A common but wholly bewildering problem founders face is apathy among their employees. As a successful founder, I'd be willing to bet you are wired to drive forward. You probably don't have an off button (at least while you're awake). Employees can be a whole different story.
Great leaders distinguish themselves from bad or even just good leaders by their ability to make the right decisions at the right time. There is a mystique that surrounds a great leader's ability to make great decisions, and I see it all the time in founders.
When I start working with a founder and their team, one of the first issues we have to address is a big one: How they approach growth. Typically, up until this point, they have grown by selling as much as they can and then scrambling to keep up. But this strategy is about to expire.
You did it! You started a business with nothing more than a dream and a willingness to roll up your sleeves. You worked hard, really hard, and the business grew. You're a stand-out success by everyone else's standards. So why are you not jumping for joy?
