Episode 102: Building A Business That Runs On Autopilot With Duncan Leask

He did in 3 years what some business owners never do… 

Built a sizeable business which can run on autopilot. 

Now, it might not be your goal right now. 

But it’s definitely a good goal to have because having a business that doesn’t rely on you is a top feeling. 

Gaining freedom and a stress-free business was key for Duncan. 

And the impressive part is that he started his business from scratch in 2021.   

When Duncan joined our program, growth felt like an uphill battle. 

Margins were tight, and the work was exhausting.  

Duncan was nearly burned out and he had only been in business for 8 months.  

His drive for success has paid off in no time and now he owns a business that rakes in $200k per month with a minimum profit margin of 40%. 

He hasn’t just grown quickly but sustainably. 

And because of that he doesn’t have that fear the business will explode if he’s not involved. 

So I sat down with him so he could share the secrets to his success.
