At some point you have to put the right people in place to make good decisions on your behalf, and motivate them by making them stake holders in the company. I now have 2 partners with some ownership in the company and they have done much to lower my stress.

I have no illusions I won't be involved daily (hourly) anytime in the near future, but the mark of a good manager is when things continue to run smoothly if you step away... My role should be business development and strategic direction, not day to day running of the business
