Entrepreneurs know what it means to feel overwhelmed. Often you’re working more hours than you want, you’re stressed out, you don’t see your family as much as you’d like. Whether you’re making money or not, it’s taking its toll. On this episode of The Flip King CEO, Joe gives some tips and tricks on elevating your business, delegating the right way, and scaling your business. These are the actual tips Joe and his team use. So if the above sounds at all like you, then the tips Joe provides in this episode will be a goldmine for you.
Now, this may sound funny at first, but Joe has a saying in his company that he and everyone who works for them says: Fire yourself. That doesn’t mean that you’re quitting your job, of course. Instead, it means you should be looking to create so much value—developing your skills and outgrowing your current position—that your job becomes obsolete. And if you fire yourself, that means that you have to replace yourself. So maybe you’re a solopreneur or you’re an entrepreneur trying to figure out how to get to that next level and you know that means you can’t focus your attention elsewhere, on hiring and HR forever. And that’s where Joe’s advice in this episode comes in.
The first thing you need to do if you’re going to expand your team is to create a list of every single thing you do every week. And it has to be everything you do, whether it’s walking your dog or reading books or making sales calls. Everything goes on that list. Then you need to take that list and break it down using a simple chart for each activity, whether you like or dislike doing it, and whether the activity is good or not good. In this episode, Joe talks about how to assess what you’re doing every week and then make changes based on those assessments. It may sound simple, but it’s key to taking that next step.
Even if you’re working for yourself right now, Joe says you need to be brutally honest about whether you excel at something or fail at it. And even if you love doing something, that doesn’t mean you should be doing it. In this episode, Joe talks about how he’s had to stop doing some of the things that he loves most in the real estate world because it’s just not efficient for a CEO to do that kind of work. And, after you’ve done everything Joe talks about in this episode, you’ll know exactly who you should hire. Joe provides a brilliant trick to writing the job description for your first hire that you just have to hear.
The truth is, if you don’t fire yourself—if you don’t force yourself to take that next step—you and your business aren’t going to grow. As Joe says in this episode who you are and the mindset you have got you to where you are today. But what’s going to get you beyond that? Challenging your mindset. As Joe says, if you’re happy where you are, then there’s no need to change. But if you want to scale, you need to take risks, you need to take different actions, and you need to grow your team. The tips Joe provides in this episode will help get you there.
There are a lot of people out in the business communities these days whos are talking about investing in yourself. But what does that phrase really mean? If you don't understand it you won't do it, and if you won't do it, success is going to be impossible for you to achieve. On this episode of The Flip King CEO, Joe explains what it really means to invest in yourself, why it is so important, and how sometimes it requires a risk in order to achieve. But in the end, the results are worth it. You don't want to miss this motivating episode.
It's not uncommon to see business owners or entrepreneurs who are actually making money but are wasting much of their financial success on things that don't matter. They buy fancy business cards, they wrap their cars with advertising, they get fancy clothes and lease a big office, when what they really need to do is to build the intellectual muscle it takes to grow and scale their business to an even greater degree. That requires a different kind of mindset, one that focuses on scale rather than scarcity. Listen to this episode as Joe walks through the reasons small businesses fail and how your business can avoid being one of those statistics. It all starts with you.
The pains that come with owning and operating a small business are many. The statistics come out every month that tell how many small businesses fail within the first 3 to 7 years. But that kind of crash doesn't have to happen to you, not if you're willing to grow and invest in yourself in ways that will truly change the trajectory of your life. What do you need to do? You need to focus on scale, not scarcity, and that is a mindset issue. If that sounds like Greek to you, Joe unpacks what it means and tells you how to get started on that new track, on this episode of the flip King CEO. Don't miss it.
When we talk about scaling a business, we are talking about establishing the routines and systems that keep the business running without it all depending on one person, which is typically the business owner. That sort of scale doesn't start with systems. It doesn't start with procedures and policies. It starts with people. On this episode, Joe introduces the concept of leveraging people, what it means to the success of your business, and how it is done through developing a team culture. You won't want to miss these practical tips and learn how you can start to think outside your normal perspective, build a true business, and see greater levels of success in your business as a result.
Many people who run their own businesses are fooling themselves when it comes to the kind of success they are really achieving. They think that because they have cash flow coming in, they have the breathing room needed to splurge on things that are more about their ego than they are about their success. They lie to themselves in a number of ways, and it all begins with telling themselves that they are a success when what they really need to do is continue growing personally. Joe calls it investing in yourself, and it's one of the main things you need to do in order to reach the levels of success that are possible. Listen to this episode to learn more, and get ready to move in a different direction, the direction of your true success.
Do you have the mindset of a CEO? If you don't, you don't have hope of building the building the kind of business that really makes a difference in the world.

When Joe first started working in the real estate industry he didn’t have any ambitions to build a huge team. He was doing flips himself and profiting from doing so. It seemed simple and straightforward and he liked it. But the ongoing nature of those kinds of projects soon made him realized that rather than providing him time and freedom to pursue an enjoyable life, his business model had strapped him to his business. That’s when advice from a mentor coincided with his circumstances to convince him it was time to make a change. That meant developing a CEO mindset instead of a “big enough” mindset. You can hear Joe tell the story, on this episode.
Many entrepreneurs or business owners get into the habit of thinking in terms of “good enough.” Their business is providing some amount of success, is feeding their family well, or even providing a bit extra to give them some great experiences. But deep down those entrepreneurs need to ask themselves whether or not WHAT they are doing in their business is what they WANT to be going. It’s great to make money, but why not pursue something you love in order to do it? In this episode, Joe points out a serious problem that comes from thinking wrongly about this issue and prompts you to consider a CEO mindset instead. What exactly is that? Listen to this episode to find out.
Too many business owners are guilty of not leveraging the skills and talents of the people who work for them and with them. They simply give people a job and expect them to do it. There's nothing wrong with responsibility and accountability, but the team will do more than simply get by if you give them something more - things like opportunity, vision, and the power of personal investment. In this episode Joe points out how business owners with a CEO mindset invest in their team, providing them ways to work within the business that fulfill them and give them an ownership stake in the outcomes everyone is shooting for.
