Stepping off the Ground: Your Next StartUp Biz Step

How to Start a Business

Every entrepreneur imagines their business concept growing into a successful international company. Global corporations like Apple and Microsoft may have started with big ideas, but they became successful because their founders followed up with solid action. Budding business leaders such as yourself can take some of these steps to transform ambitious ideas and dreams into reality.

You Have an Idea for a Startup Biz

Brainstorming a new business idea is clearly the first step. Now that you’ve passed this point, it’s time to lay the real groundwork. Make a business plan to outline what you’re going to do, how you intend to do it, and of course, how you’ll make money by doing it. The Small Business Administration (SBA) has a great page with plenty of details about all of the things a business plan should contain. Among them are the company overview, market analysis, production and sourcing, financial projections, marketing plans and other essential aspects of business.

Business plans are often required by lenders and investors, but another big reason to write one is for your own benefit. You may be surprised at how many aspects need to be considered. It’s easy to allow some integral business components to fall through the cracks if you begin your startup without developing an organized and detailed plan.

You’ve Got a Business Plan

Now that you have a business plan, it’s time to figure out how to fund your new endeavor. Venture capital, bank loans, SBA loans and even grants can be considered. A small business credit card can offer short-term capital as well as business-friendly rewards.

One of the best ways to get funding is to seem like you don’t need it, according to Forbes. Instead, try asking for advice from potential investors, and make your pitch as you do so. This will make the investor more likely to tell you to go ahead—and provide some funds to allow you to do so.

You Have Funding and Are Ready to Hire Employees

Working for a startup often requires long hours. It is also risky for employees because many startups don’t get to the next stage. Therefore, you need to look for a special breed of person to work with you during this energetic and uncertain time. To find the perfect person, you will need to ditch some of the conventional wisdom.

Instead of seeking people who can answer your questions in the perfect way, have them perform a task for you without direction, suggests The Daily Muse. Look for the person who can actually do the task or who shows the most potential. After all, anyone can learn how to respond to common interviewer questions by reading advice on job sites. You need to find the person who can back it up.

Lose the notion that an advanced college degree always signifies a better candidate. In many cases, eager and energetic young people who have not yet completed their degree are better matches for startups.

This advice is merely the tip of the iceberg as you develop your business from an idea to a profitable company. You’ll find that many steps come naturally as you progress. Be persistent and use your common sense, and you will have a fighting chance of ending up with a successful business.

How to Create High Performing Teams

If you don’t know how to create high performing teams then managing a staff will quickly feel like a burden and drain your time, energy and money. But, the alternative is just not acceptable either.

You don’t want to resort to wearing all the hats in your business or you’ll quickly burn out and so will your sales. Trying to grow your business all by yourself is definitely the LONG, SLOW way to go. Even if you are running a solo practice you’ll grow your business much faster with a small team of just you and one other person.

When you create high performing teams you no longer have to “babysit” your staff or waste precious hours each week chasing after them to meet deadlines.

If you want to know the secret to creating high performing teams — onsite employees or a virtual team, then don’t miss this week’s Q&A episode.

This might sounds like a simple question, but it is definitely not a one answer solution.

In this week’s Q&A episode you’ll discover:

* Strategies for holding your virtual assistant (and onsite team) accountable, so you don’t have to constantly follow up with them.
* How to build team morale even when everyone is living thousands of miles away from each other.
* Plus! I have a special free 11-point checklist you can download to help you create your very own high performing team!

Click the audio or video below.

Then, be sure to share your questions and comments below. I’d love to know what your biggest challenges are when it comes to managing your team.

Yoon ~

PS. Ok, I gotta tell you … I am loving recording these Q&A episodes for you!

This feels so much more interactive for me to hear your questions directly from your voice messages. The feedback I’ve gotten so far is that you love being able to listen on the go. And, many of you shared you like that I do a much deeper dive on the audio than I can typically cover in a text only blog.

I have to say, it’s definitely a win-win because these audio and video sessions are so much faster for me to record than writing everything out on a regular blog. (Believe it or not, I am a painfully slow writer!)

