Nicole, I am hiring you because I want more time to play tennis and relax with my wife and son. At the same time, I want to take my business to even higher income levels.
At this point, I’m thinking “Add some MORE zeros to his income –SWEETNESS!”
As we were talking, I asked who I’d be working with, wondering who his staff members were that I’d interact with, never for a second imagining his response.
I found out that he was doing it ALL himself! Now, I was then and am still a HUGE fan of Jimmy’s, so I certainly am not criticizing. Heck, he’s built an amazing business, and is incredibly focused and manages his time better than anyone that I know. I learn from him each and every day. He’s like Superman!
However, at the time I was thinking “He’s sooooo gonna LOVE working with me!” 😉 You see I had a few tricks up my sleeve.
As a busy affiliate manager and internet marketer, I believe in automation and delegation. And, we were about to put much of his business on autopilot.After a few weeks of working through Jimmy’s wish list, we chatted again.
Me: “What would you like me to start working on next?”
Jimmy: “You’re done?! How did you get so much stuff done in so little time?”
Me: “I had my girls do a lot of it.”
Jimmy: “Your girls?”
Me: “I have a team of moms who specialize in different things and I pay them to do a lot of the non-private stuff.”
You see, I have found that the fastest way that I can free up MY time is to delegate to others.
Heck, I REFUSE to be a slave to my business, too. So, it doesn’t make sense to take the chains from Jimmy and strap them to myself, now does it? 😉
Jimmy is on the road — a lot. Oftentimes, I email him and get this back “Here’s the info you asked for. By the way, we’re having fun in (insert city of the week — St. Louis, NYC, Destin, etc.). Ever been there?”
As for me, I took a four week holiday this summer to spend time with my family. And, no, I didn’t have a Blackberry strapped to my side. I didn’t even have internet or cell phone access in the cabin where I stayed. Did my business suffer? Nah! Did Jimmy’s? Nope. Not a bit. Business boomed.
