Chris Ducker on Delegating for Tasks, Roles and Team Building

Chris Ducker on Delegating for Tasks, Roles and Team Building

Chris Ducker talks delegation, virtual assistants, and staffing for tasks, roles and team building.

Chris Ducker was working 14-hour days, six days a week, spending very little time with family and working ‘in’ his business, instead of ‘on’ it and was tired in every possible way. He’s come a long way since then, creating the new business Virtual Staff Finder, the New Business Podcast, and his new book – Virtual Freedom: How to Work with Virtual Staff to Buy More Time, Become More Productive, and Build Your Dream Business. He’s also released a podcast series that corresponds to the new book.

In this episode, Chris and Erik cover:

  • The false believe that you can fill every role in a growing business
  • Super hero syndrome
  • Chris’ definition of the word Entrepreneur = To provide answers to questions and solutions to problems
  • Being a 16 hour a day, 7 day a week entrepreneur doesn’t make you a more successful entrepreneur.

Chris’s 3 lists:

  • The things you hate doing
  • The things you can’t do
  • The things you shouldn’t be doing

You need to do only the things that you are uniquely qualified to do.—@jaybaerClick To Tweet
