October is for GROWTH!
October 1st is here and you know what that means. New Month = New Theme. And this month is a topic you don't want to miss...GROWTH!
Last month we asked the TRIBE... What does growth mean to you & your business? Here's a snippet of what we heard.
Figuring out how to scale our business without sacrificing the customer experience
When & if to hire a new team member and how to structure that hire when we do (contractor, part time or full time)
Hiring additional team members to accommodate new clients
Driving sales to grow our business
Creating new products (or services) to sell
Expanding my network & collaborating with others
Growing my email list & nurturing it consistently
There we two strong topics that emerged and we're going to tackle these head on this month!
Growing Our Teams
Growing Our Leads
