I’m growing my business and I’d love to find someone who’s willing to be “in the trenches” growing it with me for approximately 5 hours a week (with potential for more in the future)


You’re someone who enjoys digging into new projects with an eye to creating an organized project plan, figuring out what’s crucial, what’s a “nice to have” and helping us map out the path there together. I’m a bit of a reluctant project planner who sees the value in creating a plan of attack, so I appreciate your patience with my resistance to creating plans, and your enthusiasm for measuring twice and cutting once, as well as blocking off the time to make creating plans a reality. I’m so grateful that you’re willing to manage the details and make them more manageable for me.


You’re someone who thrives on being helpful. You see a need and immediately volunteer  creative solutions, making things easier and more streamlined, offering what you can do, or even what you’d be willing to try to take on with some more guidance – I’m all in favor of your learning and us growing together. You’re also willing to take on some projects that I need to outsource and truly own them.


Since I often design workshops or leadership development trainings, you are willing to help me think through the flow of activities, how the day will go, and what details need to be taken care of/planned for ahead of time to organize the day. And you’re just as willing to communicate with the client about the set-up and logistics of the day: you’re willing to pitch in and make each engagement a success. Your communication, in person, over the phone or email, is professional, concise and eloquent. You understand that everything we do leaves an impression (positively or negatively) on the client, and continually strive for excellence.


I appreciate that you can “tell it to me straight” and I can give you feedback as well. Sometimes you honestly tell me I’m taking on too much, reminding me that it’s not sustainable and there’s not enough time to do the work and live a life of balance and fun with my family. I listen to you. When things don’t work out, I can share my disappointment with the process and/or deliverable with you and you can hear constructive criticism without getting offended. You take it in stride and together we often think up new ways to do things that are even better, more efficient and have less room for error. We can make things better together.


I appreciate your sense of humor too. You don’t take yourself too seriously so I don’t have to either. I’m not perfect, you’re not perfect. But let’s at least laugh together sometimes about it. And while we all love to get things off our desks and mark them “done,” I can count on you to proof it really well so we’re on top of the things we can control.


Thanks for having some flexibility in your schedule. I can guarantee you a certain number of hours per week/month if that’s necessary but I don’t always know on what day they’ll come. I don’t expect you to be on call 24/7 but I’d love if you could be upfront about your availability, busy times and help me to plan in advance around them.


Oh and of course, you’re interested in leadership development, how we work with people to be the flexible and wise leaders we need now and in the future. I believe it helps the world to grow with more developed leaders. You believe that too. Which means you also spend time on your own personal development growth as well.
