Does Teamwork Make the Dream Work? (FS015)
Your business may just be another way to play with yourself. Harnessing some team-work tactics could be a huge multiplier for you.
I was alone in my business trying to make a thing on the side.
It was my effort, my reward, my isolation, my procrastination. It was all up to me.
Any success (or failures) were all mine. “What should I do next?” My question. My answer.
It was lonely. My friends thought I was weird. My parents worried about me. My wife kept giving me that look… that, “I love you, but…” look.
Fast forward 5 years, I’m in a team with Corbett and Caleb and I’ve never been more productive, more on fire, more in tune.
It was a huge shift for me, but the results speak for themselves.
Does teamwork make the dream work or is that just something high school basketball coaches say? How would playing with a team (instead of yourself) make your work better?
You may not need a full team or partnership to get the multipliers that come with teamwork. More on that in the episode. Enjoy!
