When it comes to building your brand or business, it’s all about the team!
They say if you want to go fast, you go alone, but if you want to go far, you need to have a team. I can tell you this is 100% true.
I used to try to do e v e r y t h i n g myself. I even took this approach when working my corporate job because I thought nobody could do it better than me.
We’ve all felt this way and thought that if we don’t do things ourselves they won’t get done right. The problem is, this mentality creates a lot of limitations.
There are only so many hours in a day and so much time that you can devote to your work. I’ve tried functioning on very little sleep and it just isn’t practical. This lifestyle will catch up with you and you’ll be left feeling burnt out and exhausted.
You need to build a team!
Rather than having a group of people to micromanage, focus on working together with them to achieve common goals.
When I start my day, I link up with my team to see what we have going on for the week and what’s on their plates. It’s important to have communication, encourage accountability, and make sure everyone is doing their part to keep things moving smoothly for the team as a whole.
You are only one component of your brand or business, and your team is the glue that holds it all together and keeps it running.
Along with the benefits of having a team, it’s also important to have accountability. You can surround yourself with people that tell you what you want to hear all of the time, but this won’t help you grow or improve. A strong team will have open dialogue and offer necessary constructive criticism.
You will need to address your own accountability from the start. Members of your team will look for inspiration through your habits and behavior, so it’s important that you lead by example.
Be clear about the ‘why’ behind things in your business. If you need your team to spend time on specific projects, help them understand the significance of their role and the desired outcome. This awareness encourages your team to feel ownership, commitment, and responsibility for their role in the team’s overall success.
One of the key factors to my success is having a supportive and reliable team in place. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to pull off all that I set out to accomplish. We make these things happen together.
You don’t have to be a one-man band. Stick to what you’re best at and let others help you bring your vision and dreams to life. You can achieve anything you want with the right mindset and people by your side.
