What’s wrong with keeping it small?
On this episode, Justin Udy shares his growth story, the lessons he’s learned, and why he’s built his business around his life.
Three Things You'll Learn from Justin Udy
Focus on more than just getting out of production
It’s good to plan an exit from production, but don’t let it be your only focus. As you grow and get closer to the goal, it’s important to start incorporating new goals so that you have a greater purpose.
Business growth is about growing in your own capacity to lead people
One of the biggest challenges that comes with growing a business is putting on more hats. As more people come in, it’s not just about bringing in more business, but also leading and managing people. It’s an important shift that you’ll need to be prepared for.
"I do it, you do it, we do it."
When you hire someone to take over production, the last thing you want to do is hold their hand through it, but some amount of guidance is necessary. The rule should be “I do it, we do it, you do it.” Without that process, so many things can fall through the cracks.
As we scale up our businesses we’ll experience a higher demand on our time, responsibility, and abilities. It’s easy to put our focus only on getting out of production. The truth is, the thing that will get us out of production isn’t just more business; it’s leadership, systems, and management. We have to pour into our people so they are well-equipped to run the business next to us. This happens by systematically and intentionally training them and bringing them into the system.
When growing a team there will be aches and pains, but why sacrifice your time longer than needed and in the wrong areas? REBS is here to help you grow, and grow your team, so you can get the true balance in your life back. Do you want help?
