Visionaries Vs. Integrators: This Is Why You’re Stuck And Frustrated


There are two types of people in business: the visionaries who see the future and know where they want to go with a product or service, and the integrators who actually get them there. No one can be both, and in today’s episode, I explain why it’s more profitable to hire someone who complements your natural skill set instead of trying to do everything by yourself. I also provide examples of how you can get someone on board, even if you can’t provide them with a salary upfront.
