In late 2008, just weeks after celebrating the first birthday of his third child, Chris Ducker hit a wall. He had been working nearly fifteen hours a day and realized that as an entrepreneur he was not running the business – he had become the business. Seeing what was in store if he remained in the same groove, Chris was determined to make a change and began to plan his escape while chronicling the process on the Virtual Business Lifestyle blog. Over the following eleven months he focused on creating autonomy through delegation, processes, and systems to successfully remove himself as a vital organ of his business. Now employing more than 280 people, Chris helps other entrepreneurs combat ‘superhero syndrome’ to create time to focus on what is truly important.
