Welcome to Magnificent May in the Authentic Selling® The Podcast where we answer questions submitted by the Authentic Selling community so that you have what you need NOW. We are back from an awesome April where we delivered the best Free Sales Training to you and your business. If you missed it you can still get access to How To Host a Discovery Call that Sells (and so much more) right here.
In this episode we are talking all about getting the right support in your business.
DISCUSSION POINTS FOR THIS EPISODE:
01:45 What does support in your business look like? It could be hiring a Virtual Assistant, Online Business Manager, Facebook Ads Strategist, Coach and so on.
3:00 What is the BIGGEST myth about hiring support? Well, no matter if you are ready to hire a contractor or not, check out how I bust these myths.
4:00 Myth #1: The process to hiring the most amazing support professionals is a super easy process. We hear “Just outsource that” quite often, but it’s not quite that simple to just go out, snap your fingers and hire the next Mary Poppins for your business. Now, it doesn’t have to be over complicated either and we’ll be talking about some ways to put ease into the hiring process in next week’s Authentic Selling TV.
6:45 Myth #2: Hiring someone will solve all of your problems. Truth – Bringing in the right person, at the right time, can make things easier. However, you need to know what you need and who to hire before you start searching to bring someone on into your business.
10:00 As the CEO of your business you need to know where in your business you need help? Don’t get wrapped up in Shiny Object Syndrome and hire based on impulse.
11:10 Before you decide to hire support, first outline all of the things that happen in your business. Like Adrienne Dorisson and Mike Michalowicz talk about making your business Run Like Clockwork, you need to know all of things that make your business run like clockwork. Then go back and highlight the things that you enjoy.
15:22 Next, listen the exercise that Ali Brown had me do for my household. It as super helpful when things were getting behind at home to help my family identify where we could bring in help in our home.
17:00 As the CEO of your business, if I said to you “Hey, what are the 3 biggest concerns in your business right now?” You need to be able to say I need support with #1, #2, #3.
24:00 Listen to my ultimate Insta-Pot #fail (a lesson about how not everyone is mean to do everything)

30:20 Listener Question #1 submitted by Zack Shay – I started my business out as a business coach which involved writing my own copy and website. After getting some great responses and finding that I really enjoyed the copy writing and design process, I decided to shift away from coaching and more into copywriting and branding for my clients. How would you suggest someone handle a shift like that in their business when it comes to marketing to your current audience.Hiring the right person, at the right time, for the right reason is a whole new level of happiness.
