What kind of team do you want?
From our first blog in this series, What Kind of Business Owner Are You?, we discussed that as a business owner it is important to know whether you want to sustain, grow, or scale your business.
To sustain, you may want to hire a virtual assistant to help with some aspects of your business just to keep you sane.
To grow, you will want to hire virtual assistants and operations people to run the parts of your business that do not directly generate revenue. For instance, a photographer may hire for scheduling, marketing, editing, etc.
To scale, you will need to hire for the roles already mentioned but you will also want to plan on hiring others for service delivery. To continue our example of a photography business, you will need a plan for hiring other photographers.
Knowing what kind of business owner you are is essential for your business’ future. Once this is determined, building the right team is important as well. There are crucial factors to consider when getting ready to build your team.
