How to Recruit the Best People for Your Business Team

I have received a lot of requests from my readers to talk about teams — more specifically, how to build and recruit for a team. If you want to be a solopreneur, work 24/7, and not reach massive sales growth, then this video isn’t for you.

However, if you want to grow your business into a successful empire, you’ve got to build a team comprised of the best people. So, how do you that? Where do you find these people? How do you attract them? Watch this video for more of my insight!

You can also pick up my bestselling book on this very topic, Team Code of Honor, where you learn how to create a team that’s effective, efficient, and high-producing. https://amzn.to/2TgYH4Y or on RDA Press https://rda-press.com/rda-bookstore/

Team Code of Honor: The Secrets of Champions in Business and in Life

Every great team, culture, society, religion or business that has endured time, adversity and challenge has always had one thing in common: a set of simple but powerful rules that govern the internal behaviors and expectations of that group. It is called The Code of Honor. We hear of these Codes when we think of things like The Ten Commandments, the Marine Corps or the Constitution.
Yet if sales is the number one skill in business, number two has to be the ability to bring ordinary people together to build a championship team. This does not happen by chance or by the simple accumulation of talent. The Code is the core ingredient to creating winning organizations.

The book is a step-by-step guide for any individual, group or company to actually create a Code of Honor specific to their team. The Rich Dad Poor Dad Advisor series was designed as a “how-to” series to empower individuals to succeed in the world of business and finance. “Team Code of Honor” is critical to this series because its processes bridge all facets of business, investment, entrepreneurship and even personal life. The book explains through graphic examples, stories and numerous case studies how a Code or set of rules is created, maintained, enforced and used for rapid and controlled growth of any entity.

The book is designed as an operating manual for putting any business team together. It steps you all the way from properly choosing players, to creating the Code, to increasing performance and to winning. Each chapter gives the team-specific assignments and examples so that by the time you have completed the book, your Code is in place and your team is operating at a true championship level.

Call a Timeout and Create a List of Goals

In my over 30 years of helping people and being on stage, there’s one thing that holds true. You may very well be your worst enemy. 

Do you ever wonder how to tackle income limitations in your business?

I tell clients all the time that the problem isn’t your marketing strategy or sales team. It isn’t any of the usual suspects at all. 

It may surprise you to learn that the biggest limitation on your income is you.

That’s right. 

The hardest sale you’ll ever have is selling … to you.

Especially on days when your confidence levels are low, and you just don’t feel like getting out of bed. But, if you manufacture a positive mood and attitude, you can turn that around.

So, the next time you’re in a slump here are a couple of ways to give your attitude a positive boost:

#1 – Call a Timeout

Try doing jumping jacks, running around the block, or even standing up where you are. Just do something that allows you to change your physical state. This, in turn, automatically unlocks your mental and emotional state.

Are you or your team feeling a little sluggish? 

Maybe you’re upset that the team is not doing so well?

Take a page out of my son’s football coach’s book – call a timeout.

Bring everyone together. Get the team jumping up and down, chant, or give each other high fives. Change their physical state to impact their mood and attitude.

#2 – Create a List of Goals

There are some days when you wake up and wonder why you’re doing all of this. 

Why go through the pain and the stress? Why not curl up in bed and forget about everything?

If you’re just having one of those days, it’s time to come up with your list. This list includes all the compelling reasons why you want that goal.

Because I …

Want to provide for my family.

Want my parents to be proud of me.

Want to prove to myself that I can accomplish this.

Whatever your reasons, it’s your motivation to get out and work at your goal. So, pull the list out whenever you feel your drive taking a dip. Remind yourself why you get out and do the things you do each day.

Are You Prepared?

Newspapers and cable news contain little to no positivity these days. Since mid-March, the coronavirus has taken over all the headlines.

But why? How can a tiny piece of RNA wrapped in a lipid layer cause so much damage?

There are any number of answers to this question. But there’s only one underlying cause:

The world wasn’t prepared.

If you look at the stats, you’ll recognize that the ill-prepared countries are the most affected.

But what does this have to do with you, apart from the fact that you’re encouraged to shelter-in-place or limit group activity?

Business basics are still working in the same way. But, your business is a lot more likely to fail if you’re ill-prepared.

Of all the things that you can do to grow your business, there are only two categories:

You’re either preparing or executing.

What do you think is going to happen if you attempt to execute unprepared?

You’re going to wander and lose your place. And you’d be lucky to get anything done at all.

Therein lies the problem – you don’t want to depend on luck to succeed.

There’s this inconvenient truth that everybody thinks execution is more exciting than preparation.

But that’s why you’ll have to put it aside. You’ll have to learn how to love both execution and preparation if you want to make it out there. You’ve got to love the sweat that you wipe off your face and the pain that you feel in your body when you do them.

Be aware that your hard work isn’t going to pay off every time. You might even have to make several sales calls before you get to a deal. And that’s fine! 

Learn to love and enjoy making the calls. It’s all part of that discipline again, which I talked about in the previous email. You want to get excited about making these calls yourself, rather than delegating all of them.

Through it all, you have to prepare before you execute. And you’ve got to love the preparation and the drill, in addition to the execution.

When you do, you’ll be ready for whatever the world throws at you.

Stay Strong,
