Favorite Quotes

“Whether it’s your first hire or your third or fourth hire when you’re feeling overwhelmed, that’s a sign that you need to hire.”

“What in your business is making you feel heavy? Even if it’s a two-minute task that’s weighing on you. If you’re thinking about it all week long, it’s not a two-minute task anymore. It’s become a week-long task and it’s draining your energy for all of those other tasks.”

“Team culture is really important, especially when you are working with contractors because there’s the sense that they’re still running their own business. So it’s really important to do those team-building things.”
