One of the first entrepreneurial book I read is called “The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It.” One of the main topics is about where you fulfill every role in your company from the ground up. You master that position, document it, make a user manual, put someone in that role, and do the same for the next role. You do that from the bottom up until you are at the top. Heck, you can even put someone else in the CEO role and let it run on its own. It’s called franchising. It’s just like McDonald’s does, but you can do it for any business.
What’s key about this is being able to expand. In my head, I call it my “cookie cutter approach.” It’s the overarching plan of my business. Livermore Rocks! is my first cookie. Once I get that molded into a viable revenue generating product, I then use that as a template for my cookie cutter. I did all the hard work to get that first cookie, so it makes send to copy it right?
In order to do this, I will need to put people in these roles. I’ll need writers, I’ll need administrative help, I’ll need a team.
That’s my plan to building a team of awesomeness! 🙂
From Aug 6 through Sep 5, I’m participating in The Suitcase Entrepreneur’s 30 Day Blog Challenge. Every day, for the next 30 days, I’ll be posting about a new topic of the day about building my own online business. I’m looking forward to learning new tips and trick for my new blog, Livermore Rocks! So join me on my quest as I take on the 30 Day Blog Challenge. Enjoy -Kirk
