Good episode? Give it some love!
Do you want to take your business to the next level? Taking a small company and scaling it into a big organisation is far from easy, but it is possible to unlock the potential within your company to put it on the path to success.

As the founder of a startup you are constantly wearing several hats; a CEO hat; a marketer hat, a salesperson hat, a web dev hat; an HR hat - the list is endless. But one person can only wear so many hats before one, if not more of them, start to slip. Are you in danger of wearing too many hats [1]? Knowing when to step back and give someone else a hat to wear is a vital lesson if you are going to skyrocket your business.

Over the past 20 years UKFast has grown from a two person startup in a back bedroom to a £53 million turnover business. In this episode I share the secrets I have learned about delegation, finding the right person for the job and developing the next generation of superstars from within your business.

Key takeaways:

Why small business owners struggle to run big businesses
When you need to pass someone else a hat and share the load
Should you develop talent from within or employ big-hitters?
Why incredible people leave a business
Why you should hire people who are better than you
