    Speaking of all the hats one person must wear to get one job done reminds me of what Michael Gerber says in his book, The E-Myth – where the E stands for entrepreneur. Most entrepreneurs run around trying to fill so many roles or hats, that they endanger the whole of what they are trying to do. The point of his book is the importance of developing systems for one’s business. I would bet the same principle could apply here – the producer, to be successful will have to come up with systems to free him/herself to get the job done. There’s a lot more to it, but that’s the birds-eye view.
