Is Now The Right Time To Hire?

by | Aug 29, 2019 | Blog, Get More Done, Growth, How to Clone Yourself, How to Clone Yourself, Modern CEO Podcast

In our Planathon Group – oh yes, our annual Planathon is coming soon!!! – one of the questions that recently came up is the question of: how do I know if it is time to hire.

I’m coming at you from Addis Ababa Ethiopia and sharing: 4 signs that it might be time for you to hire.

First, we’ll go back in time to 2011 when I made my first hire in my business. Then we’ll slowly journey back to present day as we explore:

  • Signs that it may be time for you to hire
  • How to differentiate between leading your business and running your business
  • What it is to be a visionary
  • How to communicate work with team members (and maybe even husbands… ;)) to bring the vision to life
  • If you are stuck in a middle-class mindset around hiring
  • What self-made millionaires and billionaires know about hiring that you may want to tap into!

I can’t wait to time travel together.
