The pros and cons of being a Power Napper…
You’ve created an incredible business from scratch.
The fact that you have clients or customers, you have products to sell, and you created a business to begin with speaks VOLUMES to your determination, stamina, and worth ethic as an owner.
You created something out of nothing and that can’t be understated.
You control every part of your business.
Because you are involved with every part of the business, you can ensure the absolute quality of your product or services. You don’t have to worry about the failures of someone else if you are doing everything in your business.
But EVERYTHING falls to you 24/7.
You have serious clockworking potential.
Even hiring 1 more A-team player or implementing a new process will give you SO MUCH time back. When you are a Power Napper, even an additional hour’s break will feel like a 5-star resort vacation at this point.
Making time to clockwork your business will give you MORE time.
You are stuck in “hustle and grind” mode to get traction.
As a Power Napper, every step forward in your business has to come from you. Any day you take a break, the business stalls to a halt or even moves backward! Scaling your business can feel more like a trudge than a sprint.
Power Nappers tend to follow a burnout cycle of late nights, resentment, then exhaustion.
Your problems are your business’s problems.
Every time you get a cold, your business gets one too. Power Nappers are so involved in their businesses that without them, the business will fall apart. Any disruption to your ability to show up at work can be a catastrophe for your bottom line.
And unfortunately, even business owners get sick, need surgery, or need a break.
Your business could quickly become a burden instead of an asset.
Without you to keep the business growing and profitable, in uncertain times a business can turn from an asset to a big liability and burden, and your family’s livelihood could be put in jeopardy.
You need your business to be able to run without you.

The Bucketlist Bombshells
Running a business as a solo founder is hard, so it is nice to get input from someone outside my company. My team members have been happy to take over some of the roles that I have been holding onto and doing by myself. I’m more conscious about the changes that I need to implement each week in order for my business to depend less on me.
Founder at Ombu Labs, The Lean Software Boutique
I wanted my team to run like clockwork, without my constant input, and now we’re well on our way to making that a reality. The content was killer and it was just the right amount, not overwhelming. The best part of it was that everything was very actionable + transformational.
