Two Ways to Build a Winning Personal or Business Team

build a winning personal or business team

Today, we’ll discuss how to build a team for business and personal success. Throughout our coaching career at EntreResults, we’ve had the opportunity to coach a lot of business owners from a variety of industries. What we noticed is that only small businesses that have had the opportunity to grow, understand the significance of building a business team. They got a taste of how it is crucial to grow and thrive and they will make sure to have the best team members they can have!

On the other hand, self-employed professionals or very small business owners may be unsure of how to build a successful business team. Since building a team is essential for everyone, we’ll focus, in this article, on those of you who are either solopreneurs or have a few people on their team,  to help you expand your teams.

How to build a team for your business with little to no money? 

If you don’t have the budget to hire a large team, you might think that it’s hard to have one. Your concern is completely understandable but there are two ways that may help you build your team, regardless of your financial situation. These two methods would work for anyone: 

1. Putting together a business team of people that you don’t know personally 

Yes, people, you’ve never met in person! But, you have access to their knowledge. How?! Just take a look at your industry. Who are the thought leaders in it? These guys can be your best allies. 

Study how they interpret the latest updates in your industry, and what are their projections for the future. Examine their best practices, what books they’ve written, what videos they’ve created, and what online courses they’ve developed. This way, you get the best of the best in your own team!

I know it sounds a little bit funny to consider these people as part of your business team, but the resources they provide are priceless. 

In fact, I’m not just referring to business. This can also be applied to many other aspects of your life, as well. Take, for example, health. What resources are available to help you improve your health? How often do you check them? And so on. You get the picture!

2. Putting together a business team of people you know in person 

People that you can interact with. Whether it’s virtual, over the phone, or face to face, they are the ones who can directly assist you in getting to where you want to be in business. Some examples include your CPA, banker, business coach, lawyer, internet marketer, graphic designer, virtual assistant, etc. . As you can see, you may already have your business team members. 

Again, you can apply the same logic to other personal areas of your life, too. Let us use health as an example, for another time. Who’s on your team to help you lose weight and get in shape? Who can prepare you healthy meals? And, here we go!

So, what’s next?

Once you gather your team, schedule how often you should meet with them (virtually or in-person) in order to get the most out of your relationships.

When people fall short of their goals in business or other areas of their lives, it is often due to a lack of the right team members or the resources they consistently touch base with.

The bottom line, you can combine both methods to create a successful personal and business team. The first method includes thought leaders and their resources, while the second is about people you know personally and who can help you in a direct way.

Most importantly, I want you to immediately start building your team, have fun, and let your business and life prosper and flourish!
