Interior Design Business Podcast Episode 90: The Mini-Me Myth

How many times have you wished you had a mini-me to help you get everything done?

When you’re working at 2 a.m. and dreaming about that mini-me, you might think it’s a good time to hire someone, but in this episode of Interior Design Business, I’m going to explain why it’s not.

I’m walking you through the problems you’ll encounter if you try to hire a mini-me or jack-of-all-trades, how to avoid making a knee-jerk hire, and what to do instead.

Don’t make the same mistakes I did! Tune into this episode to find out how to build your business in a sustainable and productive way so that you can stop spending all your time on admin work and get back to what you love.
