Today our expert guest is Mike Michalowicz, the author of Profit First, Surge, The Pumpkin Plan, and his most recent book Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself.


You’ve likely heard someone ask the question, “if you had all the money in the world, what would you do?” It’s an interesting question, but it assumes that the only way to achieve that is to have all the money in the world.


Mike likes to pose a complementary question: If you had no money in the world, what would you do?


And when the answer aligns to both of those questions – what you would do with financial freedom and what your vocation is – you’ve found something special.


So today we discuss how you can create a business that is your vocation, designing it to run by itself by optimizing task delegation.


The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway


“I challenge everyone listening today to schedule a four-week consecutive vacation. Not tomorrow, not next month, but maybe 1.5 to 2 years out. That’s the limit.


“Why? If you have a full physical and physical digital disconnect for four consecutive weeks, that’s the ultimate test for a business that can run itself …  So declare that four-week vacation, be courageous, and you’ll feel a mindshift happen immediately.”
