Imagine this: things are taking off in your business. Your client list is growing. Your workload is growing. You’re hitting your stride but now you’re wondering, “how the heck am I going to get everything done!?!”

My guest, Kelly Roach is going to simplify how to build an unstoppable team.

She also teaches us why it’s so (darn) important to do it early on, BEFORE you find yourself in a pinch.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Why you should adopt a “bigger than you” mentality with your business and how that will help you grow
  • How to design an “unstoppable dream team” and what changes you need to make (as the business owner) in order to get there
  • What role ‘simplifying’ plays in all of this
  • What the 6 Pillars of Effective Leadership are and how they will help you build and retain your unstoppable team:
    • training,
    • teaching,
    • coaching,
    • mentorship,
    • structure,
    • accountability
  • How to set up a thriving company culture as a small business, especially if you work with remote teams or virtual assistants

Kelly was recommended by Anna Lundberg in this episode, and is an absolute powerhouse. Her global work with small businesses helps them grow in massive ways.


My challenge for you this week:

Review your values, missions and vision. How can you make sure these things are reflected when you are building your team?
