Afton Brazzoni: Lessons learned from her first 5 hires while transitioning from solopreneur to agency


August 31, 2022

So what’s stopping you from getting more help? 

You might be thinking it seems like a risk to make another hire. 

What comes first? Is it getting the new hire or the new clients? It’s the age-old chicken or egg question. 

While every scenario has different considerations on who to hire and in what capacity, one thing holds, don’t wait till you’re overwhelmed to hire. 

If your business is not growing consistently, it might be that you’re still too much in the day-to-day, working in the business, rather than on growing the business. 

Hear how this business owner went from side hustle to solopreneur and now an agency, during the pandemic, by making the right hires. 

Tune in to this episode of the Small But Mighty Agency for insights on:
