How a Team Can Save Your Business When You Can’t Work

with Breanna Gunn

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 34


What happens to your business when you don’t work?

Maybe you’re not working because you’re taking a much-needed vacation. Maybe you’re sick. Or, maybe there is an emergency that takes you out of the office for days or weeks?

Will your business continue to thrive? Will your business even survive?

The best way to answer yes to either of these questions is to hire a team you can trust.

In this episode of the Growing Your Team podcast, Breanna Gunn joins the conversation to talk about why having a team is important, how she helps her clients find their perfect-fit team members, and what you need to do if you want to have a team that can function successfully without you.
