“I need your help!” were the first words out of John’s mouth when I walked into his office recently. “We’re starting a new business and I want you to help us figure this out.”
As I looked at John, my first thought was: “Oh my god, he hasn’t got this business running properly yet, and he’s already onto the next one.”
However, the words that came out of my mouth were: “Interesting – tell me more.”
As John described his new venture, I realized I had heard this story more than once.
I’ve worked with John for the past 10 months and he has implemented some systems that reduced his stress load and improved his cash flow, and this allowed him to hire some great people. The result was that he had more time on his hands, and his entrepreneurial brain was working on the next business idea.
