Your role as entrepreneur can be a lonely one. Although you may be surrounded by a good staff, it would not be uncommon for you, at times, to experience a feeling "isolation." It's normal during these periods of isolation to wish that you had an individual with whom you could brainstorm new ideas and/or strategies.
Too often, you, as the budding business owner, may be reluctant to share problems with your employees because you do not want to cause them undue concern or worry. Or, since you yourself, perhaps, are not necessarily confident in your own solution to a particular problem, you may have a tendency, therefore, not to communicate with your employees openly about the problem. It is also easy to become entrenched in a situation where you may not “see the forest for the trees,” thus making it difficult to think of solutions or innovative ideas.
There are many business challenges you, the entrepreneurial business owner, can handle on your own. However, with the daily distractions of owning and managing your business, putting out fires, and dealing with the crises, many times the challenges seem overwhelming.
