“I think that if you’re looking to grow the business into a big substantial business, that maybe you want to step away from, or maybe you want to sell at some point, then it really is just a matter of getting the right person in as soon as possible as long as the business can sustain it.” – 3:20 – Hollie Power
“You want to make sure that you’ve got all your ducks in a row, that you’re truly ready, that you’ve got the time to commit to bringing somebody in and making sure they’re going to work in alignment with your business, that you can financially sustain them, and that you’ve got enough clients coming through. When you get to that point, you’re ready to start working on building a bigger, stronger business.” – 5:30 – Hollie Power
“The time will probably never be perfect. The time is seldom ever perfect to do anything. So you have to go for it at the point where, if you’re working every hour that is being sent to you because you’re trying to do the treatments, as well as all of those other things that come with running a business, then you need some help.” – 7:15 – Ryan Power
“You don’t typically pick up an autobiography for a billionaire and chapter 1 is ‘I tried this thing, and it worked. The end.’ It never ever happens like that. They go through all sorts of stuff to get where they’re going to go. A lot of the time you don’t hear about that necessarily, because it doesn’t become relevant until the success comes at the end.” – 11:40 – Ryan Power
“If you’ve ever heard any of my stuff, you will know what I always talk about and that is that bonds build businesses. We bond with people who we like and connect with, and we can only connect with somebody if we get to know them on a little bit more of a personal level” – 15:15 – Hollie Power
“There’s no harm in you just sharing links to a local newspaper’s website where the stories are, and then add your own introduction or your own spin on it. You don’t have to come up with all of the content yourself, there is a share button for a reason, right?” – 20:05 – Ryan Power
“Some people struggle to delegate because they think that these tasks need to be for a full time hire, and they think ‘I can’t afford a full time administrator, they’re not going to be generating any money, that’s just a silly idea’. The thing about a virtual assistant is they’re self employed, they work for lots of different businesses, and they usually manage a certain number of hours worth of work for you.” – 23:15 – Hollie Power
