Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #139

30 Jun 2015 Uncategorized

Team building isn’t only for corporations. In fact, you probably already have a team. Your CPA or tax attorney is a team member; the person who does your graphics or store design is part of your team; your mail carrier is part of your team (yes, you often receive better service when you cultivate a relationship with the delivery people). If you work with your honey, you have a team. If your kids help, you have a team. Your local Office Depot or other office-supplies store is part of your team. If you use any outside contract labor, you have a team. I suggest you make a list of everyone who helps you get your goods to market. Include those who help you keep in compliance with the IRS or other entities. In some cases, you’ll also include your suppliers, if you use them frequently. Then take stock. Get rid of those cogs in the wheel who don’t meet your standards and replace them with a better alternative. You have a team, so manage it.
