We've come a really long way over the last eight lessons. Some of you have said, "I'm ready to burn everything down." (laughing) Some of you have had some really big realizations about what kind of company you're building, how you may not be taking advantage of the people who are already working with you as much as you could. We know now what you need to do to get ready. What steps you're gonna take when you get home, when you stop watching the video and start doing the work, but I wanna know now what's changed about the way that you look at your business, about the possibilities for the future, about how you think about yourself, what's changed? Job categories instead of help with your to do list was a huge one. Excellent. Megan? Yeah I kinda, I jumped the gun on the last question cause that-- that has been the big thing for me, is just really separating my business, and that I can be a small business and that I can still have employees. Absolutely. You can be lean and mean. Still hav...
e help. Absolutely. What else has changed? My mindset. I think I looked at her in as like, this committed marriage, and it's more like dating with intention and like, things can change and they can evolve so-- Absolutely! Yeah! Yeah. Melissa. Seeing myself, my business, myself and my business as a job creator, and as a business that people would love to work for. Yeah. Amen to that. I want to echo that and I just want to call out what I know everyone felt in this room when you talked about how this is where the magic happens, this is how we are really gonna power the future of business and create jobs and really be the powerhouse, and I just love that moment, just wanna call it out, cause I could feel everyone in the room go, "(gasp)" And you got teary, I got teary, I'm sure everyone got teary too. So, that was awesome. Excellent. Well, I mean, that is, that's my mission. That's my mission. And absolutely, I mean, I've asked the question before, you know, who do you think of when you think of someone wealthy and influential? Who do you think of when you think of someone wealthy and influential? Who do you think of when you think of someone powerful? In our economy, in our communities, and our societies? I hope this class has given you a new look at how that person can be you. You can be wealthy, you can be powerful, you can be influential, because you create jobs. You create opportunity. Most importantly, you bring your vision to fruition. Instead of bumping up against those ceilings that you've been bumping up against for months, or years, or a decade or more, you start actually getting past those obstacles because now you have the support. You have the capacity. You have the ability, the capability to finally move past those hurdles that seemed absolutely insurmountable. That's the beauty of hiring. It's the beauty of setting up your business to be a place that can hire in the first place. So whether that new employee, that new team member comes on board next week, next month, next year, a few years from now, I hope you will take the steps that we've talked through over these last eight sessions so that your business is ready when that time comes and so that you can be a more effective, productive, powerful, influential, business owner right now. You can get a lot out of what we've covered here today without hiring. And you can get even more out of what we covered here over the last eight lessons when you do bring a new team member on board. Guys, thank you so much for being here today. Thank you for tuning in online. That is a wrap on creating a hiring plan and growing your stand out business.
Are you too damn busy? Your business can’t run—let alone grow—without all the hard work you put into it on a daily basis.
What’s worse, you don’t have the time to hire anyone, you’re not making the money you need to hire anyone, and you don’t see how anyone else could do the work you do.
If you keep at it this way it’s just a matter of time before you burn out. You will end up closing up shop, not because the business wasn’t working but simply because it wore you down. You had something and couldn’t make it last because you just couldn’t do it all.
There is also the problem that if you hire the wrong people you will be wasting time and money on a series of hires that don’t alleviate your stress.
Set up your business to be the best place to work—even for yourself.
Finally, retire from being “too busy” and once and for all streamline your operations and systematize your workflow.
By the end of this class, you will be able to:
- Describe your company culture and why it makes for a great place to work
- Streamline your business operations, focusing only on what really counts
- Systematize your workflow so that you never have to reinvent the wheel
- Create a plan for fulfilling the roles every business needs to succeed
- Identify who you want to hire and when
- Craft a job description that brings in the right folks
