From: Ali Brown, Los Angeles, Calif.
Dear Entrepreneur, Solo-preneur, or Small Business Owner,
Whether you're just starting your very first business or you're a seasoned entrepreneur, there's one thing you've come to realize...
Just think about your to-do list right now. It's likely you could easily come up with 20 things to work on for your business: you could promote your business on Facebook and Twitter for a few hours, make cold calls to potential clients, study your online marketing stats, proof your proposal for a new client, prepare a past-due invoice, write an article for your ezine, register for an upcoming educational workshop—the list goes on and on...
And that doesn't even include the REAL work you have to do—the money-making work that requires you to actually sit down and focus. It's no wonder that if you ask most business owners what they would wish for, it's... HELP!
If you try to run your business by yourself, you'll stay in the same place forever! To grow your business, you must get some help.
The GOOD NEWS is...
As you read this, there are millions of people ready and able to help support YOU and your business. But before you bring them on board, there's a lot to think about:
How do you know if you're really ready to hire someone?
Should you look for a contractor or an employee?
Which tasks are safe to delegate to someone else, and which ones should you keep "close to the vest"?
Should you have a team member work in your home office?
What kind of forms do you need to fill out to properly handle employee-related income taxes?
What kind of working agreement should you have them sign?
If they're working virtually out of their own home, etc., how can you trust that they'll be working when they say they are?
It's a fact that 99% of my entrepreneur clients say that hiring and managing a team for their business is one of their BIGGEST challenges. But they know it's necessary to run a business.
For starters, it's hard to find smart, loyal people to bring on board who will share your level of passion and commitment in your business. Plus, how are you supposed to run your business AND all of a sudden be a top-notch recruiter, manager, and human resources department all in one? And what about all those legal issues that you must be aware of, so you don't get hit with a lawsuit?
It's no wonder most business owners wait until the last minute to get the help they need. And too often, they hire the wrong person for the job, and are unclear about what the job is. The end result? It's a waste of time, money, and energy for everyone involved.
In this information packed program, I share everything I've learned to grow my team, from my very first part-time hire, to the super team of 8 employees I have today.
Here's just a sampling of what you'll learn:
The three types of functions your business survives on, and how to decide which area you should focus on delegating first
TIPS FOR HIRING your perfect admin, executive assistant, or virtual assistant (VA) to support you and your growth
The four phases I went through when growing my team—and that you can follow to grow yours (When I started my business it was just me and my Virtual Assistant (VA), Liz. A few years later it was 4 of us on the team. Today I have 8 fulltime employees, and you'll understand how I gradually grew it to that level, and how you can too.)
The top hires you need right away that you probably haven't even thought of (Don't worry, they don't have to be fulltime!)
The type of boss you naturally are, so you can create a schedule and arrangement that works for you and your new hire (You'll take an assessment that will shine a light on your leadership style.)
How to craft a compelling job posting that SELLS the position for you, while pre-screening for only high-quality applicants
WHERE to look offline and online for virtual assistants, creative professionals, and hard-to-find specialists (You'll get a list of sites and ideas for leads that you can start working on immediately.)
Interviewing dos and don'ts (tips and red flags to make sure you are asking the right questions, and making a sound decision that you won't regret later!)
The EXACT TOOLS I use with my team for project management, file sharing, managing password access, calendaring, and more

A MASTER delegating checklist of marketing, managerial, and administrative tasks (You can cherry-pick the ones you need for YOUR business—and hand them off to your new hire as soon as they "clock-in"!)
The specific IRS forms you need when working with Independent Contractors and temps, so you can get them set up and working for you in no time
Everything you need to know to manage payroll for a full-time employee (you DON'T have to do this on your own, but I'll show what you need to do, and where you can go for additional help)
What YOU are responsible for when it comes to taxes, including income taxes, self-employment taxes, employment taxes, and unemployment taxes

Tips to bond with your team, virtually and in-person, so they feel invested in new projects and the big-picture vision of the business
LOW-COST WAYS to show your team you love them (this is one of the best parts of being a boss—and it will pay you back tenfold!)
How to conduct a professional performance review where everyone feels GOOD with the outcome (there IS a way to do this without anyone getting hurt ;)!)
Low-cost options for providing health care to your employees (there are some good resources out there, and I'll also give you a few tips on how to save)
Other benefits you can offer your employee, aside from retirement plans and medical insurance (to make your business a MAGNET for enthusiastic, smart, and loyal workers)
