One of my friends who has a great business is looking for a job. For many people, "having a great business" and "looking for a job" are incompatible. If you had a great business, you wouldn't be looking for a job, right? Wrong. They're looking for a job because they've realized that their business isn't the right container for their skillset. Some consulting gigs over the last year have shown them what they can do with the right team setup. But their business niche isn't sufficiently large enough to build that kind of team without completely changing their business model. Even if they changed the model, they still wouldn't get to do what they do best.