So, as long as you guys keep sending me questions I will keep sending you the mini lessons through the audio blog and vlog format.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Ok, so this week we are tackling part 2 and 3 from questions submitted by Morgan Robinson:

She asks: “How to find the right VA? … How to keep a virtual team accountable and how to build team morale?”

How to Get Your Business to Run Without You

Take it from the CEO of Jetsmarter (a.k.a the Uber of Private Jets), Sergey Petrossov: reducing time and effort wasted on inefficiency can revolutionize your whole business. He upped his company’s annual business by over seven times, simply by spotting an inefficiency. 

Common inefficiencies stem from a lack of communication, getting stuck in outdated procedures and a constant search for something new (the shiny object syndrome). Therefore you have to root out these inefficiencies so that your business can run smoothly.

This requires shrewdness, a can-do attitude and professional coaching.

Are you ready for it?

#1: Know Every Inch of Your Business

Knowing every inch of your business means observing what you are currently doing and asking yourself:

  1. Do I have a clear understanding of what’s important and what’s not?
  2. Am I simply focusing on each task or crisis as it comes along?
  3. Can these tasks be systematized?

Observe your current patterns to determine your strength. Then, apply those useful principles to the rest of your business to systematize the entire process. You can‘t really be objective about your company’s situation if you’re constantly carrying out daily tasks, as the ‘doer.’ You have to step back, zoom in and observe.

“Those who are most successful are capable of ‘higher-level thinking’ – i.e., they are able to step back and design a ‘machine’ consisting of the right people doing the right things to get what they want.”  – Ray Dalio, Founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund

This is the only way to create a system that allows you to remove yourself and let the business take care of itself. Principles by Ray Dalio is a great resource to learn more about this approach. As is Work the System by Sam Carpenter.

Once you’ve built your machine, improve it over time. Create a solid diagnosis of your goals and the problems blocking their path so that you and your team can stimulate creative solutions.

Google was famous for empowering their employees with ‘secret’ information and involving them in Q & A meetings where they could openly discuss anything with anyone. A clear and open communication flow can help you identify bottlenecks, generate better ideas, and build an effective business machine.

Would you agree? If so, you may benefit from a mastermind group that allows you to brainstorm core business challenges with fellow CEOs. Get that conversation started.

#2: Determine What Your Communication Strategy is Lacking

Don’t just say: “I can’t transfer my knowledge to my team.”

Instead, Ask yourself:

  • Which team member, and why?
  • Is it a problem of time or a lack of shared language?
  • Poor follow-through?
  • Lack of clarity?

It’s Only when you’ve identified a problematic pattern can you get to work designing a solution. Get your team in the habit of raising issues and risks that they feel are out of their control or impossible to deliver.

Communication is a tricky problem for most organizations, but it is absolutely your responsibility as a business owner to get it flowing.

So, Make your vision and your values available to your team in file that is accessible to everybody in your company. This way your employees and contractors can keep coming back to whenever they are unsure of the direction of your company. Having a set of principles accessible to everyone means you don’t have to constantly re-exert effort to explain yourself. Document everything, including common Q&As, guidelines etc. Have them organized and updated, often.

Good ideas come from all places. If you have a team that understands company goals, encourage them to ponder and speak up. Let them bring their disagreements into the open where it can be discussed and settled logically.

Are you taking advantage of communication tools like Slack, Basecamp or ProsperWorks? Use communication technology to automate internal processes while decreasing inefficiency, human error and unnecessary delays.

Bonus tip: Outlaw long and complicated emails. Communications should be razor-focused on a task, an update, or a process.

#3: Remove Bottlenecks with Technology

Leveraging technology is the best thing you can do for your business. The benefits are endless: smoother operations, greater customer experience, increased productivity and higher profits.

Jetsmarter made it easy for customers to access technology and information by letting them directly schedule their flights through an app.

As a result, agents were removed as a booking bottleneck and re-directed towards other tasks.

