Small Business is a Team Sport

We’re back on the ball diamonds! Between our two sons schedules, I can be found at some surrounding baseball diamond almost every night of the week.

One of the things about baseball is that it takes a team to win. There can be individual star pitchers, catchers, hitters … but without everyone applying their personal best – through their own desire, ambition and skill – its tough to win. Small business is the same! As an owner, you are a star of your business. But without recruiting a team of players, it’s tough or impossible to win.

I love when the boys rally. Once they’re ON game, it’s like they are unbeatable. The confidence becomes contagious and they build on the momentum of the team’s belief. They get what they expect and dominate the game.

As a small business owner, you also need a team to create a rally. Having personal confidence is one thing – but once you experience the power of a team’s confidence, it’s unstoppable.

Reflect on the successful entrepreneurs and small business owners you know. Chances are there is a committed and confident team of people surrounding them. Together they create the juice to win.

It’s exponential. You squared.
