WALDO PONDRAY WARREN
THE ONE-MAN BUSINESS
It seldom safe, wise or necessary for one man In a business
IT to have a complete monopoly of all the knowledge on
,i vital portion of the business. His Incapacity or absence
for any cause might put the whole enterprise under a severe
strain which could be avoided If others knew the principal
poirti if the work. To do otherwise would be like running a
business In an unsafe building without Insurance.
What one man knows about a vital portion of the work Is
often the clilof asset of a business. Take that man away and
there Is not another man In the concern who can fill his place,
and it may be a long time before another could be found who
could take up the work.
One obstae'e that Is often encountered Is that such men
may try to hold a monopoly by keepng others from learning
anyO mg about their work. And this spirit In Itself is the
best af reasons why the work should be learned by another
man, for it indicates that the monopoly It maintained
strictly in the interest of the one holding It, even though it Is
the above him that has given him the opportunity
to learn much that he does know. Aa a rule a man
growk more by teaching others to do part c h'a work thin by
having such a monopoly, for It relieves him of commonplace
duties and encbies him to delve Into new things.
