As we approach the holidays, it’s time to take your game to its next level. Expand your capacity today. It starts with NO EXCUSES and also includes these five tips:

1. Hire an assistant or a virtual assistant. Stop doing anything that is under your hourly rate.

2. Start writing and create original content. Hire a copywriter/editor to help you.

3. Have a dedicated marketing person or outsource it. Stay in front of clients.

4. Create a list of everything you do IN your business for three days. Start delegating it ALL on day four.

5. Track your time every day for one week. See where you are wasting time. You will discover lots of free or wasted time. This is where you can expand your capacity.
