Because while all of this “systematizing, automating and delegating” may free you up for a short time, the truth is that by adding all of this extra stuff to your plate, you end up with even more things to keep tabs on.
It’s no longer just the work and the clients and the sales and the marketing that you have to manage … now, there’s complicated tech, and systems, and processes, and team members, and the list goes on.
Plus, it’s all just so expensive.
In fact, if you’ve ever found yourself aying “I just need another $10k per month” or “another $200k per year”… this Internet Marketing Guru scaling path is likely a major cause.
Because even beyond the financial costs, the simple fact is that when you follow that advice, you still need to put in a lot of time, stress, focus and energy to make it all work.
And that leads to some pretty serious opportunity costs …
- The projects you can’t tackle.
- The sales you won’t make.
- The events you can’t attend.
- The people you won’t reach.
- The client experience up-levels you can’t make.
- The lives you won’t change.
These are real, hard costs that can add up to thousands—if not tens of thousands—of dollars each and every month.
And so all that this systematizing, automating and delegating does … all it ever can do … is put you right back onto the hamster wheel.
Where if you stop moving, so does everything (and everyone) else.
And you know what’s the hardest part of it all?
It’s that all of those things keep you so busy, that it feels like you’re making progress. Like you’re doing the right things. Like you’re “growing your business.”
But the reality is, it’s all just entrepreneurial junk food.
It tastes sweet, but none of it is actually getting you any closer to something that can scale sustainably; it all leads back to burnout, frustration and stress.
To say nothing of the opportunity costs.
So it’s time to pull back the curtain and reveal exactly why these so-called solutions will always fail to free you up as you scale…
And what to do instead.
