Secret #5: Hiring to Scale
This lesson is two-fold so let's dive into the first part:
Part 1: Hiring Experts
Okay, so to be honest, this was the #1 thing I put off for far too long in my business. I spent two years...TWO YEARS...trying to build my business alone. Guess what? It didn't work. I had no idea what I was doing (like everyone else when they first start) and somehow I thought that would make me succeed.
I was wrong, and I feel like I wasted time that could have brought results if I would have just simply admitted that I needed help and was willing to invest in myself and my dream. So after two years of trying, I realized what I was doing was not going to work and I hired my first business coach. I INSTANTLY saw results! I've never looked back since and continue to invest in programs, coaching, courses, masterminds etc. with experts I can learn from who will help me propel my business forward.
Part 2: Hiring Support
The second part of this lesson is hiring support in your business. As you know, running a business requires A LOT, and as an entrepreneur you have to wear many hats. Well, one of the hats that I see entrepreneurs get stuck wearing (that stumps their growth) is getting stuck on small tasks that keep their business going but not growing.
As the CEO of your business, your main focus should be growing and doing tasks that generate sales and leads DAILY. If you don't do it, nobody else will. So if you have tasks that are taking up too much of your time that keep your business going and not growing then its time to hire out.
I hired my first assistant 4 months into my business because I wanted to grow and expand but I was stuck doing smaller tasks and guess what? My revenue doubled the following month. Why? Because I was able to delegate the "going" tasks so that I could focus on the "growing" ones. And grow we did!
Don't be afraid to invest in yourself and in your business. The sooner you invest the sooner you start to see a return and growth and results! I wish I would have known this sooner.
Be willing to lead the way in investing in your business, because if you don't, nobody else will.
