Maybe you've even thought about building a team, but are paralyzed by the thought of making costly mistakes...

"Should I hire employees or independent contractors?"

Hiring isn't a good time for a game of eeny-meeny-miny-mo. Confidently make the right choice for your business, and avoid costly fines, back taxes, and legal fees.

"How do I know if I'm hiring and onboarding the right people?"

It’s important to onboard the right people to maintain great retention on your team, and so you don’t have to keep paying to train new team members. Remember, we're looking for more than just people we like.

"Can I really afford to scale by building my team?"

As your business evolves, your vision of your company changes. Many solopreneurs feel that scaling with a team (vs just taking on more clients or raising prices) is both risky and costly. Let us show you how to scale well!

"What if I'm not up to the task of both growing my business and leading a team?"

Don't risk declines in your business as your team experiences growing pains. It's important to remember to pour into your leadership skills so you can continue to positively influence your team and always have the opportunity to scale. 
 

Good news - You don't have to build your team alone!  Leave the overwhelm behind and let us guide you through setting your team up properly from the start.

Sound familiar?

Your business is making an impact on the world.

BUT DOING IT ALL ON YOUR OWN IS RUNNING YOUR LIFE INTO THE GROUND. HOW DO YOU..

Bring on people who love your company as much as you do?

Trust someone else with your brand's reputation?

Know your team will be hard-working, driven, and creative?

Have full confidence your team can execute without you.

When you build a team for your business, you get your balance back. Free up valuable brain space for dreaming, for strategizing, and for materializing the next phase of your journey.

You deserve to:

Work less. Make more.

We want you to take off on those weekends at the lake with your family without sacrificing your income or your brand.

Take a step back.

You’ve dreamed of earning a substantial income while doing work you’re passionate about. With a team, you can live that dream while breathing normally.

Become a respected leader.

Great leaders are really just great coaches. Once you discover how to coach your team, you can serve them and your clients well.

buy the course!

We teach you how to lead your team like an empowering coach, instead of an order-barking boss.

When you think of “leadership,” what pops into your mind? Professional growth seminars that come with a hefty price tag and too many growth charts and workflows to count? 

Complicated + boring = unattainable. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

That’s why we’ve developed the 12-week Building Your Team Course. Trust us, there are deep pitfalls to dodge when building your team — the kind of pitfalls that can ruin your business.

We want you and your business to have a huge impact, and you can do that by surrounding yourself with the right people.

Warning: Before you go on...

This program is not for you if you’re looking for the run of the mill internet course you’ll buy and never use.

The 12-week Building Your Team Course is the real deal as many of our past students will account. (Don't believe us, ask them!) We teach you everything you need to know about growing a dependable, efficient, passionate team.

Laine P.
