Sailing and Staff training.
Everybody likes the idea of the sitting on their boat with the wind in their hair and a cold margarita in their hand.
And with just a little work you can learn the basics of sailing and you can putt around the harbor and have a pretty good time.
And everybody likes the idea of a highly trained staff. (That’s how you get the boat with the margarita…)
And with a little work you can learn the basic’s of staff training and develop some staff.
But…if your want to sail around the world, or want to build a million dollar school, it’s a not a little work.
It’s a lot of work. A hell of a lot of work.
People get in BIG trouble when they don’t do the work and over-reach their skills: either trying to sail around the without the skills or grow their school (or schools) beyond their ability to manage staff.
But the rewards of learning to be an expert sailor or running a high profit million dollar school are huge.
You just need to ask yourself: Do I want to putt around the harbor with the rest of’em or really learn how to sail and go for it?
Do I want to spend a couple hours a month training my staff, or do I want to put in the time to build a triple A+ staff (Greg Horton’s staff does training 100+ hours a year..his 7 schools are at about 3 million a year)
The point: You’re only going as far as your staff (or sailing skills) will take you, spend the time and do it right.
Now, where’s my margarita, I got a boat to catch…
