There are really 3 secrets to taking your business to the next level:
- Knowing where you are currently i.e. Business Freedom Timeline
- Knowing where you want to go
- Working on the right activities to get you there
If you want freedom from the day-to-day running of your business, you have to grow and run it like a CEO – in other words, you want to become the leader in your business versus your business running your life!
In this episode, I clarify the difference between a Chief Everything Officer and a small business CEO.
Then, I explain why and how you should run your small business like a CEO and how doing so will help scale your business to exponential heights (minus the loss of sanity!).
Listen to this episode to find out:
