The second season of the popular business podcast, “Un-Disruptive”, is in full swing. This season is all about how to build a business on an unexpected moment, the unexpected being the most likely. The episode is in my opinion one of the more informative ones on the podcast. We dive into the topic of the unexpected as well as the idea of having an “Un-Disruptive” podcast.
Most of the episode focuses on having the right people on board, which will help grow your business. A lot of the podcast is about how we can do this through having a business plan, having a team, and having a board of directors.
The Un-Disruptive podcast is about having a business plan, a board of directors, and a team, and that’s it. We don’t talk about how to have the perfect team, or how to find the right people, or how to pay your taxes, or anything about the business side of things. We do talk about the business side of things, but it’s very much about having the right people on board.
I think all of our business plan posts have made it clear that we are not the experts on all of the business issues. We have a staff of three of us that do the podcast, we have our business plan posts, and we do our business plan board meetings. That’s it.
It’s not enough that you have a team. You need to know the right people. And this is part of the reason why we decided to start a podcast. We are not, not right now, the experts in business. We do have the right people, but they are not the experts on all of the issues that affect business. We have a staff of three of us who have a ton of experience in all aspects of business and do a ton of business planning.
We have staff who have experience in the areas that you don’t think they have experience in (and I’m sure we’ve discussed this in this podcast). For example, we have business plan writers who have worked in some of the top 500 companies on the planet, and we have business plan coaches who have helped many businesses take their business plan to the next level and become successful. However, our business plan members are not experts in all the business issue areas that you may have.
You would think that if you wanted to start and grow a business, you would hire someone to do that for you. You would think that as a business owner you would have someone who could create and implement a business plan for your company. We don’t. We have only a few people who can actually create a business plan from scratch to work with you.
I think this might be why some businesses don’t work out. They hire people to do the important work, but then they don’t really do it their way. They hire people that specialize in one area, but then they don’t make things really, really, really work in that area. What I mean by that is they hire someone who is not the best in that specific area, but is capable of making things work.
In our case, we are not hiring “people who do the important work” to work on our business. We are hiring people who know how to do their jobs. We are not looking for someone who is the best accountant or lawyer, but we are looking for someone who knows how to manage an accounting system and do it well.
The point is that there is a lot of “business” going on right now. We are just not in the business of being one of those people. We are in the business of doing something that is a little bit different. And that something is making a lot of money that doesn’t show on the annual financial statements. So, there is that possibility.
