I was fired from the company I founded!!!

I was the founder and CEO of a profitable and growing two year old business. I felt the pressure for growth and realized I was in over my head in certain areas. I sought advice from one of our Board members. He was helpful; he told me to get better people into the organization so that I wouldn’t have to micro-manage and so that we had the core competencies to grow the company.

We functioned ok as a management team, but I found we had issues with too much talk and too few decisions. I did like everyone to agree before we moved forward with anything. Growth rates began to slow and the Board was getting nervous.

Then one day, a Board member came into the office and told me they weren’t satisfied with my performance. I was fired from my own company!!
