Where did the saying "there is strength in numbers" come from? Readers, if you can find a source please share? There must be one of our more than 200,000 members who knows the answer to this. Now comes the time to implement the benefits of a team to your long term goals. While doing so it can be a difficult sword to swallow. First off, you must realize that this blade is double edged, precisely why you are delving into it's attributes to begin with. Double your exposure, double your efficiency and double your income, hopefully. YOU have your systems in place and they're working well. Some of us, while on the success track, have difficulty delegating effectively to others. This is where the balance becomes so important while building your team. It looks great to be at the top of the heap with arms outstretched at the pinnacle but that really is not what YOU wish to achieve. Be the leader for sure but know that you alone are balancing the new colleagues on your shoulders and extracting the best of each of your players. When YOU allow their expertise to shine with minimal directives on your part the team can flow, bend and grow as wonderfully as the graceful Willow tree, YOU are it's roots, firmly planted, allowing your pliable branches the room they need to absorb light, gusting and storm force winds. Your only function when you've accomplished placing the varied combinations in the proper direction will be to continue doing what initiated this action in the first place. The team does not need to be a "well oiled machine" think more of the dandelion and the ease with which it proliferates, a mere wisp of air and it's effectiveness is surrounding you almost without effort. Your desire to make a better life for yourself and leveraging your knowledge to help others does not need to be burdensome.
Your initial well orchestrated plan will be your destiny, Maestro.
Choose your team wisely and if you've planned correctly, know they'll wish to grow with YOU!
