I suck at delegating. But I’m trying hard to learn how to do it well! And I’m a firm believer that it is critically important for entrepreneurs to learn this skill — perhaps especially those of us in creative professions.

(By the way, “control enthusiast” is Joss Whedon‘s phrase. He says he doesn’t like the term “control freak,” but he’s happy with “control enthusiast.” I dig that.)
P.S. I’ve just noticed that Grace also posted Part Three in my series: “That Magic Moment: When to Make Your First Hire” (inspired by a comment posted here… so if you have burning HR-related questions — even if you’re your only employee — please leave them in the comments!).
