EP452: Don Costa - Is Your Business Lean, or Just Fat and Bloated? (Time to Jump in the "Business Gym")
The Flip Empire Show
Don Costa was managing a 16 person team before COVID hit. He's now running his team incredibly lean and he’s learned a couple of things along the way. He shares how to build a strong business foundation, what to do when you have a real winner on your team to keep them engaged, and so much more on this week’s episode! KEY TAKEAWAYS: Since COVID, Don has chosen to downsize his team (and get lean!) Don asked himself, how can he and his team make more money than what they’re already doing. It makes no difference what your gross rev is when your margins are tiny. When you’re in growth mode, how much money are you really keeping? What does it mean to have a strong business foundation? If you have a buy box, stick to it! Don’t try to put a square peg through a round hole. How did Don’s business get so bloated? Business is meant to serve you and others. This is why you must have a plan. Don knows that if he is bored, he is dangerous. He will always be working and doesn’t plan on ever retiring. What is Don doing to get more business through his door with less staff? Do not stop following up until the seller tells you to kick rocks. The best acquisition managers have a very small life span. You get a good 12-24 months before they move on. You have to hold your team accountable and sometimes that means listening to sales calls. By hiring more people, you can actually end up starving your top-player out. And guess what happens when you starve a winner? How is Don keeping his team sharp and up-to-date? If you don’t have a good disposition’s person in your corner, you’re doing all of this wrong. If you’re not training your team in marketing and sales, you’re doing yourself a disservice as well. Prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.
