1. We get tired and don’t want to keep doing the same thing over and over
2. We see opportunity that we know we can’t get to on our own.
3. We want a lifestyle business that continues to run without us having to do everything every day.
I’ve been in this business for 12+ years and talk with 1,000’s of people all the time. And believe me everyone gets to this point.
But hiring people is scary…
Hope everyone is doing amazing.
I obviously haven’t had a lot of time to post lately. But, someone I know asked me to do a quick off the cuff interview and I took him up on it.