For better or worse, every company is now a software company. There are hundreds of applications that can be used to run business tasks.  It’s all about connecting people, processes, technology and data.

For your business to run smoothly and be highly adaptable to market needs, it needs digital integration. Use the proper tools to get you from knowledge to action in a systematic way.

How can you empower your business with technology?

Every industry has different needs.

Companies with manufacturing, transport and large investments may need to improve operations and take advantage of their infrastructures.

Other companies may want to focus on customer relationships and platforms.

Use technology to support your own goals, decreasing the amount of time and effort that you as a business owner need to focus on daily operations.

#4: Get Help So You Can Focus on the Big Picture

This means passing along some responsibilities when it becomes highly problematic or time-consuming. In other words: seeking help.

Escalation is not a failure — it’s recognition of responsibility.

Your business is meant to grow and run smoothly without your constant input. Because it becomes successful only when treated as a separate entity worthy of investment.

If time is the problem, get a virtual assistant to help you in a variety of areas, including administration, research, invoicing as well as marketing, sales and operational support.

If you have a core business challenge, consult a business coach who can “shift your mindset and perspective on your business which then allows for powerful breakthroughs in the strategic direction of your company.

Seek help.

#5: Define the Roles and Responsibilities of Your Staff

Did you know that there is a significant relationship between employee performance and clarity about roles and responsibilities?

According to one study: “Role ambiguity, which is absence of clarity for the roles, is considered to be one of the great bottlenecks for the effectiveness of the team.”

The research went on to indicate that employers who are clear about performance, evaluation and delivery improve their business tremendously. Not only are employees happier with their own performance; they uplift the entire organization.

How clear are you about your expectations?

If not, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Almost 50% of employees across different sectors lack role clarity. With start-ups, the problem stems from a fluid environment where everybody has to do everything. However, For larger organizations, it’s due to poor communication.

We’re talking about goals, priorities and boundaries.

Your Employees need to understand not just how they fit into the puzzle but how the other pieces fit in, too, and how the whole thing comes together. 

There is a freedom and passion that comes with clarity.

This includes you as the employer, CEO or business owner. The only thing you should be focusing on is making the best decisions for your business. Remove all the other noise from your head – you’d be amazed at how many different tasks there are that you can get someone else to do for you.

Seriously – here’s 84 examples!

Best Affordable Video Gear Guide to Market Your Business

The Best and Affordable Video Gear Guide isn’t that difficult to find. Below are the helpful list to help you get started to market your business.

Record with Your iPhone – Bare Bones Starter Gear:

iPhone 7 Plus

iphone

You don’t need to wait until you’re ready to buy expensive cameras or hire a professional videographer to start recording videos to market your business.

Just start recording straight from your iPhone. If you’re worried your videos might look poor in quality check out this 1-minute video I recorded from my iPhone 7 Plus.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH AN EXAMPLE VIDEO

 

Condenser Microphone for Smart Phones Smart Headset

 

condenser

 

No one wants to watch a great video if the sound is poor quality!

This is the condenser microphone I bought which hooks directly to my iPhone (with an adapter).

For under $20 it’s a no-brainer decision to ensure that people watching can hear your message clearly.

 

Apple Headphone Jack Adapter

apple

This is the adapter you’ll need to connect your condenser lapel microphone to your iPhone to record great sound for your videos.

 

 

TAluminum Tri Pod

tripod

Don’t cut corners and try to hold your iPhone to shoot your videos at arm’s length. For under $35 it’s well worth the stability and versatility to mount your smartphone onto a tripod.

I started out with a different $19 tripod, but the flimsy legs not only made it too top-heavy when I mounted my iPhone but the cheap tripod was also a struggle to get the three legs to adjust to the same length, which made for very lopsided looking videos.

So, I shelled out the extra 15 bucks and ended up buying this one instead. Having a sturdier tripod now makes me want to shoot more videos since I no longer have to fight with the old one.

 

Smartphone Adapter

smart adapterThis smartphone adapter is what mounts onto your tripod. Then you clip your iPhone right into this piece.

