When you’re building a business around your passion, there are some “businessy” things that don’t always come into focus until later on.
Turns out, ya gotta pay taxes, get your own health insurance, and plan for your own retirement when you’re the boss
And, for most entrepreneurs, there’s also a point when building and leading a team (even if that’s a team of +1) is essential for scalability.
But, since there’s no Entrepreneurial Handbook out there, and since most passion-driven entrepreneurs got into business because they love their work, not necessarily because they want to run a company, leading a team is one “businessy” thing that can come with resistance, confusion, and frustration.
Even if you came into business armed with an MBA and leadership training, the landscape can look different in the online space with remote team members (and, when it’s your own business and dollars to spend).
The good news? The core of building and leading a team doesn’t need to be as daunting as it sounds and might feel, and I bet you already have transferable relationship skills that you can lean on.
That’s why I went live to talk about communication skills you can steal from your personal relationships to lead a team that supports your growth and scalability.
I shared the mindset I’ve adopted and coach clients around when it comes to team, my favorite tool that supports your clarity on when to speak up and when to sit on your hands, and the communication approach (adopted from personal relationships) you can steal to lead your own team that you enjoy working with and supports your next-level growth, profitability, and scalability.
Wishing you your version of success!
