Who, Why, and How
Most of us began our businesses as one-person shows. We were the marketers, the account executives, the administrative assistants, and the bookkeepers. But as our businesses grow, wearing all the hats begins to feel overwhelming, and you may be feeling like you’ve maximized your bandwidth.
So where do you go from here? It may be time to build a team. Whether that’s with one or two contractors or a team of full-time employees, building a team takes strategy and practice. In today’s episode of Branding Outside the Box, we’re going to unpack the ins and outs of building a successful team.
This episode was made possible by Quickbooks*. Determining whether or not you’re financially ready to hire a new team member takes careful monitoring, forecasting and saving. Before hiring anyone, I recommend setting aside the amount you intend to pay your new hire for at least 3 months before you actually hire them. That way, you’ll feel secure that you can afford it, and plus, now you have a bit of an extra cushion! Quickbooks makes it easy to track profit and loss, create forecasts, and ensure your invoices are paid on time, which means you can pay your people on time. You can even run your payroll, withhold and pay taxes, and monitor their sick and vacation days, all in one place.
