How to Audit Your Team to Scale

It kind of goes without saying that you need a team if you want to scale your business to your next $100k, $500k, a million, and beyond. And maybe you’ve already started that journey. You have freelancers taking over the one-off projects. You have VAs that support the day-to-day. You have an OBM and/or an Ops Manager keeping an eye on your biz. You have all the support you could ask for… So why don’t you have more freedom and flexibility in your day? Why are your team expenses on the rise? And why are you still in the thick of things, pulling the strings, coming up with ideas, solutions, troubleshooting, and all the things in between? If you’re like most business owners I see, you started building a team to take the pressure off of you, but somewhere along the way, you lost sight of why you hired and whether that hire is moving closer to your scaling goals. So, how do you get back on track with your team so that you actually get the support you need to scale your business?

Hiring a Team Won’t Help You Scale

You know you need a team to scale your business, right? You know you’ll need a VA or an OBM or a DOO, someone who is going to help you handle all of the bits and pieces of your business. Someone who will come in and save the day so you don’t have to handle all the admin, the ops, and the stuff you just plain don’t want or know how to do. And maybe you’ve started down that road… and gotten less than stellar results with VAs. Maybe you’ve upgraded to OBMs and DOOs…and found that more expertise doesn’t mean more work off your plate. Because a team is a piece of the formula… And hiring a team isn’t going to help unless you can also lead, manage, and hold your team accountable for delivering results up to your standards.

Everyone Wants to be a CEO Until it’s Time to do CEO Sh*t

Did you know, I am a big fan of Bravo’s Below Deck? In a trailer for the new season, Captain Lee (my fav 🤩🤩) said, “Everyone wants to be Captain until it’s time to do Captain sh*t.” And the truth in that statement rang loud and clear. Anyone can call themselves a CEO, a Founder, or an Owner. But when it comes down to it, when it’s time to make the decisions, have hard conversations, and lead so that your business can thrive, do you act like it? It can be hard to own your role as the CEO in your business when your business is disorganized, messy, and unsteady.
