Show Notes

Joining me today is Christy Zolty of Maplewood Outside School in New Jersey. We hear about how Christy is working on finding the right balance between business and family life. There's some really good advice in here, particularly around understanding the challenges of recruiting staff and delegating. This was particularly important for Christy, as her business took off quicker than she anticipated!

*We were dealing with the leaf blowers of New Jersey on this one, but stick with it - the audio does improve!
