Are You a Visionary or CEO? Part 2
Show Notes

You may want the CEO title because of the status it holds, however, when you start to break down the roles and responsibilities of a CEO, you may uncover that you fit best as the visionary of your business. This week’s episode 73 of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries is part 2 of are you a visionary or a CEO?

Have you ever felt like you were WAY too busy, stressed out, burnt out, and overwhelmed, so you were advised to delegate some tasks to take things off your plate and free up some time? Except, maybe it didn't work. If getting out of the day-to-day in your business was as simple as hiring more people, then why are you still feeling overwhelmed and burned out? You are not alone! Sometimes, simply delegating tasks doesn’t work and instead shifts your workload from “doing” to “managing.”

I invite you to use the exercise that our own C-Suite clients use to take the first step in turning your team into a well-oiled, self-managed machine- and get you out of the delegation catch-22. Download the exercise here to get started!

In this episode of Female Founders Breaking Boundaries, I’m sharing the importance of understanding your role in your business and doing the tasks associated with it and actionable steps you can take right now to figure out where you may need to fill in the gaps of your business and hire the right person for the right role. Some of the things I cover in this episode are:

  • Celebrating Karen Cahn of ifund women for bringing investors and women owned businesses together in a marketplace for coaching, support, and access to capital and connection. 
  • Announcing that C-Suite Boutique has officially become an approved partner of ifund women and will be providing support to women owned businesses. 
  • A few misconceptions about being a CEO and why you may not actually want that title. 
  • The innate abilities a CEO must have in order to succeed. 
  • What you need to know in order to hire the right integrator or another leadership role into your business. 
  • My deep thoughts (& acknowledgments) to Patagonia for putting ownership of the company into the Earth’s hands by creating a trust to combat climate change. 

Before you hire, it is important to know how much help you need and in what areas you most need that help and as always, we are more than happy to sit down with you to figure that out!
