Paul shares the following wisdom: trust your team, get to know your team, throw your ego out the window, connect with people that are where you want to be and done is better than perfect.
Paul Maskill started his first service-based business in 2011. Before he knew it, he was working 60-80 hours a week. Until he realized that he had no freedom and the business needed him to survive. So Paul started to systematize everything. By putting systems, processes and people in place, his revenue doubled to almost $500k while the number of hours he worked dropped below 40. Paul then sold his business for 3x net profit. He’s now a coach, consultant and investor for small businesses ready to break free and achieve the income & freedom they sought when they started their business.
