How to Build a Team…even when you can’t afford it!!On December 8, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
When you building a team who do you bring
on first and where you even start. All that more comin’ up on this episode of
JamesWedmore.TV. These weeks, question of the week comes from
YouTube user: Iwanttogetmarried. And their question is, James it’s obviously
you have a team to help you with your video production but I’m just sorry now and I
can’t afford to hire a team, yet!. If I hired to bring on a person to help me?
What position should it be to start out? A behind the camera person or someone in my
admin space? Well, Iwanttogetmarried since I don’t know
your first name. That’s a great question, and so of anyone is looking to expand behind
themselves we kinda need to choose who do we go after first, who do we bring on to our
team because I’m gonna say right now trying to this all alone is one of the hardest things
in the world to do. Even if you’re just starting out and you
think you don’t have the money, you need to start letting go or outsourcing or getting
resourceful as quickly as possible and the magic word here obviously is (LEVERAGE). Leverage
the time, energy and manpower of other people to help you grow your business. There’s just
far too much to be done you can’t do it all yourself.
So where do you start? I actually wouldn’t recommend if you’re just starting out and
you’re just about to hire that first person to have that be a camera person.
Here’s why: It’s rather easy to get started making videos by yourself or with whenever
a quick when you have line or out. An IPhone, a webcam etc. and all you need
to do is recruit a friend, loved one or little bully down the street you know that super
smart wicked kid that knows what about technology and all of us and get them to help you, whether
it’s co’z you’re gonna buy their lunch or you know pame a couple box under the table
get someone you know to help you with that. When it comes to bringing someone on your
team. I would definitely start on more the admin side or the data day test.
And there are two things I want you to do here. The first thing is to really look it
the things on your business that you’re doing, that you either A.
avoiding coz’ your graining doing it or you are doing it and it’s just killing your time
and your energy. Things that you know are imperative, their
essentials, their important but they don’t need to be done by you.
If you were to give yourself an hourly way it let say $100 an hour, could this task be
done by someone for far less than a hundred an hour and most the time the answer is YES!
Things like scheduling in your calendar or emailing back and forth between clients and
staff like that, can be outsourced, can be done by someone and doesn’t need to be done
by you. Now the other thing I want you to do, is take
any type of strength finding task to learn more about you, yourself and were you flourish
were you’re not float state and the things and the habit and the activities that you
do that totally grain you. Now for me where I really just my eyes were
totally open and my mind was blown. Was a, when I first discovered MYERS-BRIGGS and the
MBTI. MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE INDACATOR TEST and this
is really what i used at the core for myself and my business and even my personality to
learn more about who I am, why I take, what helps me friv, and what drains my energy.
Now I have put together a video, what you put like right here, somewhere on the page
and you click on that and that’s kind of a little assessment that i put together so you
can identify where your MYERS-BRIGGS type is there’s 16 to choose from.
And it’s seriously find out who you are, what your personality type is, you can actually
go in and see what your strengths are and what your weaknesses are.
And let me tell you, you want to avoid doing things that are considered your weaknesses.
You know it’s not about lifting up those weaknesses and getting better at the things that you’re
just not actually good out. You want to find other people that are not
actually good at those things; you can focus on your strength right? Pretty self-explanatory,
so there you have it. Start with someone in the admin space if you
want to use Iwanttogetmarried’s lingo here, someone who can help you with the day, the
day activities and YES when you get to a level where you can see an ora wife on your videos,
you can see when you leads are coming’ in and how many new leads each video brings and
how many new sales on your video brings. Well done it make sense to pay others to help you
improve the quality of your videos. Start with where you are now and always, always
be focusing on growing and taking things the next level. Thank you so much for watching
