5 steps to take before you hire!

It’s easy to come up with plans for your business. You know what you want to do and how that will look. But have you thought about who’s going to help you implement those plans? Because, if you’re going to achieve them, there’s a high chance you’re not able to do everything yourself. This is why you need to get the right support team in place.

You need a support team beside you

If you want your business to grow, and continue growing consistently, you need some support. Having a team around you will not only take some of the workload off your plate, but it also ensures all the tasks get done. Because most entrepreneurs are visionaries. They’re great at coming up with brilliant ideas and visualising where they want their business to be. But they’re not so hot at turning those ideas into a strategic plan of action. That’s why you need to build a support team around you, to help bring your ideas to life. 

Your business needs the right, right-hand person in place

Your business needs someone who can help turn your ideas into an actionable strategy. A right-hand person who can set up the projects and monitor results. If you want to achieve long-term growth, you need a person in a high-level executive role, such as a Director of Operations (DOO), to oversee your team and implement systems and processes in your business to help streamline and improve your results.  They can hire team members that understand and share your business values. As your right-hand person, your DOO can motivate and manage your team, to ensure they’re inspired by your business vision and mission statement and understand the part they play in achieving it.  [If you’d like to know more about how a Director of Operations can help your business, check out this recent blog post]

A support team needs a Virtual Assistant

As part of your support team, you need someone who can carry out the essential daily tasks within your business. Tasks such as customer service and support, diary and email management, social media management, content creation etc. There are many types of VA’s but a good Virtual Assistant may also have strong tech skills so they will also be able to set up your sales pages and funnels, as well as your email automations and nurture campaigns. A Virtual Assistant is one of the core team players in any business. With a range of skills and experience, a VA can provide you with solutions to a wide range of tasks within your business.. If you don’t get any other team member in place, a VA is an excellent place to start. It’s easy to come up with plans for your business, but without the right support team in place, those plans won’t get implemented.

 

Depending on the size of your business and your team, you may want to look at bringing on a Director of Operations. The DOO is a strategic partner who will help create a strategy for your business growth, manage your team, your operations & your projects and if you need more team members – they’ll cover that for you too!  The two types of team members above are a vital part of growing your business year on year. When these types of people come together with Visionaries, that is known as Rocket Fuel.
