I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by the folks at Entrepreneur magazine on the importance of finding a business mentor. You can read the full interview in their article 10 Ways a Business Mentor Creates Explosive Results. One of the most important points I made in the interview was that mentorship is a two-way street. As a CEO, my mantra is to always add value to the lives of others. No relationship can succeed if you’re only in it to benefit yourself. Give. And do so wholeheartedly. Applying that philosophy to my personal and professional relationships is one of the keys to my success in juggling my many roles as a CEO, an entrepreneur, a mentor, and a parent.
Business ownership is an inescapably human-intensive endeavor.
Knowing when to use your resources is just as important as understanding your relationships with the people you work with. I wanted to share a few resources that really worked for me as a business owner. Here’s your first business resource: As a business owner, you want to focus on what you do best. But, if you have employees, you already know that you have a lot of juggle…
- Federal government rules to comply with,
- State rules to comply with
- Calculating payroll
- Hiring and onboarding
- Keeping your team happy and productive
- …And of course, you still have to pay all the bills.
That’s why this resource completely changed my business and my life for the better.
You can hire an outside human resources team to take the burden off of you!
Outside human resources can take care of the paperwork, the personnel data, the regulations and all the time-consuming details that keep you from focusing on your company and the real purpose of the relationships you’re forging. And it leaves you in complete control over the big decisions about what people will be part of your team. That frees you as the leader to focus on the things that really matter to your business. But investing in outside human resources has benefits for everyone on the team. Your employees will get BETTER benefits at a LOWER rate. You will have the support of a legal team that will represent you as needed, just in case.And if you do have to let an employee go, your state unemployment account is unaffected. You have an HR partner on-call to answer questions and to help you to make sure that you’re compliant with all state and federal regulations.It’s an easy way to stay on track.
