SNM180: Building a Team Without Breaking the Bank

What is a success if you can't share it with someone? And to be fair, it's almost impossible to build an online business without having the dream team on your side. So, what are the steps you need to take to build a remote team that will stand by you through thick and thin?

The first thing you need to do as a boss is to define exactly what someone's job will be, how long it should take them to do the job, and how much you will pay them. When you don't exactly know what you want from someone it is going to be very difficult for them to do it.

How to build a remote team culture


The thinker is a manager, high-level creative person, and organizer. They hold the entire team together but, because they are so creative, they have problems with repetitive tasks.


The doer is an action taker that needs explicit instructions and likes to do the same tasks again and again.

If you want to build a strong culture with a remote team, you need to know exactly what you will need from both the doer and the thinker.

You are most likely to have more doers than thinkers on your team, so it's always a good idea to have one manager to every seven people you hire. They will be in charge of the entire team and their process.

When you hire someone for a certain task, you need the 80% rule which means that if someone can do the task 80% as good as you it is worth it to outsource and hire them.

The dream is to hire people who are better than you at every task but dedicating your entire time chasing that you might lose focus on your final goal.
