Growing Your Business with Contractors

By Nina Kaufman, Esq.

Listen to the Episode Below:


Do you want your business to be manageable or scalable? That’s the question I address on today’s podcast. Sometimes we want to control absolutely everything about our business and then a few weeks later we’re wondering why we’re exhausted and not expanding like we should. That’s because you can never grow if you focus only on your ability to manage everything.

Today’s guest – Jane Freedman, Esq. – is a business attorney and angel investor who uses a business model for her firm that lets her let go, and turn work over to a scalable network of service providers and contractors she can hire on a project-by-project basis. Her challenge: “Why do it small when you can do it big?”  Do you accept?
