Does the idea of having to hand off work to other people make you break out in a cold sweat?

Do you ever find yourself thinking “it will be faster if I just do it myself”?

*raises hand sheepishly*

The struggle is real, my friends. 

As someone who has a somewhat challenging relationship with delegation, it’s a muscle that I have to consciously work on building. 

Thankfully, I’ve had someone guiding me along the way and giving me a gentle nudge when needed.

That’s why in this episode I sat down for a chat with leadership coach Bekka Prideaux to dive into the dynamics of delegation. We talk about how to improve your delegations skills, why delegation isn’t just about having a team, and so much more.

Despite how those FB ads make it look, running an agency and being the boss isn't all sitting back and watching the cash roll in while your team gets the job done.

No matter how much you *think* you know about what the reality is, like so much else in life, you don’t know what you don’t know until you’re actually in the thick of it. 

That’s why in this episode, I’m sharing 7 things I wish I knew before starting an agency, including a few things that may be unexpected.

Do you ever feel like you don’t have enough hours in the day? Like you’re already working too much but could still be doing more? 

Then there’s the fact that your services are in demand and you would take on even more work if you were able. 

You WANT to grow your business, but driving yourself into the ground isn’t a solid strategy.

Right about now, running the agency business model may seem like reeeeally good option. 

But is it? 

In this episode, we’re diving into the ins and outs of the agency business model, to help you answer the question….is it right for you?

You know those low cost products all over your social media feeds making big promises? 

 

You may like them, or you may find them annoying, but there’s a very specific strategy around them. And a lot of those strategies are a big problem from my point of view.

So I got curious and bought 9 of these products to analyze them. 

In this episode and essay, I’m sharing my findings from that analysis I did after spending $285 - the good, the bad and the really scammy.

I’m doing the work so you don’t have to, and then sharing what you need to know.
