Myth vs. Reality: What you actually need for Success

“Ugh, I should totally know this.”

We’ve all thought or said this phrase at some time or another, whether it was at the start of a new job, career transition, or launching a new business. 

We’ve all had those moments of self-doubt, kicking ourselves for not knowing the answer. But should you, really?

The truth is, you don’t know what you don’t know. That’s why experts exist – to help us do the things that they’re really good at doing… You know,  the things you either:

  • Don’t know how to do. 
  • Don’t want to do.
  • Don’t care to do.
  • Don’t want to screw up.

I call this group of experts your POWER Team and every good, solid POWER team should at least include the following people: 

  1. CPA
  2. Bookkeeper 
  3. Money Systems Consultant
  4. Lawyer
  5. Coach
  6. Mentor
  7. Therapist
  8. Support Staff & Contractors (aka the ones who make the world go ‘round!)

Remember, it’s OK to not know what you don’t know.

After all, you didn’t go to law school. You didn’t get a degree in accounting. You don’t need to know how to be a bookkeeper in order to trust somebody to do data entry for you. You can’t know something if you’ve never been exposed to it. 

Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you don’t know something. Sure, it’s OK to try to do it for yourself, but recognize when it’s better to pay someone else to do it. 

Your time is valuable. Your talent is valuable. Your energy is valuable, and I want you to choose the right way to spend all of that. Once you do that, trust me, the money will come.

Extra Credit

As you go about your day, think about these questions:

  1. Who is currently on my POWER Team?  
  2. What types of people or roles are missing from my POWER Team? 
  3. Who do I need to remove from my POWER Team?
  4. How can I strengthen my POWER Team?
