying to figure out which way the wind is blowing. Meanwhile, the rest of the world has passed by. In business, taking too long to make a decision on how to proceed means you lose the chance to proceed.
