Ep 16: Meet Kenny, Serial Entrepreneur and Master Delegator
Akua interviews serial entrepreneur Kenny Schumacher. Kenny has been starting businesses since college, where he studied accounting. For him, the thrill is all in the startup and the building of the company. He has founded many businesses and successfully sold 2 of them. He thrives in handling operations and building out teams to operate the business.
It may sound crazy to many business owners, but Kenny tries to remove himself from the business he created as soon as he can. Many CEOs would say their business is their highest priority and that they can’t imagine things running without them. Akua asks Kenny to explain why he delegates so much, how he delegates effectively, and when he knows it’s time to move to the next project.
