Next Level Entrepreneurship with Chris Ducker

The traditional view of the entrepreneur is someone with superhuman stamina who works day and night to get their vision off the ground. For a long time, it was simply accepted as part of the culture that people who wanted to succeed work 14-hour days and spent their weekends buried in spreadsheets and contracts. On this episode number 196, we're going to hear from a man who embraced this lifestyle 100%, then he realized his mistake. I'm talking about author, podcaster, and entrepreneur Chris Ducker.  Chris was so focused on building his business that he worked long hours and neglected his personal health and family. Then in 2009, he suffered shocking burnout that made him question everything he knew about work. Exhausted, he knew he had to make a change. He overhauled his business, embraced outsourcing, and by 2010, he was working an average of six hours a day and spending more time with his family. Not only was he happier and healthier, but even managed to start a second business while working less. If you've ever felt trapped by your own business and wish you could spend more time working “on” your business instead of “in” it, this episode is for you.
