How do you assemble a lean dream team and why is this team important for a small business owner? How do you manage this lean team and get things done to deliver value and generate revenue in your business?
If you're running a small business, it's likely that you're handling all operations on your own. To avoid this, it's essential to build and utilize a small, efficient team that can contribute to the development and growth of your business.
Having a small, dedicated, and high-performing team that shares your vision and takes ownership as if it were their own, is crucial. This team will drive your business forward, granting you the freedom you initially sought when starting the business. With their support, you can break free from the day-to-day tasks, allowing you to regain control of your time and personal life. Furthermore, this collaborative effort will help you scale your business effectively.
