WHEN IT COMES TO SCALING TO SEVEN FIGURES ONLINE, there’s a thin line between having a team and having the right team.
Influencers waste a lot of money on the wrong manpower.
The full-service agencies. The jack-of-all-trades executive assistant responsible for writing copy, managing social media & learning Facebook Ads. The website-designer cousin in charge of launching & selling online products. The experienced marketer brought in on a full-time, overly-generous salary ... whose first step was to go hire a team.
You certainly don’t have to have a pot of gold to build an author-centric business online, especially when starting out. But if you’re committed to building a seven-figure online business, you can’t do it alone.
A team is imperative, as you scale. However, there’s a thin line between having a team and having the right team at the right time. Everything hinges on who you hire & how you structure.
Who to Hire.
You may not need five people on your team immediately (or ever) to get to seven figures. However, you will need these five gift-sets on your team in some capacity.
1) THE Strategist.
Someone you trust with experience in the digital (and ideally eLearning) space that can transpose who you are and what you want to accomplish into an actionable plan.
It’s usually in your best interest to contract for this work, instead of bring someone in full-time or even part-time, for several reasons:
Proven experience & high-level strategy for the digital space isn’t cheap today.
To get the best out of a strategist, it’s best to isolate that gift rather than also hire them to manage or implement.
I recommend partnering with a strategist on a consulting basis, with enough engagement to earn the trust of your team, but not enough to bloat your overhead.
