Small business owners deserve a 4-week vacation! Unfortunately, too many entrepreneurs think that’s impossible and way out of reach for them. I’m on a mission to change that mindset and help small business owners take back their lives from their businesses. This is what we do at Tap the Potential every single day. We are in a series of podcast episodes around this topic to show entrepreneurs how to take a fully unplugged 4-week vacation.


In last week’s episode, we talked about the mindset shift that has to happen for you to prepare your business to grow and sustain itself if you step away for one week, two weeks, or that 4-week vacation. We also discussed the dynamic of over-functioning/under-functioning with your team, along with delegating tasks and focusing on $ 10,000-an-hour activities. If you missed Part 1, go back and listen now! Today’s topic is how to set your team up for success, which is a key piece to your 4-week vacation. Let’s get started!


Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.


Show Highlights:


  • The key mindset in setting our A-players up for success (“A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.” –Zig Ziglar)

  • Four components to set your team up to make decisions effectively without you: 

    • Your Compelling, Vivid Vision
