Today I have just put the finishing touches to the job specification for Managing Director of our company, Mission Possible.  It's an exciting time, preparing to hand over the reins of something I have worked hard to build, and hoping that the strong foundations will support and help a new person leverage even more opportunities for the business.

I am not leaving but believe that my strengths and talents can be balanced by someone who can bring complementary skills and experience – and different ideas too!  Research shows that getting the right people in your team is the biggest and most critical investment that a small business can make.

Too many small businesses suffer because the owner is reluctant to give up control and consequently it can limit the growth of a business and the ability of the employees to maximise their strengths. So, with a deep breath, I have taken the plunge and now wait to see what happens…..

Will keep you posted!
