Building and maintaining a successful business is no small feat; it’s very hard, if not impossible, to do alone. So the best thing to do is to build a team of “A Players” whom you can count on to keep your business healthy.
The big question is this: How do you choose the best people to surround yourself with? The answer might surprise you…
The first thing you want to do is find people who have your best interests – and the best interests of your business – at heart. Certainly there are times for those who work as ‘gunslingers’ who can come in, do one job for you and never be heard from again. But for the most part, you’ll want to build a family of workers who are putting you and your business number one.
Know your strengths, and know your weaknesses. This will be the biggest part in making the decision as to who does work for you. Not good at writing copy? Find someone from Elance.com who can do the work for you. Need a new webpage design? Check www.vworker.com (formally Rent-A-Coder.com).
These sites allow feedback, letting others whom they have worked for rate them so you’ll have some frame of reference before diving in and choosing a person at random.
Some of the workers are expensive, some are relatively cheap. On sites like Fiverr.com you can find people who will do just about anything – from voiceovers to graphic design to building a webpage – for $5. So as you can see, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get your business taken care of.
The bottom line is to find the best people for the job. Self-starters and those who don’t require hand-holding guidance can go a long way toward taking things off your plate and adding to your profit margin.
