Delegation: Where Do I Start?

What one thing do you and the most successful business owners on the planet have in common?

Well, for one thing, you both have only 24 hours in a day. No more, no less.
So how do you scale your business in those 24-hour days? Days when you’re overwhelmed with day-to-day tasks; when you’re constantly fielding “urgent” interruptions; when you’re struggling to move the ball forward on the big picture vision you have for your business?

Next week, Ptex Group will be closing its doors for a few short days as our hardworking team plans to celebrate the wonderful Jewish holiday of Pesach (Passover).

The benefits of taking a break are well-documented. The ability to catch our breath, to clear our minds. Revamp and re-energize.

Beyond Wikileaks: The Dark Side of Email
