Podcast episode number 18 is now live on iTunes. In this podcast episode I interview Chris Ducker an entrepreneur and expert on using virtual assistants in your business.

In my own professional and personal life, letting go and hiring on others to work on my business has given me more free time and helped me dramatically grow my business which is precisely why you’ve gotta hear what Chris has to say in this podcast episode.

Chris also recently released his book Virtual Freedom that I highly recommend you buy if you own a business and keep trying to do everything yourself.

Limited Time: Chris is also doing a huge give away on his blog here Expires Friday April 4th in the evening.

Want to get Chris’s Book – Virtual Freedom?

I mentioned in the very beginning of the podcast episode that hiring others to help me grow my business was the single most important thing I ever did and this action (along with how to execute it) is so important that I wanted Chris to come on and share his experiences.
