When becoming an entrepreneur, the first thing is not only learning to delegate but learning to walk away from that delegating and let the person do their job. And when they don’t do their job the way you would have done it, but the job still gets done, accept it. And yes, go ahead and volunteer your ideas, but that doesn’t mean they have to implement your ideas. It’s important to learn how to compromise when you delegate.

Being a founder, entrepreneur, or business owner can have many exciting and thrilling moments. But it is also punctuated with periods of doubt, slump, and anxiety. So how does one successfully and healthily ride the highs and lows of Entrepreneurship? In this series, called “How To Successfully Ride The Emotional Highs & Lows Of Being An Entrepreneur” we are talking to successful entrepreneurs who can share stories from their experience. I had the pleasure of interviewing Jay Buckingham, founder and CEO of Buckingham Advisors, who has seen a lot of ups and downs over the past 34 years as an entrepreneur. In the early days, he knocked on doors and used a converted attic as his office. Today, he and his team provide professional financial planning, investment management, tax strategy/preparation, and business services for clients in Ohio and beyond. Jay established the firm in 1987 to provide client-centered advice, commission-free products and tailored solutions rather than the typical cookie-cutter, sales-oriented approaches used by competing entities. He has built multi-generational client relationships and a team of next-generation leaders based on the principles and philosophies revealed below.
