In a perfect world, owning a business would only entail doing the parts you love. Maybe it's designing new products, or consulting with your clients. Every business owner is different, but one thing is the same: If you asked why they started their company in the first place, few business owners would say because I love handling all of my sales, marketing, human resources and accounting.

As we all know, this isn't a perfect world, and owning a business is beyond challenging. To make it all work, business owners are often required to wear multiple hats and understand every aspect of operations. This means that scaling your business and taking on more work can easily become overwhelming.
