Episode Overview

One of the challenges of being an entrepreneur is that it is very easy to work MORE than you did at a traditional job.  When we became entrepreneurs, we realized that it would take a lot of work upfront, but we also realized that by setting up the right systems, we could drastically reduce the amount of time that it takes us to run the business.

So today, in the first of a small series of podcasts, we are going to discuss how we run our retail wine and liquor store by spending only a few hours a month on it.  Whether or not you have a retail store, you will gain valuable information into how to create systems and outsource aspects of your business to “buy your time back”.
