Today’s episode with Susan Drumm is all about the importance of building a business team!

To get her business from zero dollars to over a million dollars, Susan shares that she had to start thinking from a “team” mindset.

At the end of the day, it’s the quality of your team and the leadership you give them that makes the difference.

Or, as Susan puts it: “Hire with wisdom and fire with grace.”

In her coaching business, Susan worked with some of the top executives in Fortune 500 Companies and helped them to build a business team…

But sometimes as entrepreneurs we can think that things are “different” for us. We can be tempted to avoid hiring because our companies are too small, or we don’t have enough revenue to invest in a new hire.

Off The Charts Business PodcastSusan was exactly the same way – but here’s what changed: she noticed that a coaching colleague of hers was living a much more relaxed lifestyle and was taking 2-week vacations and enjoying the little things in life. The advice he gave her was a total game-changer: “Get yourself a team…because you can’t afford NOT to.”

After all, the growth of your business depends on your ability to focus on the things that only you can do.

And when Susan acted on that advice and began to build her business team, her revenue doubled in 6 months, and in 3 years was able to sell her first million-dollar consultancy.

It’s key for all business owners to remember that sometimes the key to taking your business off the charts requires you to build a business team. A smart, supportive, high-performance business team is often what separates a successful business from a wildly successful one.

So whether you’re a solopreneur or have a great team already established, you’ll love listening to Susan Drumm’s words of wisdom in this episode.
