Have you ever hired a team or even one person to help you in your business?

No?

Maybe...you’ve been doing everything yourself in your business for some time now. Longer than you really should have.

But it’s not because you haven’t tried to find people to help you.

You’ve been on upwork.com, elance.com, and hiremymom.com, but you haven’t felt very  “lucky” in your search for the right person or people yet.

First thing is this - hiring is not an easy process.

Second thing - you are not alone in struggling through that process.

Third thing -  it IS something you have to do at some point if you want to grow beyond a “job-replacement” business. (believe me - I know this from personal experience!)

Every business owner gets to the point of hiring in different ways. Some people start finding help from the second they start their business. Some people start with interns. Others do everything as long as they possibly can...

When is the right time to hire someone for your business? The answer is different for everyone.

That's what we're talking about on today's episode.

This episode will give you some getting started advice you need to make sure you hire the right person for your Launch Manager.

As you know I’ve been managing launches for several years online and offline. Not only have I been involved with projects ranging from feature films, tv and video games but I’ve spent the past 6 years working as launch manager of some major online product launches.

People often tell you to hire a project manager - that will help.

But I get it when people meltdown, are unsure not only of -

  • How can i afford that
  • Where do I find someone
  • What qualities should I look for
  • What do I even give that person when they start
  • What will I do then?

In today’s podcast, I’ll talk to you about -

  • Why it’s so hard to find a good launch manager
  • The 3 things you can do to decide if you actually have to hire
  • An alternative to hiring a true launch manager
  • Qualities to look for in a launch manager
  • Questions you should ask someone who might be right in this role

If you've ever wanted to work on launches, need to hire someone or aren't sure if you could use the help of a launch manager, this episode is a great starting point!

Today, we’re continuing this conversation about working with people and why I believe if you have a clear way to communicate, collaborate, and invest in these people is so important.

There’s a better chance you’ll have a smooth running team during your launch and keep them long after!

 

And man, it takes forever to find those people, sometimes longer than we expect, right? So, let’s keep people once we find them!

 

In this episode I talk about:

 

  • Making that first investment in your business and hiring someone to help you

  • How to hire people and why it’s critical to get on board the hiring someone

  • Why even when you’re not creating something for sale, you still need help

  • What to do when you’re onboarding new hires

  • 3 ways to stay on track with your team

  • Tools to help your team collaborate and communicate better together

 

Plus you’ll find out why you can start all of these practices even if you don’t have a team yet...because really the habit, the system, the ritual only becomes easier to share with new people if you’ve got it together.


If you’ve been hanging around Periscope and on any of my latest scopes, then some of what I share may sound very familiar to you--since that’s what I’ve been talking about for the past week as I prep for a an all-new class I’m teaching on Training Your Launch Team.

How do you grow your business?

We hear about strategies to market your business better, building funnels that convert people into customers…

We know that we have to build our list, build the relationship with the people who sign up for our various free resources.

But what about team culture? Is it possible that the culture we create just by who we hire and how we work...can that lead to business growth too?

Ask companies like Zappos, AirBNB, and WeWork...and they’d likely answer a resounding yes.

Our guest on the podcast today is Josh Anderson who’s got experience with big development and sales teams at Microsoft and smaller, scrappier startups in the Seattle area.
