Captivating Quotes from this Episode:



“My first day of hiring people was nervous. But then those employees I built relationships with, and eventually those employees ran my business when I wasn’t even there. So it was a worthwhile investment. And it’s an entrepreneurial risk at first, but that’s an essential skill set every entrepreneur should have”



Businesses fail when the people that are driving vision, or doing the executive or their visionary get into the weeds, and doing tactical, if not operational things when they need to remain strategic, and focus on the big goals.



If you can leverage an employee, and you have what I call a multiplier effect, which is another reason why you hire someone, your business will grow like that. And the multiplier effect is like, when I go back to hiring someone, why am I hiring him? Because I can multiply my revenue, because I can leverage the employee. And sometimes that’s harder to do with a contractor, 



And I can still look back at those brands that I was an employee for, it’s a man, I helped build that brand. And I couldn’t have done that as a contractor, because that just wasn’t my motivation. The motivation was to do X, Y, Z job and get paid for it, versus being an employee is like I helped that person build that firm, like I helped that visionary or that entrepreneur be successful. And that’s like the badge of honor that an employee gets to take with them, always
