In this episode, Aaron reveals his playbook for helping entrepreneurs to radically reorganize their business, reclaim their time, and keep their company growing while working less and enjoying life to the fullest. He talks about the most common mistakes that hold business owners back, useful mindsets for hiring people and implementing new practices, and how to act like a true business owner — rather than your own most critical employee.
