You are known as an expert in your field - for being the best at what you do.  Yet often the things we do so well for others we find difficult to do for ourselves.  The old 'the cobbler's children have no shoes' syndrome. 

This is especially true for those providing professional services. Take a look at your own business plan, your marketing plans, your website, your financial statements - whatever you spend so much time doing for your clients, take a moment to do it for yourself.  You may think you don't have time - that there are too many other things to do.  Make the time. Being your own customer not only gives you a new perspective on how your customers are viewing your processes and deliverables, it also makes your company better and stronger.

Make sure you are benefiting from your own wisdom!
