Get on my team or get on. Isn’t that what you want to say to partners, staff, or contractors who can't seem to get on the same page as you. They always got a better way of doing something that what you originally laid out. You have taken the time, the money, the energy, and a good portion of your life to create this business. Now everybody and their mommy got a better way of doing it than you. Though they have not invested nearly as much time, money, or energy they seem to know everything. You are tired of going round and round about the direction of the business or project. With all that said you still have to be cordial and professionally present, “Get on my team or get on.”

There can be a backlash, but it's better to have a peace of mind while struggling alone than to be stressed-out with people who don’t listen. It's frustrating to see that people can't or don't follow simple instructions, or as we southerners say, “just hard headed.”
