As you grow your business, it’s important that you pay attention to who’s running the show. That doesn’t just apply to management – I’m talking about everyone you bring in to help your company thrive. That means vendors, employees, financial experts, and even coaches. Here are a few important things to consider as you think about your people: Accepting help When you have to make big decisions for your business, do you rely on your team of advisors to help guide your choices? Or do you make all the decisions on your own?
HINT: Other voices can contribute valuable advice based on their experience. This may improve the outcome of your decisions compared to going it alone. Coaching The NBA, women’s tennis, and hockey have coaches on the sidelines close to the players. Likewise, you should have a coach for your business.
It is well worth the investment to have someone to guide you through tough times and set you straight on the course towards your goals and targets Sticking to your expertise Along with listening to others who can help you, remember to do what you do best and try not to stray from it. Your clients value and appreciate the expertise you bring. There’s no need to do and be everything. Focus and stay in your lane – and let others in your business do the same.
