Let’s talk about building your team as an entrepreneur. I know we’ve all done it and I know we’ve probably all failed. I have absolutely failed. When I fail I then think I have to keep doing it all by myself. I have been listening to Alex Charfen lately and following what he talks about in terms of team building. If you are not in his group and following him, I suggest you check him out.
When you actually find the right person, it’s the coolest thing ever. I recently had a moment here where I realized that one of our new hires was actually a lot smarter than me. In a lot of respects, he is going to be able to take things to a place that I had never even imagined and that is the coolest feeling in the world.
I handed something over and it worked and then it surprised me about how good it was! That’s amazing and that’s what we’re all in this business to do. If you have not found that team member or you haven’t been building towards handing off those responsibilities that’s definitely something that you should focus on.
It is such a fulfilling moment and it’s just absolutely amazing to be helping other people and also know that it’s putting your business on track and moving your business forward. It’s so, so super exciting, so if you haven’t done it, follow Alex. There are so many ways that you can build your team, find the right person, and have those surprising moments that don’t require all of your brain power. It’s amazing.
