Don't Miss Out!
Doors Are Closing Soon!
Here's a quick summary
of the program
(bc I'm in it to save you time.)
Is this Program Right for You?
YOU'VE GOT TO ABANDON
to step out of the business weeds
and become the fulfilled Digital CEO
of a thriving company:
Right now, things in your business "are working."
They don’t work seamlessly, but they work.
And somehow it feels easier doing it all by yourself (um, especially because someone might break something)!
After all, you’re bringing in hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue, right?
You technically could keep going exactly as you are to bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars more.
Maybe you could get by without hiring people now, and bring in a team later.
Do you really want to keep “getting by”?
And when will “later” actually be?
Will it be when you, your company, your health and your family life are even closer to breaking point?
When hiring people seems even MORE overwhelming, because now there’s so much to do that you need to hire eight people rather than three, and they all have to start within the next two months because you simply can’t keep going anymore?
Let’s be real -- you CAN’T keep putting this off.
Your business is successful -- but it’s balanced on a knife-edge.
You don’t have time to take hours out of your day to create job postings, conduct interviews, and train people, only to be disappointed in them.
Plus, what if someone does a bad job?
At this point, you know exactly how everything works, and you don’t want to waste time fixing new hires’ mistakes.
That said, your business is bigger than ever before and you know it needs more oxygen than you alone can provide it with.
Not to mention that taking care of everything yourself is proving to be a huge time, energy, and morale suck.
The truth is, you need HELP.
But to find, hire, and retain people who actually perform to your standards…
… you need help and support to do that.
Of course you want to attract talented people to your company.
But here’s the thing.
Once you’ve hired them, do you also know how to retain them?
You are what you attract -- and your dream team has to be built from the inside-out.
Because if your mindset’s not in the right place, you won’t hold on to the right people.
If your head’s not in the right place, you won’t nurture and motivate your team.
And if your heart’s not in the right place, you won’t manage to step away from your business.
Ultimately -- it’s not just about hiring the right talent.
It’s also about INSPIRING that talent.
And the inspiration has to start with you.
I get it.
It’s what everyone else is doing.
Besides, what's not tempting to retreat to a “queen bee” role where you sit out the day-to-day minutia of managing the business.
And you CAN transition into that role.
But if you want to hire an integrator to function as your right-hand person, you can’t just pay them good money, dump all of the problems you're overwhelmed with, and hope for the best.
If you hand over too much power too soon, you risk seeing your business grow in a way that’s misaligned with your values.
You'll have more moments of, "OMG that's NOT how I'd do it. That's now how to say it. That's NOT what I wanted."
Because a dream team is meant to be a beautiful extension of you. (You wanted to clone yourself, right?)
Therefore, the first several core hires need you in the center of that process.
Culture fit. You fit + Role fit + Business fit.
And as you hire WITH your integrator, as you share your preferences of yes or no, your
integrator will learn what you look for. How you interpret the core values. What culture fit means.
Each new hire needs to be steeped in this culture magic and the core of your values before, during, and after the interview.
And that magic comes from you and starts with only you.
Look, you WILL eventually be released into that visionary role to get out of the operational work. That's the goal.
But first, you have to build a core team whose approach to your business (and whose passion for it!) mirrors your own.
That shows me you KNOW you've got to do things differently and that you're open to that.
After all, you’ve heard so many people swear by them. You listened to the podcasts interviewing the authors.
But let me ask, are they on your bookshelf or desk collecting dust?
Maybe you read one? Skimmed them? Half listened on Audible at 2x speed?
So let's be honest...
if you read them or if they're waiting to be read... something’s preventing you from finishing them.
Something’s preventing you -- YOU, the action-taker extraordinaire -- from fully implementing on them.
And maybe it’s this.
You recognize that this isn’t as simple. You realize this isn't just tech or words, this is layers more complex.
You recognize this is about real, flesh-and-blood HUMAN BEINGS.
Human beings -- with their mood swings, emotions, hang-ups, talents, complicated personal lives, wild ideas, big dreams, and complex, messy LIVES.
