Neeson has come to appreciate the value of hiring a great lieutenant. “About two years ago, I became very overwhelmed by the business,” she says. “All I could see was a forest of tasks that I didn’t like to do, and the things I was good at were taking a back seat.” So, she hired a second-in-command to handle the more tactical obligations. “It’s allowed me to refocus on things that I’m good at, like the marketing of the business, which has resulted in a large increase to both sales and profitability. And it’s relieved the burden of me being the go-to person for everything.”
