As I’ve repeatedly admitted, the inability to delegate earlier in my entrepreneurial journey was my achilles heel. I worked too hard, paid too little attention to my family, and generally wasn’t happy.
The only saving grace I can muster is that it seems just about every independent business person goes through this. You either learn to successfully delegate, or you go get a job.
This is the focus of today’s episode. It was sparked by several smart questions from Unemployable listeners:
- What challenges have you faced with learning to manage people?
- How do you prepare for transitioning from solo to bringing on outside contractors?
- How do you manage the hiring process in a virtual company, while making sure they are a culture fit?
Plus, we talk about dealing with an unsupportive spouse, raising money, and the movement in content marketing away from creating toward “documenting.”
