Episode 126: Building businesses for the long-term – with Ray Blakney

What would you do if your business disappeared overnight? This is exactly what happened to today’s guest, and he had to rebuild everything from the ground up. I’m talking with Ray Blakney, who not only recovered from that disaster and grew his main business to a solid seven figures, but he’s also started multiple other businesses on the side – some successful, others not so much.

In this conversation he tells us all about building businesses with a long-term perspective, how he manages to juggle several projects at the same time, and his method for testing a business idea or product idea to see if it gains traction. There’s also some great advice for hiring and making that transition from doing everything yourself to delegating things to a team.