When I first started out with the cheapest adapter I found it became too time-consuming to switch from vertical to portrait mode.

So, then I researched and bought this one which I love because it has a 360 ball joint, so I can easily rotate my iPhone from vertical to horizontal — handy for recording video and taking pictures.

This one uses a universal mounting, so it works on pretty much any tripods, clamps, and handles.

 

Record from Your Computer – Double Duty Video Gear:

HP Pavilion All in One Computer

HP

Instead (or in addition to) recording videos from your iPhone you can also just record videos from your computer.

If you’re still using an old computer you might not have a good quality built-in camera.

This is the computer I purchased which I use to record all of the marketing training content I create for my Power Biz Academy members.

AUDIO TECHNICA MICROPHONE for COMPUTER

Even though your computer has built in speakers the sound quality when recording video is not so great.

I researched and tested out using different headsets, ear buds and other ‘cheap’ microphones. After recording with 7 other computer compatible microphones, the Audio Technica microphone is by far the best choice.

The Audio Technica is super easy to set up. You just plug the USB to your computer and using the tripod stand for secure table top use.  I like that it consistently delivers high quality sound, it doesn’t block my face as close up mics do, and I don’t have to wear a clunky looking headset.

 

Ring Light

ring light

As I reviewed the videos I shot from different indoor locations I started noticing that my lighting didn’t always look so great.

In the scheme of things, getting high-quality sound is more important than lighting. But, once you get the hang of recording videos and you’re ready to step up your lighting, this ring light is a great one to get started with.

It provides soft and flat light, halo shadow for perfect outline, and evens the lightening of the subject.

 

Add Professional Looking Back Drops Video Gear:

Green Screen Kit with Stand  

 

If you’re like most business owners, you probably have limited go-to locations to shoot your videos.  You might have a messy office, kitchen, family room, attic, closet, or car.

A green screen offers you far more variety, creativity, and credibility to give the right tone and look to each video.  You can choose the background that best matches your message. Use any image you want from beautiful beaches, city high rises, elegant conference rooms, or you just want to use your brand colors as your backdrop.

This kit that I bought comes with 2 photo lights. That way you can shoot a bunch of photos to use in your YouTube thumbnails and for your social media posts.

If you want to get softbox lights for shooting video click here: https://amzn.to/312i2pp

 

 

 

 

Box Lights

box lightAnother great video gear is when you’re watching other people’s videos you probably don’t appreciate good lighting, but you certainly will get distracted watching videos with poor lighting and dark shadows.

This is a great starter softbox lighting kit to give your videos bright, professional-looking lighting.

 

 

Triple Shoe Bracket

bracketI wanted to get better lighting on my face while still using my iPhone, so I found this triple shoe bracket that mounts on my tripod and lets me attach my smartphone adapter and the key light I  recommend below.

 

 

 

 

KEY LIGHT

lightWhen I just used 2 box lights I found often times the lighting on my face with either too dark or too bright. That’s when I found using a key light helped to focus on adjusting the light just on my face.

Add the perfect lighting setup to video recording sessions with this key light. The dimmable design lets you choose the right setting for interviews or scenes, and the glare-free diffusion offers a more balanced effect. With a flat profile and metal desk mount, this key light takes up minimal space.

 

 

 

 

Video Editing — Adobe Premiere Pro

adobe premier pro

I outsource my video editing, but if you enjoy doing your own editing (or you want your teenage kids to just do it for you) choose Adobe Premiere Pro — this is the most widely used video editing software.

(HINT: if you have high school/college-age kids they can take this course at community college and knock out their credits while learning how to edit your videos for you 🙂

Another helpful video gear guide indeed!

Keep Audience Attention with 2 Camera Shots

Canon Camcorder

canon

If you’re recording in-person interviews or you want to cut in different angles for your solo videos you’ll need to record from two cameras.

The Canon camcorder is a great choice giving you 57x advanced zoom while the super range O.I.S. (optical image stabilization) keeps the image steady at a longer focal length.

