Building a Great Team
If you want to succeed in business at a high level, then above all else, you have to surround yourself with people who see the value in what you do and want to share in your success. As cliche as it sounds, eagles soar together. How can you expect to achieve great heights if those around you don't want to strive for the same? If someone isn't the best at what they do, or they aren't looking to be the best in their field, then they aren't a good fit.
Trying to shoulder the load all on your own is too much; relying on team members is the key to finding balance, encouragement, and drive. That's why choosing the right individuals is so important. My job and my goal every day is to find those people who are amazing and to provide as much value to them as possible so that they are inspired to provide that value back.
It doesn't happen overnight, though. It takes time, dedication, and a commitment to never settling for anyone but the best. Building a great team isn't easy, but it's essential if you want to excel at the top of your game.
