Forming The Best, Most Productive Start Up Team

Your guide to creating the right team for your start up.

In big business, people can get lost in the shuffle. If one person is inefficient, odds are there’s another individual who can pick up the slack. That’s not the case in a start up, though. In the same way you value every dollar that comes through, each member of your team is crucially important.

To help you put together the best, most productive team at your start up, here are just a few things you should do.

  • Choose The Right People. We know you’d love to pick your friends, but don’t – unless your friend is already highly trained and deeply passionate in your specific industry. When you’re getting started, imagine each team member as the head of a future department, and pick a person who has the drive, focus, and skills to build out that department for you.
  • Empower Your Team. Once you get the right people together, be flexible with them. Since you have a vision for your start up, it can be tempting to micro-manage. Don’t, or you will not just annoy your team but you’ll also limit their productivity. Empower them to work how they work best. For example, if one of your team members is a night owl, let him or her shift hours to work later at peak productivity.
  • Don’t Be Too Involved. Similarly, you’ll probably want to hold a host of staff meetings and offer guidelines every step of the way. The problem, though, is that your team’s time is precious. Those little interruptions add up and detract from their ability to get stuff done for you. Stop bugging them unless it’s absolutely necessary! Trust us, an email will suffice.

Guidance For The New Entrepreneur

Building Your First Business? Use This Resource

When you become a business owner for the first time, you feel a lot of things. Accomplishment. Excitement. Fear. Anticipation. These are all normal sentiments, but harnessing the positive and ditching the negative will be a key to helping you be the best leader you can be for your new venture. To help you and your business grow, we would like to offer these suggestions for the first-time business owner.

  • Stay The Course: People love entrepreneurs. When your friends, family, and acquaintances hear you are starting a business, you will likely find you get pitched a lot of new business ideas. Some of them will likely seem enticing, but in order to help your main business flourish you need to focus on it. Allow yourself the freedom to say no so you can keep your attention on doing one thing well, rather than a dozen things poorly.
  • Get A Speech: While everyone likes an entrepreneur, nobody loves a rambler. Learn how to explain your business well in 30 seconds or less, and you will find you are more effective with potential investors and partners.
  • Stay Streamlined: As the money starts to come in, it can be tempting to live the high life. Instead, keep your expenses as minimal as possible and bolster your company’s savings to allow for future growth, not fleeting gratification today.

Do not worry that you need to figure out success all on your own. For expert guidance on the right path, contact Mike Stromsoe’s Unstoppable Profit Producer Program.
