Episode 359: How to Build a Scalable Business and Reach the Next Level w/Allison Maslan
Scaling our business doesn’t mean we have to work more or grind harder. How we can take our current business and make it scalable? What types of businesses fit the scalable model? Why do the owners of bigger businesses step out of production, and what does their role become?
In this episode, business owner and Self-Made Magazine Top Entrepreneur, Allison Maslan, talks about how to get to the next level with your business.
Business owners are changemakers. -Allison Maslan
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
We can’t scale unless we put together a team (12:00-13:10)
Once we reach a higher level and want to scale, we can’t do everything by ourselves. If we try, we’ll only end up burned out. We have to replicate what we do through a team. To do so, we need the right systems and processes, as well as competent people who are able to implement them.
Why people leave our team (16:00- 18:00)
The best way to keep turnover rates low and get the best from our team is to share our vision with them. If we can get our team excited about the work they’re doing, they’ll tell others about us and become more loyal and willing to go the extra mile for us.
We need to say “no” to projects that aren’t aligned with our vision (20:00-23:20)
Learn to say “no” to clients or activities that aren’t priorities. It doesn’t mean that we have to sacrifice things we want to do for our business, but it does mean we can’t do it all right now. Adopting this attitude not only frees up our plate, but also helps us gain the respect of our clients.
