About This Episode

Outsourcing doesn’t have to be a chore… it’s actually one of my go to when it comes to growing and scaling my business.  The step that I recommend taking before hiring a more permanent team (aka employees).

But before you go on a team building spree, you have to know the 3 tests that defines an independent contractor relationship…and pass them.

Once you’ve passed the test…all systems are a go.  Go forth and team build to grow. Get back into your zone of genius, your core activities… by doing less (yourself) so that you can play more.
