If you were to draw a picture that visually represents your role in your business, what would it look like? Are you at the top of a traditional Christmas-tree-like organizational chart, or are you stuck in the middle of your business, like a hub in a bicycle wheel?  As anyone knows who's tried to fly United when O’Hare Airport has been hit by a snowstorm, a hub-and-spoke model is only as strong as the hub.  The moment the hub is overwhelmed, the entire system fails.
