The 3 People You Need to Connect With to Grow Your Business

You know the saying, “It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know”. You really can’t take for granted what meeting the right people can do for the growth of your business. But sometimes all that networking can really be exhausting!

Inside the Idea Collective we started thinking of a different way that you could act today to start networking. The result? We came up with an exercise that you could start right away to help you move further in your business.


Also on this episode:

  • Hiring / Building a Team – Hiring Employee #1 is incredibly intimidating, but thankfully we have Talmar Anderson, CEO and founder of Boss Actions, LLC here to discuss how you know it’s time to pull the trigger on hiring your first employee. In addition to knowing when the right time is, Talmar is also sharing the steps to take when hiring your first employee. Maybe you don’t think you have the money, but with the right knowledge you’ll feel more confident in your decision to expand your team.
  • Words / Small Business Dreams – Do you say ‘niche’ or ‘neesh’? Words can be fun, can’t they!? There’s one word I can’t stop thinking about that captures what the small business community is all about. It’s probably not what you’re thinking, but after hearing it, you’ll probably see yourself in a whole different way.