HD videos are recorded to separately available SD cards in the MP4 format for easy playback on most devices. the MMP4 formats are highly compatible with video hosting services and social media websites without format conversion.

Reti Cam Table Top Trip Pod

reticamIf you’re only planning on recording videos from your desk you can pick up this simple, small tabletop tripod.

It has the standard mount that will work for all the other accessories and adapters mentioned above.

 

 

San Disk

sandisk

When you’re recording from a video camcorder you will likely max out your storage space on the camera, so you’ll need to transfer your videos onto a scan disk.

So definitely, this is another cool video gear guide for keep!

 

 

Nice to Have Extras Video Gear

Gimbal Stabilizer 3-Axis – Handheld iPhone Stabilizer

gimbal

If you want to record action shots, whether you’re walking, running, biking, and even skiing, you’ll want to grab the Gimbal handheld stabilizer.

This works with iPhone Xs Max Xr X 8 Plus 7 6 SE or Gimbal for Samsung S9/Note, for Sony, LG, Google Pixel 3 XL, Huawei P20, ZTE, Mi, and more Android Smartphones.

You can also download their 2019 Newest ‘Hohem Gimbal’ App on your Android or iOS Phones for your gimbal connectivity with Bluetooth. The parameter setting and calibration will help you master the gimbal much better.

 

 

 

Sennheiser Smart Headset

headset

If you prefer using earbuds over the tabletop computer microphone I’d recommend getting the Sennheiser Smart Headset.

When I tried using cheap $20-$40 earbuds I found they were inconsistent. Sometimes I’d get on a video interview and the other person couldn’t hear me. It just wasn’t worth the headache and stress of tech issues cheap earbuds can create.

The Sennheiser is designed for Apple iOS devices. It delivers Sennheiser’s signature sound and crystal-clear call quality. A situational awareness function allows switching between Transparent Hearing and Active Noise Cancellation, to amplify or silence sound around you. Microphones capture sound like your ears do when recording video

Fovitec – 1x Photography & Video 20″x28″ Softbox Continuous Lighting Kit w/ 2500W Equivalent Total Output – [Includes Boom, Stands, Softboxes, Bag, 11x 45W Bulbs]

povitec

When you’re watching other people’s videos you probably don’t appreciate good lighting, but you certainly will get distracted watching videos with poor lighting and dark shadows.

This is a great starter softbox lighting kit to give your videos bright, professional-looking lighting.

I like the 3 light set because you can use the 3rd light to backlight you. I love watching videos where the person speaking looks like they have a halo around them.

 

How to Build Your Small Business Dream Team

You need a quality business dream team behind you if you want to find success in this day and age. There’s no such thing as a one-man show. If your team of small business employees isn’t doing what you want to them to do, it’s easy to get frustrated. Small business is big business. Small businesses with less than 100 workers account for over 98% of all small businesses, and that means your team matters more than ever.

Small business is big business. Small businesses with less than 100 workers account for over 98% of all small businesses Click To Tweet

When your team doesn’t do what you want, you don’t have a team problem. As much as it hurts to admit, you likely have a leadership problem. Before you blame yourself, take some time to reassess the situation. Learning how to be a great leader is all part of mastering how to start a business. All hope is not lost. There are many things you can do to get your small business team back on track for success.

1. Hire the Right Employees

If you’re noticing a trend in dissatisfaction amongst your current employees, you might not be hiring the right people to begin with. It’s worth being choosy with your team members in this era. When you hire the wrong people for the job, they don’t enjoy the work they do, and you won’t be impressed with their results.

How to Build Your Small Business Dream Team

Remember that the most experienced employee might not be the best fit. You’ll need to weigh things like company culture, expectations, and experience level when making a decision about who to hire. In addition, make sure you’re presenting your company and the role accurately. The internet job platforms are full of poorly described positions which will only lead to more confusion.

