When To Stop Rolling With The Struggles And Hire An Expert

with Caroline Wilson

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 42


Have you ever struggled through doing something for your business because you were determined to do it yourself? Did you ever looked back and evaluate all the time you wasted because you allowed yourself to spend your time instead of your money?

The truth is, there will be many occurrences in your business when spending your time costs MORE than spending your money. This is because you are not using that time serving your clients, making products, or focusing on other revenue-generating activities. 

In this episode, Caroline Wilson joins the podcast to have a real and honest conversation about the struggles and achievements she is experiencing as she continues to build the team her two businesses need for success.