And frankly, you have no idea how to handle all that.
You kinda don't want to.
Yes -- Congratulations! You figured out how to become a successful entrepreneur.
But you’ve never had leadership or manager training. (And if you did, that was in corporate right? For someone ELSE's business?)
I know what you're saying...
I love business books! I'm book smart! I'll just read the books and do what it says. It's faster, it's way more cost-effective.
But would you agree that knowledge and theory is not the same as REAL experience and actually taking the steps to DOING what it says?
Do you think you read a book and learn how to ride a bike or swim?
(because if you can - go you! Most of us can't, I assure you.)
Because although you see how the principles, models, and case studies in the books and podcasts work in theory...
This isn’t about theory.
This is about living and breathing PEOPLE.
This is about how you can change how you do YOUR business and not someone else's business.
Because while you might have been a successful corporate manager with awards and lots of love from your direct reports, I hate to break it to you... but it's a whole different game when it's YOUR BUSINESS.
And you need an approach that shows you how to handle the actual PEOPLE in your business to have a hope of getting this right without taking everything personally.
I hear you.
I’ve seen founder after company director after CEO furiously burn the candle at both ends.
Firing off emails at 3 AM.
Skipping meals, workouts, and vacations all for the good of the business -- and then turning to me and asking, “Teresa, why don’t I find my business fun anymore?”
Here’s the thing.
Building a team that sets you free from a business which is wearing down your patience and stamina will take a time commitment of at least 1-2 hours a week.
But that’s only an impossible commitment if you allow it to be.
If you know deep-down that carrying on as you are isn’t sustainable and won’t place you in a position that you WANT to find yourself in 12 months from now, then I insist that you find a way to block off the time.
On my end, I promise to spare you any fluffy theory which isn’t designed for fast-moving implementation.
Meaning -- every hour you invest in the Lead Your Legacy will have a rapid, exponential payoff.
As the leader of a company with massive growth potential, your decision to commit this time to your business’ scalability is the most valuable, leveraged decision you could make at this point.
This is not a course or just an ordinary program.
This is a mentorship experience. More like a learning mastermind.
It is a combination of
I'll teach you with everything I know that works with regards to building a dream team, and you're responsible for doing the work.
I'll be your guide and coach to help you make the mindset shifts from being a business owner to becoming, thinking, and acting like a CEO.
Thanks for asking!
The application is there so I can learn more about you, get a feel for what you have been trying and encountering in your business so I can save you time and we can deep dive straight into the heart of things on the call.
It's also helps me assess how I might best serve you and whether you are a fit for this program.
Possibly. Possibly not.
In our biweekly group coaching calls and hot seats, we’ll take an intimate and honest look at your current people and company culture, and at what kind of Dream Team you’ll ultimately need to create to get where you want to go.
But first, we’ll clarify your overarching vision for the company, and have you work through your hesitations, worries, and burning questions about what it would actually mean for you to relinquish certain tasks or hold on to particular responsibilities.
Combined with the exhaustive resource vault and done-for-you templates that you’ll receive in the incubator, this will enable you to hire and onboard with ease -- confident that each personnel decision you ultimately make is a robust investment in your company’s future growth.
And you’ll be able to optimize your funnel, advertising, automation, and all the other functions that relate to scaling your business once you have a dynamic Dream Team of whip-smart players ready to handle everything with minimal supervision and maximum confidence.
Because truly stepping into the role of your company’s CEO is indispensable if you want to capitalize on future opportunities and growth strategies.
Skipping this can land you and your company in burnout mode -- because you won’t have the bandwidth to offer an exceptional customer experience to new buyers.
The Lead Your Legacy is your invitation to avoid the burnout by doing the must-have groundwork that will sustain your company for years to come.
I’ve read them too, and they say plenty of great things :)
But the mission of Lead Your Legacy is to focus on YOUR unique business, in order to position you for growth and to truly embrace your leadership role.
The aim is to empower you to implement tried-and-tested principles only in so far as they would work for your situation.
Which means that we won’t be wasting your time with any hotshot theories that aren’t relevant or applicable to you.
