Who Is On Your Team?

Reading time: minute(s)

My 16 year old son is a perfect example of a team player. He is always encouraging his teammates to “keep going” and continuously recognizes them for their efforts. Hockey and football coaches alike have shared the same types of comments about Kevin – “one of the most respected players on the team”, “great sportsmanlike conduct”. As members of my own team, my kids teach me new lessons each and every day (wait, aren’t they supposed to be learning from me?!).

Most who know me, know that, like my kids, I am a team player. With all of the management positions I have held and the businesses that I have built over the years I’ve found that they have one critical thing in common – Team Building! Any business coach will tell you that success in business begins with the relationships that you build over time. There’s just no way around it, you will have to network! No one person can do it all themselves. And, why bother trying? It so much more fun to get others involved, work together collectively for the common goal, and achieve your goals – whether they are winning games or creating wealth.

I owe much of my success in both business and personal life to my own teammates over the years. From my teammates in real estate investments (sales rep, mortgage broker, lawyer, home inspector, banker, real estate training expert and accountant) to my partners in direct selling, I’ve learned that surrounding yourself with an excellent group of trusted and savvy professionals is the key to success. As Zig Ziglar, one of my favorite mentors, says, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.”

Who are your important team members? How did you find them and what processes did you follow to develop your team? I love hearing new ideas!

If you know of people who are dynamite leaders in team and relationship building or just know how to have fun connecting people, my EVOLV team is ready to meet them. Let’s keep evolving the world!
