In this episode, we’re talking about the 4 machines that your business needs to succeed. This topic is part of an ongoing conversation we started a few weeks ago about what it really means to create a freedom business.

There are people in the online marketing space who are selling the idea that building a business is easy and that all you need to do is hire a VA to run it and you’ll be earning money while you sleep in no time. But this isn’t realistic.

Now, you might be wondering what I mean by “machines.” These are simply the different teams or functions in your business that handle a lot of different tasks. In this episode, we’ll do an overview of the 4 machines you need in your business so you can see the big picture. In future weeks, we’ll dig into each of these 4 machines so you can see more specifically what you’ll need in each one.
