How Can I Grow My Business?
My name is Steven Kohnke and I'm one of the business coaches here at Denver, Business Coach. One of the questions we get a lot here is how do I scale my business? [or how do I grow my business?]
One of the ways to look at this is through just a couple of components.
The first [Component] is Doing the Job. This is when you are first actually doing the actual job, wearing the many hats and really trying to figure out what you like and what you don't like about the job as a whole.
Second component is Record the Job. You're simply beginning to compartmentalize the position itself and really understanding the roles and responsibilities, ins and outs of the job itself.
The third component is to Systemize and Organize the job. Basically, here you're making it as effective as you know how. At this stage, you should be thinking about how to train for this job in the future. Basically what that means is if this job is highly procedural, it would be beneficial for you to record yourself executing the procedures either through a video of yourself or of a screen record of you executing the procedures. Therefore, when you are ready to hire someone for this position, they can access these videos in these training videos throughout training and then use them as a reference point.
The fourth component is Hiring for the Job. You should see our series on How Do I Hire the Right Person? for more details on how to do this right.
The fifth component is Training and Onboarding for the Job. Now, your onboarding process should be one of the most important processes you have in your business. The role of the onboarding process is to get your new hire trained up as proficient as possible as quickly as possible so that they can execute the job and you can get back to doing what you do best.
Now the sixth component and really the final component of doing this well, scaling up is Managing the Job. And this is where you want to be. This is where you become the leader for the person you hired who is proficient in their work and help them succeed in their job so that you can get back to focusing on what it takes to grow the business itself.
