In This Episode
Spirited entrepreneurs often launch their businesses as solo operations as they try to execute a swift vision. Yet eventually, these professionals must structure their companies to scale or risk losing money. How can you reinvent your business with experienced talent, core values, and a robust company culture?
With an entrepreneurial urge to satisfy, Leon Leinbach founded a construction company after overseeing a business as a foreman. After managing the entire operation singlehandedly, Leon realized he had to delegate responsibilities. However, without the knowledge or resources to train qualified employees, his company culture became a toxic environment, and he began losing revenue. Faced with a heavy decision to either sell his family’s farm or the business, Leon moved into a small property and restructured his company. When restoring your business, establishing core values and holding culture meetings to uphold those values allows you to attract and retain compatible talent for a prosperous company.
