My top 5 business lessons

From employee to founder

Lesson 1

Build a team & learn how to delegate

One of the most important lessons I have learned throughout my career is that I can't do everything on my own. I need help. I need others - and not just their time, but their gifts, skills, and creativity. The most difficult part of this process is trust.

Start by building trust in yourself and getting clear on your vision. Learn how to find and hire talent, establish clear KPIs and try out different ways to manage projects and teams. If this is not you, you can be the visionary who works alongside a manager that can provide a solid structure for your team to thrive.

Lesson 2

Know your numbers

You don't know your business if you don't know your numbers. Can I bold that? Sometimes our vision is big and our notion of time and resources becomes inaccurate. When it comes to running your business, don't guess and don't operate solely from projections.
Define how your team's time and projects are impacting costs and revenue. Look at your numbers every day, every week, every month. Or have someone who does (and who is clear on performance benchmarks) and that can report to you periodically.

Lesson 3

Value proposition wins

In the digital world, the power of branding, marketing, and value proposition are the catalysts for connection and relationships with your customers. Your branding is - besides your logo and colors - your message, your why, the values that you inspire in this world. Your marketing is the communication that creates a relationship between your business and your customers.
Value proposition is presenting to your customer a clear picture of how your products or services are going to impact their lives, solving their problem or need. Presenting the value rather than the features or benefits of what you are selling. It is a combination of these 3 elements that create magic. Are you focused on transactions, rather than relationships?

Lesson 4

Take calculated risks

Something that I learned as a producer, is to identify the true risks I am taking when I am pursuing an opportunity. If you are considering taking a risk, project the cost and lay it next to the long-term benefit (quantitative and qualitative). Generate a view of the worst-case scenario and the best-case scenario.
Understand that when taking risks, there may be unforeseen elements that you were not able to predict, and were not able to prepare for. Also, in business and in life, things take longer and cost more than what you may anticipate. Learn how to course-correct immediately on the spot, trusting the market's feedback, the numbers and your intuition

The process of building businesses is an intense journey. Highs and lows will come. My view on it - through thin and thick do your best to have fun. Fun inspires creativity, creates forward energy, and fosters gratitude for yourself and your team. Don't lose the human element of connection, both your customers and your teams are human beings who are searching for love, connection, purpose, and peace.
Bottom line:

Lesson 5

Have fun & go big!
