At some point, even the most hardy entrepreneurs need a vacation. However, many business owners (especially Superstar ones!) have built their business around themselves to the point where it would all fall apart if they walked away. Although this is often a necessary stage in the development of a business, if it goes on for too long, it can lead to us feeling overworked, overwhelmed, and burnt out.
It doesn't have to be this way!
Enter Mike Michalowicz. In this episode, Mike is back to discuss his new book, Clockwork, which is all about automating, systemizing and scaling a business, so that you don't have to manage. You'll learn some key strategies to extricate yourself from your business so you can spend more time on the things that really inspire you (and even take a long vacation every once in a while!)
Mike brings so much value every time we talk, and this interview was especially powerful. Enjoy!
