Are you tired of being stuck in a dead end job or spend sleepless nights wondering how to provide for your family? From childhood, we are told to go to school, find a job and spend the rest of our working years desperately climbing the corporate ladder. Fortunately, this is not the only path towards a prosperous and fulfilling career. It is possible to build your own business, using a team of motivated individuals that are willing to combine efforts to ensure mutual success.
Stephen Richards Covey, expert entrepreneur, educator and author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, once said, “Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success.” What Covey is trying to express is that, to build wealth, it is important for professionals to come together as a team, share their skills and work together to build the greatest cash flow. The effort of one man is no match for the combined, committed efforts of several team players.
Of course, this might leave you wondering what cash flow actually is. The answer to this question is simple. It is the money you are left with after paying all of the expenses necessary to operate your business. In order to maximize profits, you not only have to build a team, but you must team up with the most capable players. For example, if you own a rental property, you probably worked with a loan officer to purchase the property. You may also enlist the help of a property manager, cleaning crew, maintenance team and financial advisors to help manage your assets. These professionals are all part of your team, and their performance affects your income and long-term success.
When starting a business, you must choose experienced, highly skilled professionals to join your team. In fact, it is vital to choose teammates whose knowledge and skills exceed your own. That way, you can depend on your team to help you earn passive income by doing most of the problem solving and strategizing while teaching you the best business practices. Also, because it is always possible for one teammate to drop the ball, it is important to have backups. For instance, should your financial advisor begin leading you astray, you need to have another advisor who you know will perform. Whether you are starting a business or hoping to increase your profits, it is essential to understand that teamwork is why dreams work.
