You can’t do everything yourself. You can’t grow your company if you aren’t willing to grow your team. This took me awhile to understand because I used to do everything myself and I got so burnt out because of it.
It’s impossible to do every single thing alone.
It’s impossible to grow your business alone.
Having a dynamic team means having new ideas and point of views on almost every aspect of the business. And I love it. I love learning new things and having team members teach others, so we can all grow together.
It’s so important to learn from those around you because everyone knows things you don’t know, which means you can learn so much! So, take advantage of all the knowledge surrounding you – whether that is from a virtual assistant, your employees, your family or your friends. There’s knowledge everywhere and you won’t grow unless you learn it!
Don’t burn yourself out.
Having said that, there’s always going to be obstacles, but this is a good thing because when we overcome obstacles – we grow.
Sometimes we can’t do this alone and this is why having a team is so important because they can contribute to overcoming an obstacle.
I acknowledge it’s scary growing your team – you're now responsible to somebody’s income and if your business goes under they are left without a job as well. However, every time I grow my team it only pushes me to work harder because I don’t want to let my team down. So, take the risk and grow your team.
Grow the ideas.
Grow the potential of having the best business possible.
Grow your mind.
