LuAnn Nigara and Jessica Lackey’s Ah-Ha Moments
“If you reach the next level where you have to rainmake to support that pipeline, are you designing anymore? If not, are you OK with that? People don’t expect the fact that their roles may completely shift,” – LuAnn Nigara.
“When you think about scaling your business, you need to think about how far you want to remove yourself from the business. So, the first step is to remove yourself from the backend stuff that isn’t your zone of genius,” – Jessica Lackey.
