How to Overcome “Entrepreneur Overwhelm” and Thrive in Your Business: 3 Simple Steps

There is a false belief among Founders…

That as their company grows, so will their stress and overwhelm.

I’ve spent almost my whole life trying to convince Founders that this ISN’T true.

And it doesn’t have to be true for you either…

In fact, I just wrote an entire book about it.

It’s fear of growth that keeps us from reaching our true potential — in business and in life.

I firmly believe that.

More growth does NOT have to mean more overwhelm.

In fact, if you follow a few simple rules, rapid growth can DECREASE overwhelm.

You’ll have MORE time to do things that only YOU can do (not less).

It took me about a decade…

But I finally figured out how to minimize stress and overwhelm as a company grows.

It’s a process I call the “Buyback Loop.”

When you implement this process into your life, you’ll be amazed at how much faster tasks get done and how smoothly things run without you.

Wouldn’t it be nice to walk away from your business for a week, two weeks, or a month and come back to it STRONGER than when you left it?

The “Buyback Loop” is the first step.

Design the freedom you need to unlock your highest potential.

If you end a 10 hour day feeling like you didn’t make progress on your top projects….

If you’re working 60 hour weeks and STILL feel behind.,

If you wake up knowing that if you don’t show up, nothing gets done…

This message is for you.

I hope you can forgive me for not sending you a package wrapped in shiny paper and a silk bow..

But I think this process is the most valuable gift I could give you for the Holidays.

Wherever you are…

Whatever you’re doing…

Know that I’m grateful for you.

I’m in your corner.

Let’s rock 2023.
