Why I Didn’t Hire Sooner

Behind the Scenes of Hiring: Part 2

The Growing Your Team Podcast Episode 71

At Growing Your Team, there’s one thing we believe in very strongly that might surprise you. 

We believe that not every business should have employees or long-term contractors on their team. Or, at least not yet. 

Hiring a team member is not a measurement of success. Hiring team members is a result of building a well-structured, successful business.

Business success is making decisions that help you maximize profits and put you on a path for revenue growth. And sometimes, this means staying a business of one even though those around you are starting to hire. 

You need to hire when your business tells you that it’s time to hire – not before and not after. 

In episode 69, I kicked off a series of episodes taking you behind the scenes as I hire our first employee here at Growing Your Team. In that episode, I shared why now is the right time to hire a team member. In this week’s episode, you’ll hear why I didn’t hire sooner and how I structured my business so I could scale without a team until now. As a bonus, you’ll also hear how I determined what my new position should look like and what tasks they would own.
