The unicorn trap is a cautionary tale, not a success story. You’re caught in the trap when you start believing in your own (mythical) brilliance. You think that you’re the only one who can do what you do - no one can do it at the same level as you. And because of this, you fail to systemise and delegate.

In this episode of Mortgage Broker Acceleration, James Veigli and Ash Playsted explain how the unicorn mindset turns your business into a one-man show. Tune in to learn why everyone must escape the unicorn trap — and how.
