If your goal is to grow out of a one person operation, you have to be conscious that even the best business owner can only achieve so much. If you know your abilities, you have to be aware of your limitations, and the areas where you need a team to ensure your success.
After recognizing the areas where you lack expertise, or where you want to expand, you have to be able to recognize the individuals that will form part of a team that will lead your company to the next level.
A key part of this transition is to find the right people, and not only make them want to join you, but also who are willing to be led by you and are motivated by you. Any person that becomes part of your team has to integrate to what you want to achieve, and either follow your guide, or help you define how to reach the goals you have set for the company. And you, as the owner and leader, have to be able to motivate, and be motivated by them. They have to bring out the best in you, and you have to bring out the best in them.
There are a lot of factors involved in getting a start-up operating, or building and managing a successful company. And one of the most important factors will be the people you surround yourself with.
That alone, can determine the success or failure of your company. And even though there is no perfect formula, this course i designed to provide you with some tips that can guide you in the hiring process so you can find the best possible team to help you achieve your goals.
SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR AND CONSULTING FOR OVER 10 YEARS IN LATIN AMERICA AND THE US.

SALES AND MARKETING:Market Development, Client Management, Marketing Campaigns (Local and Regional), Pipeline – Sales – Return on Investment
For the last 10 years I have been working with companies that range from multi national to small businesses owned and operated by individuals or small groups of people.
Companies i have worked with are in fields like: Construction - Logistics - Computer and Software Services - Construction Projects - Restaurants - Hardware Stores - Retail Stores - Beverage Industry - Veterinary Hospital Services.
I have had the privilege of learning from great leaders and not so good leaders (Yes you learn as much from a good one as from a bad one), having worked with and for amazing companies and companies that have struggled to succeed.
Because of that, i have been blessed with the chance to help others, execute ideas, create and develop projects and I have been able to fortunately learn from other entrepreneurs, executives and great people who came to this world to make a difference. Just like you.
I have worked for others, helping them build and achieve their dreams, until i got to the point where I decided i would no longer work for anyone else, and pursue my own ideas and dreams. I have started my own companies, with partners, by myself, even purchased one. And having been fortunate enough to have failed in some and succeeded in others, I have decided to share my knowledge and experience. With small business owners who may be struggling, or simply wanting to explore options to improve; as well as other brilliant entrepreneurs that are developing their own ideas and projects to start their small business.