2. Improve Employee Happiness

How are your employees responding to their daily work environment? Is it full of stress, confusion, and dissatisfaction? If so, you need to reevaluate employee happiness. While nobody should expect to have a fun, exciting day at work (at least, not all of the time), that doesn’t mean it can’t be a satisfying, stress-free place to be.

There are new ways to improve employee happiness that don’t cost you a thing. The first is simply delegating work effectively. When employees feel they’re reasonably able to handle their daily tasks, they perform better. We’ve all dealt with the stress of not being able to meet deadlines and requirements.

Another way is to offer flexible work options. Telecommuting alone shows 82% lower stress levels. Thanks to modern technology, remote work and flexible hours are easier than ever, and you don’t have to compromise on the quality of work. Learn more about modern employee scheduling tools here.

3. Maximize Employee Productivity

Finally, one reason your business dream team might not be doing what you want them to do is because they’re spending too much time on inefficient tasks. So many of our workplace practices today can be automated thanks to new technology. Yet, so many small businesses, in particular, are still holding onto the older ways of doing things. The older way tends to take longer, be inefficient, and wastes valuable time.

How to Build Your Small Business Dream Team

Chances are your employees likely know more about these inefficient tasks than you, and they should be your first line of defense for solving these problems. The employees time is valuable. How much of it is going to waste doing things that could be automated or skipped altogether?

Conduct regular team meetings to discover if there are any areas you could invest in automation, artificial intelligence, or modern solutions. The cost of implementing these programs likely will be more than worth it in the long run.

When your team doesn’t do what you want, you don’t have a team problem. As much as it hurts to admit, you likely have a leadership problem Click To Tweet

4. Run a Better Business

Your business needs strong leadership that pays attention to your employee’s mindset and feelings. These tips above help you put your small business dream team first so you can get more done together. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-do stress of being a small business leader, so taking the time to notice where your employees need support is key.

Even just taking the initial steps to bridge these gaps in communication will go a long way to repairing employee morale. Your employees want to do their best. Make sure they’re in a position for finding the most success.

PROSPECTING TOOL REVIEW: Boomerang — Never Forget to Follow Up with Prospects Again

The Fortune is in the Follow Up

When it comes to business development we know we should follow up with prospects multiple  times. But, 

have you ever been guilty of sending out emails to a bunch of potential prospects and then forget to follow up on them? Click To Tweet

Yup! I used to forget too.

Sure, I have CRM system and other tools that use automations, but there’s a lot of times when it is quicker to just to fire off a bunch of emails straight from your gmail account … but then .. life gets in the way of all our good intentions, right?

That’s why I decided to add Boomerang to my follow up toolbox.

What is Boomerang?

This is not the Boomerang App used on Instagram and Facebook that takes videos and makes it repeat itself from start to end in seconds. Yep, that app has the same name as this one but just to clarify. This isn’t that app we are going to talk about.

Boomerang for gmail and outlook is an app that allows you to write an email and automatically send it later on the perfect time you scheduled it. Plus, it has a feature that will also notify you if you don’t get a reply on the email you sent and/or if the person you sent it to did not even open the email.

Having Boomerang is like having your very own executive assistant who alerts you on who to follow up on your email prospecting efforts.

Some also use Boomerang to email themselves reminders for next day, or next week, etc. It allows you to organize your inbox to prevent email overload. It is a useful and a simple tool to use that can be installed on IOS and Android smartphones too.

Boomerang is a Google Chrome browser extension when you’re emailing from your laptop or desktop.

 

 

Why Should You Use it in Your Prospecting

This can easily help you in prospecting clients because it has the capability to track responses. Unopened, unreplied emails will then boomerang back to you based on the setting you had when you sent the email.

 

 

You have the ability to set the date when it will be boomerang back at you and to varied situations stated below:

  • If not opened
  • If not clicked
  • If no reply
  • Regardless

You can identify who to follow up in regards to your proposal let’s say.

 

 

How to Download and Use Boomerang for Business

Here is how to download and install it as a browser extension.

  1. Go to Boomeranggmail.com and click INSTALL

 

 

       2. A pop up will come up and click add extension. Let it run and that’s it.
