Today Steven is joined by Dan Handford to discuss the serial entrepreneur mindset. They dive into what are some of the things that have made the biggest difference for Dan when it comes to growing a business, the importance of bringing the right talent and the right people to work with, and how to determine that you have found the right person for the job.


Key Takeaways:

  1. A lot of entrepreneurs get into the trouble of feeling like they have to do everything themselves because they believe they can do everything better than everybody else, however, If you hire somebody to do the job that you’re doing right now, you can continue to go and grow different direction
  2. Cross-training on multiple positions is important because if somebody leaves,  you have people who know-how and are ready to take on those responsibilities 
  3. Test things before you commit fully to be able to see what is the result going to be before you put everything all in on that place
  4. Hire somebody who has already been down the path and they can lead in that direction much more quickly and more effectively
  5. Don’t think of hiring as a cost or an expense but as an investment  to get where you want to go
