The Moment I Hit My “Capacity”

THere was a moment when I realized I had outgrown my capacity as an owner.

I had a team that was helping to maintain daily operations, but was so steeped in it with them that I could not train for growth. My office team became “Home Care Firefighters“, running around and putting out little fires all day long.

I was stalled.

My home care agency was stalled.

Not because there was no potential for growth – just the opposite. I was stalled because I was operating at maximum capacity and I simply did not have the ability to go past that.

What I had understood of operating a home care agency had taken me down the path to a certain place, then suddenly the road just seemed to stop!

There was no fork in the road where I had to decide a direction. There was no sudden need for a ‘turnaround’ of my business model… it just… stalled.

If you are that owner today, I want to let you know you are not alone.
