How to move from lead-doer to small business leader

By Nina Kaufman, Esq.

Listen to the Episode Below:

I only want to focus on 3 things, said Caryn. But who will do the rest?

Burned out, tired, and constantly pulled away from her family, Caryn Kopp reached her limit. Her company, Kopp Consulting, helps clients get new clients. Get meetings with high-level corporate decision makers. So successful, she was continually being squeezed. Because she did it so well. But how could she teach what she knew intuitively—her sales messaging skills—to others?

Drawing that line in the sand got her thinking.

About evolving into being the leader of her company, not just the lead “doer” of her company.
