Yes, I’m one of those weirdos that likes paying her bills each month… (maybe it’s because I almost became an accountant after I got my business degree. 😉
My favorite – and highest – bills to pay each month are for my team.
And I LOOOOOVE to pay those bills. Even on the months where money feels a bit tight or I could use it elsewhere.
Here’s the thing – I made a decision in my business years ago that it would be not be just me running the show.
I ran my business solo for many years. And truth be told I was pretty darn good at it. Figuring things out. Getting stuff done.
But as my business grew… it became obvious that I had a choice to make:
- Keep it all on my plate and work more and more hours
- Hire the right people to help me out
Now as much as I love my work, I don’t want to do it 24/7. I’m a mom of two girls, and I enjoy spending time with them (well… most of the time, ha!)
So I chose the second option, started building out my team and have never looked back.
It’s been 10 years now, and even though people have come and gone – and I’ve made my fair share of hiring mistakes – I would never go back to it being just me.
I love the people I’ve been blessed to work with. I love their commitment to our goals. And I love not having to do the things I no longer want to do! #keepingitreal
This is why I love paying my team each month – because it means I don’t have to do this all alone.
As business owners we have a choice to make.
When there are things to do we are going to pay for it – the question is, how do we want to pay?
Do we want to…
- Pay with our own time & energy – doing it all ourselves
- Or pay a team who can do the work for us
I’m curious – who do you have on your team right now?
