Founding member of The Mastermind, Carissa Hill, is recognised as an international speaker and business coach, and recently has been published in the highly regarded business publication, Forbes.
In the publication, Ms. Hill shares her experience as a business leader where she outlines how businesses can operate most effectively by being selective in the tasks they surrender to employees or outsourcing, and the tasks they should maintain direct control over.
Hill is very clear on three tasks that should remain with the responsibility of the business owner:
1. Leadership: Having these skills are critical to a business growing, managing employees and providing direction.
2. Your Signature Offer: Particularly for businesses built on a skill or service that is exclusive to the business owners’ personality, Hill encourages that the business owner should maintain this part of the role. As a business coach, Ms. Hill outsources a handful of functions in her own business, but her one-on-one client sessions cannot be delegated.
3. Financial Oversight: Knowing the financial position the business is in is something that the business owner should always be aware of. Hill states, “It’s important for business owners to have oversight and look at the big picture so they know what’s working and what’s not. This enables you to make adjustments before things go too far in the wrong direction.”
While many businesses rely on employees and outsourcing, there are particular aspects of the business that the business owner should always be in control of. In Ms. Hill’s recently published book, “I Like Money: The Secrets to Actually Making Money with Facebook”, she continues to share how she firstly used Facebook to grow her business and then the processors she has set up to keep the business running without having to manually do the work.
