A pivotal moment in the entrepreneurial journey is when you make the decision to stop doing everything yourself, and start trusting, and training, others to step up and do more. For me, that point came in 2011, when our company, Acceleration Partners, was doing about $1 million in revenue and I joined EO. Though the company was growing, I was doing everything and was burnt out.
