The moment you decide to follow your dreams + focus on your goals you also need to be building your success team. I mean, think about anyone you know who is incredibly successful.
Do these people do everything themselves? Do they do it all themselves?
Any successful person you can think of will have a success team around them.
And it goes without a second thought that you too need to be building your own success team in whatever venture you choose. Whether it is lawyers, accountants, advisors, mentors or experts, it is vital that you have this team around you.
Quite simply, you can’t do everything yourself. There is no way you can have the level of expertise you need to succeed in all the areas you need.
By picking a team of advisors to help you and guide you, you give yourself the time to focus on your area of speciality.
So what should you look for in your success team? Someone who
- You feel a connection to and comfortable with
- Is dedicated to keeping up to date with their professional education
- Has an excellent track record in their field
- Has excellent references that you can check up
- Integrates well with the rest of your success team
Where would you find your success team?
The best way is to find them from personal recommendation. Look at other successful people in your field and who is advising them.
A success team isn’t just lawyers and accountants, it could also be your cheerleading squad. This is friends, family and colleagues who support you and believe in what you are doing. It’s much better to have them around you than naysayers who will drag you down and try to stop you succeeding. Discard them and get your own set of cheerleaders.
Surrounding yourself with a success team will give you the opportunity to focus on what you do best for yourself and your business. Your success team can focus on what they do best, freeing up your time and efforts to become even more successful.
