Learn how to build a business and a life!
What, you may ask, is a business sherpa? The answer is Tristan Wright, a Melbourne-based leadership coach and my On The Brink podcast guest this week. During our interview, Tristan talks about how he helps businesses grow, and also how he grew his own business from a start-up in his kitchen, literally, into a global operation. Quite a feat! You'll find that Tristan is very articulate about the challenges all start-ups face and how to stay focused on building from the customer backwards, one step at a time, with the scalability needed to achieve 7-figure results.
Growing your business while reducing your workload and keeping focused and accountable
Regardless of where you are in your business growth, Tristan can help you get going and get growing. While building his own business, he acquired first-hand experience in everything from product design and procurement to team management, financial reporting, vendor negotiations and social-media marketing, which he shares with those he coaches.
With a background in leadership coaching and applied business, Tristan describes how in the beginning, he "let the allure of success (and fear of failure) consume every waking minute, and learned the hard lessons seldom taught by anyone." Now he helps emerging entrepreneurs skip the long path and instead, get on the road to success quickly .
In our interview, we dig into how outsourced support can help you:
SIMPLIFY Your Workload: By putting in place the right systems and staff, you can reclaim your free time and go on vacations, see your family and build a life outside the workplace.
BUILD Your Confidence: As a manager, leader, or both, 1:1 coaching sessions can help you push past obstacles and achieve real success.
GROW Your Profits: Make sure you do this in a smart and sustainable way that doesn’t push you to the brink of burnout.
