Flying home

Enjoyed a fantastic team meeting with Jen and Barbara in Starbucks this morning.
My clarity was around understanding that my practice cannot grow unless I offer them an equity participation in the business, as opposed to just being “on the payroll”.
I love what I love to do – speak, coach and write.
I hate what I have to do – finance, sales, marketing, resources, personnel.
So I want them to do it – as co-owners in the business.
Now that’s a big decision and they have gone away to think about it.
