If you want to grow your revenue, your impact, your freedom and your independence from your business, it is going to involve building your team.
Now when you’re in the first few years of business hiring a team sounds like incredibly scary stuff. I mean once you bring on another human, you’re not only responsible for paying yourself and all of the business expenses, but also for holding up someone else’s salary, which they’re reliant on for paying their rent, bill’s and supporting their family.
Another point of resistance is that many entrepreneurs have come out of corporate environments, and the last thing that they want to create around them is that boring old 9-5am slog – total snoresvill.
And the third point of resistance – and the biggest in my opinion that I often come up against in the entrepreneurs that I mentor is that they have the belief that if they keep things small, and keep doing everything themselves, then it maintains their freedom because they can close it down and walk away at any time.
BUT, and this is a big but…
This belief of having freedom when you’re doing it all yourself is a total myth. Why? Because when it’s just you you’re the one that has to keep all the wheels turning all the time. If you’re not driving this business beast, it’s not going anywhere – and there’s no freedom in that at all.
Whereas once you start to bring on team you have more brains, more energy, more creativity on board. And if you truly do want to pack up your family and head on a 3 months campervan trip around Aus, there are people in place to keep the wheels turning and the business banking conin while you’re away.
So bringing on a team, the right team, in the right way can truly liberate you from your business.
But, you’ll notice that I said, the right way there, because there are many wrong ways to bring on team, and that’s what we’re diving into today.
