One thing I hear constantly from women who contact us at Million Dollar Women that they are feeling overwhelmed don’t know how to make it stop. This is usually for one of two reasons: either they haven’t yet learned how to outsource and delegate, or, they have too much business coming in (which seems like a good problem to have), but they don’t have the systems in place to support it.
In Million Dollar Women Masterclass we help women learn how to be “the leaders” and not “the doers” in their business and put an end to overwhelm. I am excited to share a few books that can help you start making these shifts right away.

Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You by John Warrillow
Stop doing everything yourself! Most business owners started their company because they wanted more freedom—to work on their own schedules, make the kind of money they deserve, and eventually retire on the fruits of their labor.
Unfortunately, according to John Warrillow, most owners find that stepping out of the picture is extremely difficult because their business relies too heavily on their personal involvement. Without them, their company—no matter how big or profitable—is essentially worthless.
But the good news is that entrepreneurs can take specific steps—no matter what stage a business is in—to create a valuable, sellable company. Warrillow shows exactly what it takes to create a solid business that can thrive long into the future.
