The Christmas and New Year break is a time when we get together with our families and realise what’s important in life. We have opportunities for clear thinking and discussing life plans with people who are closest to us. Many of us will have a new outlook coming into the new year, feeling energised and will re-evaluate priorities both personal and business. You reach this point because you have people around you who you know and trust the most – your family and close friends. They are able to guide you towards the things that are most important to you and the things you enjoy.
Successful business people will commonly say that the key to their success is to surround themselves with good people. This is similar to having family and close friends on a personal level. In business, these are the people with the skills and experience who share your passion and compliment your weaknesses. Most importantly they are people you like and trust who offer insights into your ideas and help you to move forward in the best way. Like family, you can trust their judgement and respect their views. So if you are a small business how do you surround yourself with good people who you like and trust ?
There are ways to scale your resources so that you can surround yourself with good people at an affordable cost. There are many people who have many years of corporate experience who are offering their services on a consulting basis in all key areas such as Sales, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and IT. These people also have a range of industry backgrounds and many years of experience running businesses. In this way you can build a virtual “C” suite of Chiefs in your business with a vast range of experience who can form a powerful executive team. This solution is scalable, so as your business grows your team can grow with you.
