Location: Company HQ – Reading Time: 5-6mins Number of Days in the Office: 19, Total Number of Employees: 214 This week has been crazy! In fact, the entire month has been pretty mad! As my quest to become a Full Time Virtual CEO continues, I am making more and more moves to make sure I not only hit the target and achieve the goal, but more importantly, that my company will be in ‘good hands’ on a day-to-day basis when I do ‘disappear’, so to speak! One of the big aspects for me to achieve my goal is in alleviating the stress of daily business management, whilst still focusing on growth. So, this month saw a new hire. Our new Business Development Manager will be taking a lot off my personal plate, in regards to working with prospective clients and our internal marketing team, too. Up until recently this has been ALL ME. As she becomes more comfortable, she will also be strategizing with our existing clients, and helping them grow their accounts with us, too. I am really excited about this hire. Nothing is more important in business than growing and getting bigger.
There is no ‘I’ in Team
Next up, we had our Annual Team Building Expedition in late June. A fantastically glorious day at one of Cebu’s most beautiful resorts. The entire staff was present and enjoyed a great day of team building activities, fun in the sun, as well as spending a certain amount of the day wet, too! The evening ended with dinner, some awards being given out, a couple of prizes up for grabs – including an iPod, and a quick speech by yours truly. This was easily the BEST event we’ve had for a while and I am already looking forward to the next one.
New Clients, New Growth
We also started business with two new clients in late June. Both clients started at a good number of employees, which has pushed us well over the 200 employee mark, and will both look at growing their accounts with us after we kick off with a good start – which we will obviously do, of course!
Lights, Camera, Action!
As you’ll notice, I’ve started shooting more videos again, like the Sneak Peak into My Business and the ‘What’s it Like’ post on the Philippines over the last couple of weeks. I’m actually going to continue to do this going forward for the blog. Some of them will be stand alone posts, some will be added to our new iTunes feed. Bottom line is I enjoy shooting these clips for you, and I enjoy the feedback they get even more. Thanks for all your kind words.
New ‘Virtual Staff Match-Maker’ Service on the Way!
We have also been forging on with the completion of the set-up of our new service, which has come about from nothing but sheer out and out demand. It’ll be launching in the third week of July. More about this in a future post. Plus a ‘special offer’ for subscribers of the blog. So, there you have it… Another month in the history of the VBL Blog, the Live2Sell Group and my personal goal to completely eliminate myself from the day-to-day operations of the company by the end of the year. Let me know what you think of this months’ going-on’s by commenting below. Would love to hear from you! See you next week.
