How to Make Your Time Worth $10,000 an Hour, Part 2

Today’s episode is the follow-up to last week’s episode on how to make your time worth $10,000 an hour. Today we shift from you, the business owner, to your team members and how you can support them in making their time more valuable to the team. Dr. Sabrina reveals how to support your A-player team members in delegating effectively so they invest their time in higher-value activities to support the business.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production.

Show Highlights:

  • The biggest mistakes we make in getting our team to work from their highest-value activities:
    • Acting as if we are fully productive for 8 hours each day–and holding our team to that expectation (I can be effective with a 25-hour/workweek because of time-blocking techniques!)
    • Context switching, because it decreases productivity and leads to short attention spans, wasted time, and burnout.
    • Spending too much time doing work outside our strengths (The Peoplemap Assessment {Coupon code “beagift” saves you $50!} and Clifton Strengths are tools we use to identify team members’ strengths.)
  • Our Leadership Bootcamp is a six-week course for your A-players to learn to work from their strengths, increase engagement and productivity, and learn the sweet spot of your business. The next session begins on April 4.
  • You must delegate so that your business is not dependent upon you! Delegating allows entry-level roles to take on a higher level of responsibility.
  • Time audits (once per quarter) help ensure efficiency in your payroll, likely your biggest source of revenue drain.
  • Your 4 week vacation is possible! It’s a beautiful thing that makes your business stronger! Take the pledge today!
  • Dr. Sabrina’s cautions about vacation policies for your team members
  • A success story from Leadership Bootcamp
  • Take the Better Business Better Life Assessment; it will assess your level of burnout and the strength of key systems in your business and customize your list of $10,000 an hour activities.

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
