“Delegation requires the willingness to pay for short term failures in order to gain long term competency.” – Dave Ramsey
No one said delegation is easy.
In fact, it’s hard and a little scary. BUT…. it’s a critical ingredient to every successful business and business OWNER if they want to keep their sanity.
So many times it’s easier to just “do it yourself” rather than take the time to train someone… especially for seemingly small and insignificant tasks.
The thing is… all of these “small tasks” add up…Read more
I freaking love that we’re talking about delegation this month… because it’s something I see SO many fitness pros struggle with. As a recovering control freak, this used to really hold me back in my business. Since I started putting a few basic practices in place to create a “fail-safe” system for delegation, things have Read more
LOVED all of your emails that I got a couple days ago when I wrote about my first rule for delegation. If you missed it, click here. Don’t go through the next part of this series until you’ve read Rule #1. Delegation is one of the most important things you can learn how to do Read more
You hired a graphic designer to create an “awesome flyer” and when you got it back, you were massively disappointed and decided a 3rd grader could have done a better job. They apparently suck and now you need to hire someone else. Or how about this… Your new admin is having trouble processing a new Read more
Did you watch the first episode this season of Shark Tank? Season 9, Episode 1. If you haven’t, find it on demand and watch it. Very first pitch- an 11-year-old boy named Carson got up and presented something he invented called a “Locker Board” …which is basically a skateboard that can fit inside his locker Read more
At 1:43pm on Saturday, I boarded a flight from Raleigh back to Orlando. I found my seat, put my laptop under the seat in front of me, and started listening to one of my books on Audible. There were a TON of kids on the flight, and it was incredibly loud in there. I fly Read more
Oh, this is going to be GOOD… Yesterday I talked about the “Magical Words” SWIPE FOLDER I started using in my business. “Swipe Folders” have been invaluable to me in my business over the years. Basically- it’s a collection of images, content, screenshots, etc… that I’ve saved in giant (but organized) folders. They’re always there Read more
I’ve been reading a LOT lately. At the moment, I’ve been obsessed with reading books by some of the best and most legendary copywriters in the world…. like John Carlton, Eugene Schwartz, Gary Halbert, and the list goes on. And you know what one of the things I noticed that’s CONSISTENT in all of their Read more
I had a FRONT row seat to the keynote presentation from Darren Hardy last weekend. It was a message that EVERYONE needed to hear. He spoke all about how uber-successful people (like Steve Jobs, Warren, Buffett, Richard Branson) aren’t successful because of what they do….it’s because of what they DON’T DO. They are HYPER-FOCUSED. He Read more
This past weekend was huge for me. Most of you probably don’t know this, but speaking in front of large groups of people scares the sh$$ out of me. I’d much rather jump out of an airplane (done it) or swim with sharks (done it), than stand up in front of a large group of Read more
