I've been muddling through the concept of how to apply management and leadership wisdom and theory to a one-person business. In other words, managing and leading yourself.
Management is supposed to be about accomplishing work through others, making sure the team(s) follow the leader(s)' vision and mission, etc.
Leadership is supposed to be about creating the vision and then influencing everyone else to follow it/make it happen.
I'm still working this through in my head, but it seems to me that with a one person vision, we're so busy making, shipping, lining up work/accounts, marketing, etc. that we don't have time to sit down and really flesh out, articulate, write down, develop a strategic plan around, our vision for our business. Or for our life, for that matter.
But what do you all think? I'm truly curious and would love to hear your perspectives and insights!
