Early in March marked a very special day for me. Possibly one of my biggest wins to date as an accountant and business mentor.

A few years ago, I met a small business owner who was struggling with the usual small business issues.

No time. Working long hours. The wrong people in the wrong seats. Not having the right systems in place.

At that point, we began working on building a self-sustainable business. A business that made money regardless of whether or not he showed up to work each day. A business that continued to grow and prosper even when he was sitting on the beach breathing in the sea breeze – the epitome of success for most business owners.

Today was a special day because today he handed the reigns over to the management team, and with a bright smile on his face acknowledged that his hard work and efforts had come to fruition. He was no longer required within the business.

And perhaps the most courageous move was letting go and trusting in others to take the reigns.

Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this exciting journey. Whilst my job is far from done … you close one door and open another.

All the best for the next chapter in your life.
