Over 10 years ago, I nearly had a breakdown that cost me my engagement to my fiancée.
So, what happened?
I was working waaaaay too much. I was afraid that if I didn’t pull 70 – 80+ hour weeks, my business would come crashing down.
In reality, I sucked at hiring people.
That’s all it was.
I didn’t know how to assess my business and identify the areas that needed the most support, areas that I could hire people to fill.
But once I eventually learned that skill? It turned everything around.
I cannot emphasize this enough:
If you want to grow your business, learn how to hire your way out of problems.
You won’t grow if you can’t get this right.
I’ve got a video for you on exactly how to find the next person you NEED to hire in your business.

This is my original take on the problem, backed by my own experiences, studies and observations from my high-level coaching clients.
Pay attention to these 5 in the video:
- Time Study ← It’ll help with more than just hiring
- Hire An Assistant
- One Thing
- Avoid Pain
- Value & Energy
I’ve encountered businesses that keep hiring new people… but fail to fix their biggest problems.
Every time you hire someone new, it should be based on a thorough assessment.
You need to hire the people that make a difference, and not those that won’t.
I regularly meet with a group of high-level software founders. Everyone in the group is running a $10M+ ARR business. Big companies… with big problems.
Their ability to identify a bottleneck in business and quickly fill it can cost them millions.
As a group, this is one of the strategies that we focus on most.
If you’re not at $10 million a year, don’t panic – that’s the point of this video, to bring those high-level insights to you.
