How driven are you as a business owner?
You’d probably give yourself a 10, wouldn’t you?
You’re too focused on the results so you do better at everything because you want to feel safe.
And when things don’t go exactly your way, you tend to be too hard on yourself.
This pursuit of better actually ends up ruining your happiness – in other words – self-sabotage.

Are you handling everything about your business on your own that you feel like your business isn’t able to grow as much as you wanted it to?
Now, you can either choose to go all the way down the rabbit hole or finally free yourself up from all the stress by hiring an EA.
However, you have to be able to train your EA to read your mind so they can have complete authority to speak on your behalf.
Hugo Santillan was an Argentinian boxer who died from sustained injuries during a match. Had his trainer known when to stop the fight, then things would have turned out differently.
