It may be a little harder to carry out, but if you’re even remotely thinking you’d like to sell your business someday, you have to think about it. An investor looking to purchase a business does not want to buy into something that requires them to work 40+ hour weeks. They want a high-level business that is run by high-level management that allows them to be strategists and investors.
The first step in buying back your time? Hire an executive assistant. Someone to take day-to-day tasks off your plate. Decide what your time is worth, and invest your time into things that only you can do. Parse other tasks out to people you trust to carry out the work.
