Think bottom dollar, think big fat wallet, and think big fat income. If you want to free yourself up and continue to make more money and increase your income you’ll need a team to support your dream. Try this formula for cloning yourself, (don’t forget special ingredient #3, without it, the whole thing is gonna flop!
Systemise your business or hire someone to help you systemise your business. Eliminate anything that isn’t contributing positively to your life or business. Focus on the areas that free you up and/or make you the most money the easiest way possible. The systems you establish are the key to automation. Automation is the key to sacking yourself and having someone else step into your shoes.
Having systems makes outsourcing easy. You can outsource the various key functions to technology and/or skilled virtual assistants or other team players that fit in with your overall business model. You’ll want to make sure you work with a virtual assistant that will be a trusted business partner in your business.
The best and quickest way to find a virtual assistant is within your own network. You can also check out www.myvaspace.com.
Be sure to stay connected with your clients and your team
I have seen a number of small business owners do really well with the systemising and outsourcing functions mentioned here. However, it’s absolutely imperative that while you’re systemising and outsourcing major elements of your business, YOU are still the magic ingredient in your business. To continue to profit, you MUST stay connected with your clients…what are they saying to you? What are they feeling? What are they struggling with? And what do they want? Keep personally connected with them to keep your clients loyal.
Staying closely connected with your team via regular online meetings and open communication will also help them to stay motivated about your business. If you have a virtual team, those casual chats that show you care are really important. Often your team members are working alone without the usual social connection of a typical working environment. Give them what they need. A little regular dose of motivation!
Social media is a great platform for you to stay connected with your team and your clients alike.
If you’ve got the systems and the team to drive them and you’re keeping that magic ingredient – YOU – alive and connected you’ll be truly rewarded. You’ll be rewarded with a flourishing business that supports you and your lifestyle.
