When I started my business over a decade ago, it was my intention to grow it slowly. I wanted to work part time so I could be present for my young boys – things look very different these days.
Today I share with you all about my team, who they are, how I chose them, and why. As well as why each of them performs the tasks they do. This is the part you find out what I love to do and the things I’m really bad at – I definitely play to my team’s strengths. This is going to help you when you’re considering hiring a team member, perhaps you’re ready right now. Remember you don’t have to do everything yourself.
As you grow your business, you will always need people to help you. You can definitely run a business by yourself but only up to a certain point. I work inside my business between 30 – 50hrs per week nowadays, varying wildly depending on what I have going on. Of course, I work more when I’m having a launch – like last month when I launched Blooming Biz Academy.
My team consists of four fabulous members – my tech savvy husband, Grant. My Online Business Manager (OBM) Marianne, my Perth Virtual Assistant (VA) Clare, and my overseas VA.
Between the five of us, we’re a well-oiled machine. Grant takes care of my website as well as managing our home. I refer to Clare as like having a boss – she keeps me on track and focused. Marianne turns my words into eye-catching automated emails and brings an extra brain to the business. And my overseas VA looks after some of my social media, and community engagement. This is just a snippet of what my team do, I share almost everything they do with you in this episode. Tune in as there may be some tasks on the list of jobs you don’t like to do that you had never even thought of outsourcing.
Tune in to hear how together we make it happen!
