R. Shawn McBride recently spoke about business growth and what it means to you.
Hey folks, Shawn here with you. I’m talking about one of the realities of a growing business and a changing business. Your business is going to evolve and if you’re going to grow your role’s going to change.
Think about a person like Bill Gates. When he started Microsoft, his job was to get out there and sell the software, get people to buy it, and deliver. He was doing all the functions across the board and then one day the business grew and it continued to grow and eventually, he was a CEO and he was doing very high-level leadership activities, giving presentations about strategic correction, managing teams, setting big projects. Imagine how much different Bill Gate’s day looked at the beginning of his start of Microsoft versus when he stepped down to do charitable activities. The world changed a lot in that time and his role changed a lot. The same is going to happen to you as your business evolves.
You’re going to have changing time allocations. It’s certainly something we’re dealing with here at McBride for Business. As we’re growing and as the business is changing the role of my time is getting different. How I spend my day changes almost month to month. Different priorities come along. Different allocations of time. The same is going to happen to you. I want you to be realistic about this and I want you to be looking ahead to the fact that the way things are today is not the way they’re going to be tomorrow.
We need to have plans in place, grow our teams to help support the functions we used to have, bring new people in to take over those responsibilities and allow ourselves to grow to be more focused on the activities we will be focused on in the future. Time allocations are going to change. What you do every day is going to be different and you need to be realistic about building your plans.
