You’re an entrepreneur because you have a unique ability; something you want to share with the world. In order to serve large numbers of people with your unique talents, you must operate as a business owner-not as a self-employed person.
Working with women business owners, I hear many objections for why they can’t hire a team-affordability, lack of qualified applicants, belief that a new person will never be able to deliver the service like they can.
While these feel valid, they are not the true problem with team building. Most small business owners actually are challenged with receiving support and have a lack of experience with team building.
The great news is that you can overcome these challenges. Visit to download a Fill-in-the-Blank Org Chart that will help with knowing where to start. Once you identify which roles need to be filled in your organization, you can determine the ones you enjoy and the ones you would like to delegate.
Great team players not only pay for themselves, they also help your company generate additional revenues.
As a business owner, you must shift from “How can I afford to pay this person?” to “Who can support me so I can shine in my highest role within the company?”
If your time serving clients generates $150 per hour, and you can bring on a team member to do administrative tasks for $20 per hour, you have the opportunity to generate $130 per hour, while delegating tasks you don’t enjoy.
When you stay in your unique area of brilliance, you have the opportunity to better your skills, and your value increases in the marketplace. We bring a new level of service to our clients and our income increases as a result.
