    E717: Design Your Business to Run Like Clockwork with Mike Michalowicz

    You can be a successful freelance writer or know all of the content marketing secrets, but we all still operate on limited time. Some bloggers, podcasters, and YouTubers struggle to balance their work with vacation, especially since you can bring your computer and work with you. The result is not being present and missing out on memorable experiences.
    Mike Michalowicz wants to help entrepreneurs solve that problem. He joins us on Breakthrough Success to share how our businesses can run like clockwork. During this stage, you could walk away from your business for 4 weeks and have no problem with revenue, attracting new clients, or any other challenges. If you like the idea of a business that grows without making family and friend time nonexistent, this is the episode for you.
