3 Things Entrepreneurs Should Never Do Themselves


There are three main areas where you’re costing yourself time, money, customers, and leads, and I bet you don’t even realize it. As entrepreneurs, especially when we’re starting out, we try to cut corners and get scrappy, but I’ve experienced first-hand why it’s so important to call in the pros on things like taxes, paid advertisements, and copywriting. 

In this episode, I break down what opportunity cost is and how to avoid those painful lessons by relying on experts to help you out, even on things that you consider to be in your zone of genius.
