Don’t Create a “Job” for Yourself

The number one mistake people make is that they create a job for themselves.

What does that mean? Today we’re talking about it.

Creating a job for yourself is better than the alternative (working for someone else), but it also means you’re stuck. When you take a vacation, you don’t get paid. When it’s time to retire, your business goes away.

I had someone about a year ago ask me how to sell their business because they were moving. I asked if she had an email list of her patients or any automated systems at all. She said no. Well, she didn’t have much of a business to sell then. When you’re your entire business, there’s no growth, nothing to sell.

Conversely, I just interviewed Sarah Duvall on my podcast—she built a cash practice and sold it after five years. How’d she do it? She had a list of patients, knew where they were coming from, created systems, and hired an employee. (She actually ended up selling it to that employee!)

That’s how you do it. You stop trading your time for money. You start to feel comfortable hiring other people. I know it’s scary, but unless you create systems and grow with employees, you won’t have a business to sell.

My goal is to help half of the 300,000 people in my city of Greensboro. I can’t do that alone, and you can’t either. Take the leap and don’t just create a job for yourself.

Take the leap here!
