Building Business - Part Art, Part Strategy
Building a successful business could be summarized as multiple different business functions coming together and working as efficiently and effectively to generate revenue from a product or service. It sounds simple, but the complexities to overcome as a business owner in the start-up phase are endless.
Everything from hiring people, leading people, managing cash flow, managing the business, working on the company, and the list goes on. However, Weston Nicholas's success story as an arborist didn't start out as smooth as you'd think. Like many, he's learned from his experiences and mistakes to build better systems and fill his team gaps as his company continues to grow.
Admittedly, he doesn't have it all figured out, but throughout this episode of Landscape Disruptors with Stanley Genadek, the Dirt Monkey. They discuss everything related to finding a trustworthy partner, not letting your ego get in the way, being singularly focused, hiring slow, managing cash flow, and so much more.
