Your business is NOT about you and your unique abilities - it's about expansion and growth!

There's always a lot of 'biz admin' and weekly housekeeping to be done in maintaining your business - but what about growth?

If you don't have enough time to serve your clients, keep your business functioning AND fuel massive growth at the same time, you need to outsource and hire. 

Reed Davis, founder of Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and businessman for over 40 years, joins me on the show firstly to do a quick review of what's been happening since he last appeared on this show...

(And go behind-the-scenes of the FDN Facebook Live campaigns)...

As well as covering all aspects of hiring, training and managing a team of employees to help you grow and expand your operations. 

No - you don't need a huge budget to get started, nor do you need to fill a full 40-hour work week for your employees. 

You can (and pebbly should) start small in this area - so Reed and I covered...
