There’s no such thing as a one-man business. It’s a one-man job.

This was something that I discovered over 35 years ago when I first went freelance. If I was going to in business, I would need a team, because if I didn’t have a team, I wouldn’t have a business, I would merely have a job – several jobs in fact.

Now, just having a job is fine, there is no problem with that at all. Lots of people do it and they are just as worthy as people who run businesses.

But, if you have a strong vision and an important message that you want to take to the world, then you won’t have the skills to do so alone. No one person has all of the required skills (or the time) to do all that is required. I know, I’ve tried it and I’ve met lots of other people who I’ve mentored over the years who have tried it. Building your dream team is a vitally empowering step in taking your vision to the world.

This is why I have this as Step 3 in my Seven Step Process for building a winning, conscious enterprise. Step 1 was all about Creating Your Vision. Step 2 was Harnessing the Power of Simplicity. Step 3 is the way we are able to grow and deliver our vision.

Seven Step Process for building a winning conscious business.

The diagram above shows all the steps in my Seven Step Process for building a WINNING Conscious business.

Turning a Job Into a Business

It is by building a team that you turn a job into a business. But jut how do you go about building your dream team? It actually all started with Step 1 when you created your Vision because when you create a Vision and hold it with passionate energy, you just don’t hold it and keep it to yourself. You have got to share that Vision. You could share it with friends, friends you trust. You can’t share it with all friends because many won’t understand, so share it with friends you trust. You can share it with positive people on Social Media and, when you start putting that positive energy out about your Vision, you will begin to attract people who would want to know more, and who, if you were to start a business, would like to work with you.

As I said, you started the ball rolling for building your dream team already with Step 1. Then comes Step 2, which is all about Harnessing the Power of Simplicity, which means removing complexity. This, again, is a vital step in building your dream team, because having sent out your Vision with energy, and having attracted people with that energy, if they then come and look at the way you do things, and everything is messy, complex, higgledy-piggledy they won’t want to work with you. A lot of people make the mistake to think that clever people can cope with complexity. The fact is clever people know that complexity is wrong, They know that the cleverest way to do something is the simplest way.

When you remove complexity, and people do come along and they can see how simply and elegantly things are done, that it’s aligned with your Vision, they will more than ever want to work with you.

Now, we come to Step 3 which is really all about asking yourself questions. The first question is, can you let go? So, you have your business, you created it, can you let go? A universal problem is that when we have created a business, we see it as our baby, and we want to make sure it is properly nurtured and gets off to a good start. The problem arises when we want to go on ‘parenting’ our business. We then become like parents who want to parent their child all the time, way past when it is healthy do so. The child will never grow and will never be able to stand on it own as a healthy adult.

You’ve got to stop and let your ‘child’ grow and release it. Your business has to become bigger than you.

You have to let go. Then, you need to ask yourself, what can you let go of? What are you going to let go of first? Who should you hire first?

Then, should you have a team that’s on the ground, or on the web? Now, you notice I don’t refer to a ‘virtual team’ because there’s no such thing as a virtual team in my thinking. All of the members of your team are real people. They’re not virtual, they’re real.

I feel that this language is important because it puts out a different energy. If you treat each member of your team as a real person in a real team, whether they’re just on the ground or on the web, it creates a whole new, much more energetic, relationship between them and you.

Working with John has been one of the best business decisions I have made.

I have been working with John for almost 12 months now and my business has grown much quicker than it ever would have without his help.

John has kept me accountable, helped me stay on track with my goals and discover and clarify my vision; as well as providing valuable guidance.

In addition, John really cares and it is great working with someone who shares my values.

I would highly recommend John to any business owner looking to take their business to the next level or just wanting to reach their goals faster.

Working with John Owens International (JOI) has been immensely beneficial to our business.

Using the JOI Board Advisory service has helped our Board and senior executive team to gain significant new insights into innovative strategies and structures that have presented new and profitable business opportunities both domestically and internationally.

Using JOI as mentors to our divisional managers has enabled these managers to significantly grow in their roles, resulting in higher performance for their division both organisationally and commercially.

I have no reservations in recommending JOI to any organisation that wants to have the thinking, systems and structures to take itself to the next level.

Working with John as a coach and mentor has been transformational.

John has a gift for enabling people to view challenging situations, both business and personal, from completely new perspectives that remove blockages and provide a way forward to simple, elegant solutions.

John is committed to achieving the very best for his clients, but they have to be prepared to work for it. Do not work with John unless you are prepared to be stretched and challenged. However, if you are prepared, the results will be amazing.

I have no reservations in recommending John to anyone who wants to achieve real transformation both in their personal and professional lives.

John’s reputation for bringing rapid change through the power of simplicity to businesses is well deserved.

I first met John when he did consultancy for a business of which I was a director and major shareholder. His techniques enabled John to do the work quickly and get right to the core of our challenges. His keen analysis enabled him to provide the board and executive with some great insights and outstanding recommendations.

His work, both as an enterprise consultant work and a personal mentor, is first class.

John SandfordDirector, Trustee and Advisor

Here exists a brilliant and powerful mind in business. John Owens skills as a business consultant scream one word for every business: transformation.

Since having John on my of directors for my brand – Emily Gowor, Word Artist – I have resolved challenges in the flow of daily and monthly business, devised a company structure that will be put into place in the new year, and brought a significant and clear distinction to the role that I ought and ought not to be playing in my own company.

Without the clarity that John bring to a business, you will not know where you stand within your own enterprise – and your enterprise may very become the owner of you instead of the other around.

The opportunity to have John consult for your business – whether your are an individual with a growing personal brand, a small enterprise or a large corporation (and no matter where you are globally) – is priceless. It will double your revenue at the very least, and bring forward with crystal the most optimal and long-term profitable structure for your business to follow.

Build your success the right way. Take advice form John Owens – he is a genius in business, and will care about your enterprise;s success as much, and in moments, even more fiercely than you do. It’s his commitment every single day to stand for people’s financial and vocational prosperity. Thank you John.
