  • Hi Conleth,

    We answered the big question in this video:

    Regarding your 2 other questions;

    1. You get creative! Unless you’re able to generate solutions for upcoming barriers, you are not meant to be an entrepreneur.

    2. Usually, this is done by segmenting your workflow, meaning there isn’t 1 man who knows how your entire business is being run. You separate each employee to do different tasks that only when put together result in actual value. Then you add as many barriers as possible: Financial barriers (most employees won’t have the money you have), Network barriers (your connections), Know-How Barriers (you know something they don’t).
