Unicorns Don’t Exist & How to Grow Your Dream Team

When it comes to hiring for your business, there are a lot of mistakes people make that hold them back from successful, sustainable growth. One of those being waiting for a “unicorn” to accept your offer and launch your business to amazing heights.


The bad news is, unicorns are super rare, and quite expensive. The good news is, you have more control in how outsourcing will improve your business than you think. And there are several approaches to ensure you hire people who will complement your mission and vision, and promote the growth of a healthy team and a thriving business.


Check it out below, and head over to my episode post on my instagram page {link} and share the tips and strategies you found most useful.

 Highlights from this Episode


I run down the types of things you can be outsourcing out both in business and at home in order to help manage it all.


  • This is not a one-and-done task. Review the list of what you need to do to be the most productive, and what you can hire out for and prioritize as you recognize the shifts in the things that will actually improve the flow of your day-to-day


  • Why you might be setting yourself up for failure if you’re looking for “a unicorn”


  • The best ways to start the hiring process-  knowing your value, vision, and boundaries and starting with your own network 


  •  Hiring for attitude, not for aptitude, and other important ways to learn if somebody is a good fit before you commit to hiring them for the long term


  • What to expect the rest of this season to help answer your questions on hiring and building your dream business. 


Captivating Quotes from this Episode:


7:11 If you don’t have a job description, if you don’t know what your company values are if you just have a loose idea of what you’re looking for, it’s typically not going to go great. [ look for hiring forms and Starter kit linked below to help you get clarity]


10:42 Something to think about when you’re interviewing is finding someone who has skills that are complementary to yours… don’t hire carbon copies of yourself, identify what your strengths are, and then find somebody who will complement those strengths. And you make a well-rounded whole with what they bring to the table. 


13:51 Now when you get started, I recommend a trial period…And you can see how everything’s going, how you work together. And you don’t necessarily have to commit to a long-term contract, or that you’re going to work with this person forever.


15:10 The time invested in training your people will be gold after it’s done. Because you’re going to get really clear on how you want things done. You’re going to be great at communicating those things, and you’re going to save buckets and loads of time in the future, by putting in a little bit of time upfront.
