Place the power in others hands to find true freedom. Trevor Mauch
Dan Sullivan, one of the top coaches for many entrepreneurs, defined the “Ceiling of Complexity” as, long story short, an overwhelming feeling of the company running you, rather than you running the company. It is a common challenge for quickly growing companies. Life and business just got a lot more complicated than it used to be.
You might find yourself stuck with a feeling of immense pressure. The challenges and demands of running a business tend to drain you of your personal bandwidth. So what do you do?
On this episode of the CarrotCast, we’re going to discuss how to learn to manage and maintain growth. The best ways to manage the complexity of growing a business and how to replace that with simplicity.
Embrace the energy so that you are running your business or life instead of it running you.
