Highly effective small business owners trust advisers to help them explore new ideas and discover critical solutions. The candor, talent, expertise, and heart of those we choose as advisers helps us to navigate the road ahead, and it can illuminate our blind spots. Indeed, small business owners without advisers operate somewhat in the dark, lacking healthy outside perspective. Like a beacon cutting through the many agendas and ambitions that demand our attention, a trusted adviser has our best interests at heart.
What do you need to do to identify and engage in conversation with your trusted adviser regularly? Having such key support is a winning way to enhance your judgment as a leader and to ensure the success of your business.
