What's the hidden cost of not building your team in your business? 

It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that doing everything yourself is the best option, but the truth is, it can lead to burnout and regret down the line. 

As a coach and consultant, I've seen firsthand how entrepreneurs can take on a lot, but we all have a breaking point. So, what can you do to avoid falling into over-commitment and over the cliff of burnout? 

Invest in getting client delivery off your plate. 

But I know that most people only address pain when they're in pain. That's why it's easier to sell Advil than a vitamin. 

This episode is a vitamin episode about being proactive instead of reactive. 

If you're not experiencing growing pains in your business yet, lean in - this is your vitamin. 

And if you are experiencing growing pains, turn up the volume - this is your Advil. 

Don't wait until it's too late to make a change. Let's explore the hidden cost of inaction in your business and how to take action now to invest in your business's future.

“Less is More” is how you scale a service-based business

How do I know this? I can 100% relate to where you are now.  You feel like you’re wearing too many hats and can’t do it all… 

I know that if you create a complex business that makes you feel trapped, you will never want to grow your business. You’ll do little (or big!)  things to self-sabotage growth because you don’t want to scale overwhelm; nobody does. 

I’ve been there.

I learned this lesson as the second in command of an agency. I could not turn off my brain and relax because I would worry about what was and wasn’t being done. 

 It wasn’t until I looked at the business from a productized service perspective. It gave us more bandwidth to double the revenue and sell and exit the business.  

Since then, I’ve been behind the scenes of six and seven-figure service-based businesses, helping agency owners who are at capacity get out of being stuck in service delivery to scale. 

It all starts by looking through the lens of a productized service. Download the FREE productize your service roadmap:
