- If you love accounting - WATCH OUT for marketing. Outsource it or make a conscientious effort to focus on and improve your efforts at marketing.
- If you are good at marketing - WATCH OUT that your books aren't a mess.
- If you tend to take action quickly - WATCH OUT for big-picture thinking. In other words, make time to understand the overall strategy and possible long-term implications of your current business activities.
- If you are good at strategy - WATCH OUT for the details. Come up with a good way to make yourself follow-though on the day-to-day operations.
