Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”

What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

I would have had hired a fulltime, live-in nanny (especially if you're a single mom) – don't live with constant mother guilt.

What one strategy or “recipe” would compound into big wins for business owners?

Respect and pay attention to your employees – trust them and allow them to grow.

How to exceed expectations and add the most value?

An individual would be equipped to succeed – and you have to work with them to get them there.

What strategy would you recommend new business owners focus on to best ensure success?

  1. Don't cut corners – you are responsible for the quality of your service
  2. Find an environment where you can focus
  3. Make sure that any contract you are involved in has been vetted by an attourney
  4. Get a DBA – you really do need it
