Actually I'm an independent software consultant my clients are IT department of large organisations in my area. They add me as a team member to help them with their delivery as a new " resource ". Basically , I'm working in the business most of the time as I'm executing the work, now I would like to work on the business and grow it. How could I possible get more clients, hire people and delegate the workload.
I'm reading a book called, "Disciplined Entrepreneurship: 24 Steps to a Successful Startup" written by Bill Aulet.
The 24 steps are broken down into six categories:
1: Who is your customer?
2: What can you do for your customer?
3: How does your customer acquire your product?
4: How do you make money off your product?
5: How do you design and build your product?
6: How do you scale your business
Your technically asking a good number of questions and I'm thinking this book might be a good starting point for you.
