OTE 49: What No One Is Telling You About Building A Team Who TRULY Gives A Crap

how to get a team to actually care about the business

You’ve been in this business for years. It’s your dream to not have a boss, to have levels of success you know your company can get you to, to have more freedom and choice in what you do… and you expect someone you hire to be just as excited about it as you are.

As much as my team cares about me, they didn’t start this journey with me and think “I can’t wait to get Joel his dreams today.” They aren’t like that.

They have their own dreams and aspirations. Your business is only a part of whatever they’re trying to accomplish. 

So, how do you get someone who has their own dreams, aspirations, goals, and desires to actually care? 

To feel like what they’re doing matters… even when you’re not around.

During today’s podcast, you’ll discover:

  • How to get your team to really care about the business…
  • How to look at your business on a better level…
  • What the lead source of motivation for your business is…
  • How to find motivation that doesn’t wane…
  • Who shouldn’t be in your business…
  • What makes people buy….
  • How to create an amazing culture…

get time back

OTE 47: How You Can Get Your Lost Hours BACK

OTE 47: How You Can Get Your Lost Hours BACK

get time back

Have you ever hired someone hoping to free up some of your time, only to realize that you had more time when it was just you? On this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we are going to be talking about a new program we are creating to teach you all about the #1 way to get your time back. 

We Can All Figure It Out

So many entrepreneurs get stuck in thinking that they aren’t ready to start hiring. It might be thinking that you can’t afford it, you assume all the work you’re doing has to be done by you, or you don’t know if you can manage people. 

At some point, I have believed in all of those things, and I was DEAD WRONG. 

There are many tasks in your business that you personally need to do, but there are also a lot of tasks you don’t need to be doing! 

I’ve seen entrepreneurs who do work that cannot be replicated, create systems that allow them to hire people and get amazing results. 

If they can figure it out, YOU CAN TOO.

My team and I have created a FREE 15-minute interactive one-pager to help you identify your business’s tasks that you can get off your plate RIGHT NOW!

Get Time Back 

There are so many times when you hire someone, and you’re so excited. You pay them all this money, you do all this training, and you spend ALL YOUR TIME managing them. 

You end up having LESS time than you did when it was just you doing everything. 

Our team at Owning The Edge is creating a training to show you what we did with early hires that actually opened up our lives.

We are putting all the information together on how we went from wasting money and time on new-hires to hiring people in a way that allowed us more freedom. 

Before we figured this all out, we were non-stop running. We spent all our time working on tasks we could have gotten other people to be doing, which really burnt us out. We weren’t growing as fast as we wanted to, and we weren’t doing the things we actually loved to do. 

We opened up the ability to stop and figure out which direction we wanted our business to be heading.

If you want to learn more about this amazing program we’re working on, go to owningtheedge.com/gettimeback

Time-Releasers 

The first people you want to hire for your business are not going to be experts in the field. 

You’re going to want to hire people that are time-releasers. Hire people to do tasks that are kind of monotonous but are required for the business. It might be outreach strategies, pulling analytics, creating reports of information to use so you can make the right decisions, or so many other things!

Whatever it is, you can find someone to help you from becoming bogged down and overwhelmed with all of these tasks. 

Hiring someone to get your time back is essential during the early stages of your business. 

You’re still trying to figure out so much of what’s going on. Your target market, your marketing strategies, your products/programs are still in beta mode. 

You need more time to start finding more customers and making more money before you can afford to start hiring those experts for your business, and hiring people to be time-releasers is really going to be a game-changer.

free up time and investing it back into the business

OTE 46: The ONE THING That Allowed Me To Get 15 Hours Back Every Week And Changed My ENTIRE LIFE.

OTE 46: The ONE THING That Allowed Me To Get 15 Hours Back Every Week And Changed My ENTIRE LIFE.

free up time and investing it back into the business

What would you do with an extra 15 hours back a week in your life? The answer to this question could determine how fast your business can grow. In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we are talking about how to free up some of your time and how to reinvest that time into your business.

The Day I Woke Up

I worked for as long as I can remember on an ongoing project that took up hours of my time every day. It wasn’t slowing down as our business grew, and I actually took on more stuff as our business grew and needed more done. 

I had to do more things than I was used to doing, and every time we had a new project, there was more for me to do. 

The tasks I needed to do easily took up 40 hours a week, and the work to grow the business was about 20 more on top of that. 

I was getting burnt out. 

I started to think that it would be possible for me to outsource some stuff and hire people to do parts of the business, taking up an insane amount of my time. 

We ended up hiring someone that didn’t really work out. 

Training them was draining. It took up more time than what we were initially spending, and the quality of the work they were doing just wasn’t up to par. When we hired them, we weren’t even clear on what tasks we wanted them to do. 

It was an absolute mess.

But we learned. We grew a little bit and were more sure of what tasks we needed to have covered. We had built more processes of how to do the work and how to do quality control. 

Once we had it together, we found an absolutely incredible VA, and it blew us away.

I remember the day that I woke up and suddenly had FREE TIME. I was so confused. I had no idea what to do with myself. It was a fantastic feeling. 

What Would You Do?

So, we successfully hired an amazing VA. She freed up so much more time in my day-to-day life. 

But what do I do with all this extra time?

If you take those 15 hours back and you take a break, YOU PROBABLY NEEDED IT.

Once you’re done with your break, look at what you really want in your business.

Once you hit this point, you are probably asking:

  • » How do I grow my business?
  • » How do I get more value out of what I’m doing?
  • » How do I scale?

If you can take those freed up hours and figure out how to make more money than it cost you to hire that person, you can hire another person. 

Have your new hires replace things you are currently doing and get that time back to reinvest it immediately into what it takes to make more money for your business. 

Down the line, you will narrow your tasks down to only things that you LOVE to do that are crazy dollar productive.
