Simplify & Multiply

One of Many of Mark’s Actionables:

1) If you don’t have enough money to hire somebody, you’re undercharging. You need to raise your rates. If you can’t raise your rates, add more value. Bring more to the party.
2) Do a workflow analysis, figure out where you’re spending your time and where you’re not generating money, and outsource that.
3) Go sit down with somebody who has a business like yours, and ask them how they did it.
