Wearing many hats as an e-commerce seller isn’t easy, but letting someone else take over a task you’ve been doing for years could be much harder.

If you’re looking to grow your business, though, you will eventually need to hang up some of those hats to focus on your high-level goals. 

In today’s episode, Kevin Sanderson of Maximizing Ecommerce joins me in breaking down some of the struggles and the rewards of offloading workload from your shoulders and fine-tuning your focus as you scale your business. 

Kevin is an Under the Hood alumni. He was our guest in a two-parter, where we talked about how to stop being a bottleneck to your own business and how to delegate tasks to offshore VAs.

Today, we’ll be talking about why you should never compare your Chapter 4 to someone else’s Chapter 25, some clever tricks we use to filter through hundreds of job applicants, and effective ways to offload your tasks and delegate them to a team that you trust.
