"I'll never charge for a podcast. But also, there is an opportunity cost for time, I've realized now, why would I ever do one shop tour when I could do 10? At the same time? It's just efficiency. Why would I ever speak to 10 people when I can speak to 1000? Now listen, I do a lot of things. And I try to help a lot of people. But there's only so many hours in a day. And if you're not increasing your efficiency, you're never gonna grow. "

Key Takeaways 
"Okay, and one of the things that I recommend everybody do is start keeping a little track of your time. And if it's not on a Google Calendar, I just recommend an old-fashioned scheduler and where your time is going. That's your next hire. If you're spending 15 hours on payroll dilemmas, or you're realizing you gotta make the LMS there are people that automate a better LMS than you they understand how people learn. They're the best of the best. And a lot of times when I was a smaller business, I thought I was saving money by buying used trucks and not hiring the best of the best and not getting the best trainers. And I thought I'll just help but then I realized that I was actually losing money because things weren't hitting the finish line and things weren't getting done. And it was kind of a hodgepodge put together. And all these ideas without hiring the best without getting consultants, without reading books without listening to great podcasts without getting, you know, learning at great speaking events, I realized I was actually kind of shooting myself in the foot, I was actually making my life harder" - Tommy


"Love it, man. So you have so much gratitude. That's it. That's it so you know exactly what you want. You're crystal clear. You're on you're hyper passionate you're in love with what you do. And you walk in live in gratitude, infinite curiosity around business and success, or you're always asking questions, you're humbled, you're not afraid to ask for help you build a team around you of people that are smarter than you even know the things that maybe you don't know how to do. You don't want to do it all you focus on what you're best at, and you're a visionary. So you find integrators and people that can help you. And when you help enough people win, you win automatically." - Keith
