To understand that your trade marks and other intellectual property is are very valuable business asset. Money spent protecting them is an investment.
To delegate out mundane and time consuming business activities e.g. bookkeeping. The value of your time spent on working on and developing your business s much more valuable than the cost saved of carrying out mundane tasks your self.