Instead, I’ll provide you with hyper-specific, customized steps that will swiftly put you on the road to attracting and leading the dynamic team of A-players you dream about.
Did you know how many employees Instagram had when they were acquired by Facebook for 1 Billion dollars?
Yep. That's it. To run a billion dollar company.
While startups have the reputation of VC funding, ping-pong tables, and lots of swag, that's not what makes a startup a startup nor a successful one.
The ones that get the 1B exit like Instagram know that ONE homerun hire can be the equivalent of 5-10 people.
The succesful startups know how to do more with less. They leverage lean startup principles and know the magic power of having a magnetic culture.
That's what I'm here to teach you.
Because why should tech startups have all of the money and money?
90% of leadership is related to communications and is a 100% LEARNABLE skill.
And despite what many people think, not many CEOs know how to do it right out the gate.
Ultimately, the skills that brought you here may or may not have prepared you to take on this role.
But at the end of the day --
No matter how much discomfort you feel around the idea of stepping up as your company’s CEO and leader, I know that you’re meant to do this.
By building your business into a highly profitable company and rapidly transforming yourself into a massively successful entrepreneur, you’ve already demonstrated your capacity for taking action and embracing growth.
Once you’ve gone through the Lead Your Legacy, you’ll have grown even further -- into the inspiring leader you have the obvious capacity to be.
I’ll be walking you through the winning practices that I’ve used in tech startups with on-site teams and remote teams scattered all over the globe.
Our biweekly coaching sessions as well as the training modules, templates, and resource vault will take into account considerations for in-person, virtual and blended teams.
I understand. You don't have time.
So let me ask you... you say you needed a team yesterday, so what's stopping you?
And how's the outsourcing working out for you?
They say a team is a reflection of a leader. The quality of your time and effort you put into hiring the right people will be directly reflected in the kind of people you hire.
Hiring and managing a great team - the one that truly is committed and cares about your business the way YOU do... can't be found by just following a quick how-to checklist and a cheatsheet or by taking an online course.
hire slow. fire fast.
How to do this isn't a science, it's an art. It's hard. It takes time. Great leaders aren't made overnight.
If this hiring and leading a team was quick and easy, we'd all be billion dollar CEOs.
I'll bullet point the list here, and you can scroll on to get a detailed breakdown of the Lead Your Legacy Program which consists of:
4 program components
- Lead Your Legacy 4 part framework
- 12 Live coaching calls
- Time-saving Resource Vault
- A small private Facebook group of only 14 members
- 6 Fireside Chats with Experts
- 1 VIP Ticket to an Exclusive Retreat near Austin, Texas (details TBD)
- HR Vault of Lawyer-approved templates and job descriptions
- One hand-picked Leadership book for you and your needs
Fast acting bonus for the first 5 who register:
- ONE 60-min 1-1 strategy call with me
This particular program launch is open ONLY to online Digital CEOs - those who mostly or entirely run their business online without the overhead of an office.
If you're interested in this program in a focused group of brick-and-mortar business, CLICK HERE and leave your name and email here!
You're welcome to head to daringlygreat.com/work-with-me to choose between a half day intensive or a full-day workshop. My time is premium, so understand that my prices reflect that.
I can walk through as many principles as I can in the time alotted, but this does not afford you the library of content, the vault, nor the ongoing coaching that I know you need to truly receive the transformation you need.
Those consulting packages are meant for those who need some laser coaching and consulting to get over a specific problem.
Please note, I no longer offer ongoing 1-1 coaching.
We believe that this program gives you the system, processes and resources you need to craft the magnetic culture and the processes to attract, hire, and grow the team you need to scale your business and give you space for personal time!
We have a 30-day refund policy. If you attend all of the calls, and can show us that you've done the work and are still not satisfied, then you may apply for a refund by submitting proof of your work to Customer Support inside of 30 days of your payment, for a full refund for the amount you paid less taxes and fees.
But I know you'll be 100% satisfied.
Let's break this all down.
Arc 1: Own Your Leadership
