What comes to your mind when you hear something like “it’s time to scale your business”? Oftentimes, business owners like you are nervous to grow and scale because you feel like it’s going to come with so much trouble, headache, frustration, and so much challenge. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can scale your business without friction or resistance.

You can make it happen. 

Growth does not need to be that challenging. Yes, it should push you and make you think, expand you and your entrepreneurial journey, but it does not have to be done with a lot of friction. If you are thoughtful and strategic in growing your team you will scale without friction. I’ve done it and it is an art

When you start to get the precise processes and systems in place to create boundaries around yourself and your company. When you understand that you and the leaders in your company are teaching and spreading the proper mindset. When you build a company where your people feel part of the company because scaling starts and ends with individuals

Scaling requires building a strong foundation, instilling the company beliefs and behaviors in your team, the right team, and continuously perfecting the processes and systems in your business. 

So what can you do to make sure your foundation is solid? It’s the number one thing I talk about in our Team Maker Formula, which is our digital 10 module video course where I walk you through the seven pillars of your business technology. The feedback that I’ve heard from this program is amazing. We scrubbed through every single nook and cranny of your business on your own time at your own pace. It’ll help you analyze the pieces of your business to find operational gaps, align everything better to grow without friction. These pieces include Technology, Finance, Marketing, Sales, Operations and Process, The Team, and You: The Leader. 

In addition, in the next modules, you’ll learn and will always have the key to determine your next best hire, create the correct job description, set a standard operating procedure for the interview and hiring process through time blocking. You’ll gain access to a template to help you track where you are posting the job and the candidates who are responding to stay organized, know how to kill the interview process, evaluate how to review and rate the candidates to narrow it down to our final three, discuss the top 10 interview questions to ask the final three candidates and to further determine if they are your next best hire. And finally, know the best offer, negotiation, and onboarding process to set them up for success. So good, right?

Don’t try and grow your business if your foundation is still not solid, don’t try and grow if you don’t know where you’re going and where you want to grow. Being thoughtful, being strategic, analyzing, editing, and auditing your existing foundation are what will help you grow without friction.
