Many of my own students and coaching clients get stuck when trying to hire help for their business.
They are online digital CEO's that have very successful courses, memberships, or coaching practices and yet...
They're still trying to do WAY too much all by themselves.
They know that they need to bring in help.
They have even tried to hire different people.
But...they just keep getting frustrated with not finding the right person.
Finding the right person for your team is actually a really a big topic. But let me give you two important tips that should help you get started!
As you may know, I was the co-executive producer for one of the top gardening series on PBS for nine years. Doing this job meant that I learned ninja skills for project managing complicated productions and an entire film crew.

BUT... when you dive deeper with people, it is perfectly alright to put a price tag on your help. Your help is valuable. But you must value it enough to charge for it.
Chances are, you have way too many things on your "to-do" list. Am I right?
I've spent years studying productivity. And one thing I know for sure...It's NOT about doing more in less time. Which means...that LONG to-do list is probably not going to get completed.
Let me tell you a secret...
The trick to being productive is pre-planning and having the RIGHT things on your to-do list.
I know, that's not sexy. But it works.
Here's a few of my pro tips for being productive in your business. They work for me and they work for my coaching clients. I'm sure you'll find that they work for you too!
1. The night before, pick the top three items on your to-do list that you need to accomplish the next day: If you're working on a goal, pick something that would move you towards your goal. If you have a special project you're working on, pick something that would take you one step closer on your project. We can more...
