You, of course, without ever submitting a resume, completing a job application, undergoing a reference check or interviewing for the position you hired yourself into. Guess who the last person fired will be? You, again, regardless of your performance review, job skills, aptitude or attitude you’ll probably hold onto the position even as your business start up sinks below the financial horizon.
Chances are you’re a perfect fit for the job of small business start up owner-manager. But, it might be a good idea to assess the job requirements and make every effort to equip your self to perform them well.
