3 Takeaways


1. How to fail at hiring the right people. Hiring, whether in person or remote, can be daunting, especially if you don’t have a clear vision of who you actually need. I’ve failed multiple times with hiring and learned a lot from it.

2. How to become a bottleneck in your company. A lot of entrepreneurs become the block in their business, and everything stops if they stop. I’ve learned how to remove myself from our company through systems that let me travel and work anywhere and know that things will be fine.

3. How to unlock your company from working in a physical office. A lot of people think that it would be hard to shift from a physical office to working remotely, and currently, with the shift it feels inevitable. I’ve grown our company completely remotely, and have the tools and systems to make sure things get done even when employees are working from home.
