What if you could free up 30 hours in your work—all while helping your business reach new revenue heights?

Many entrepreneurs know what it’s like to feel constantly busy, putting out fires, and only able to work on the things directly in front of them rather than the work that matters most.

They believe that every great visionary needs a great operations counterpart and that by pairing the right people you can unleash their full potential. We discuss why every CEO needs a great 2nd-In-Command, how to find the right person for you, and how to identify if you might make a good 2nd-In-Command yourself.
