- “You’re on mute”–scaling communication on a growing team
29th of November 2022 11AM CST / 6PM CEST
The last few years have brought a lot of change and evolution—especially for entrepreneurs. We’ve seen teams work through challenging situations and come out the other side unharmed, but we’ve also seen the pitfalls of scaling a team and the silos of communication that can come with it. Wondering how to avoid falling into the pits of bad communication while growing a successful team? We’ll let you in on our “secret sauce” for communicating. There are still some seats available for this webinar!

Misconceptions about entrepreneurship
The idea is everything.
Focusing on that one silver-bullet idea is a temptation. But the truth is, no one cares about an idea!
People care about what your idea or your product/service can do for them or how it can help them solve a problem. Rather than seeing themselves as idea-generator, true entrepreneurs are generally problem-solvers.
You have to do it all yourself.
While entrepreneurship is a lonely road, it’s not an individual sport. You have a team standing behind you, including mentors, investors, team members, and even supportive spouses and family members.
Doing everything yourself is pretty tiring. Learn to ask and accept help. Your vulnerability will create a connection with your team.
If you have ambitious people in your company, aligning their objectives with those of the company will drive overall success. It’s a very healthy way of realizing goals.
Entrepreneurship is certainly not easy, and while it is a wealth path to which there is no upper limit to how much you will earn, it will take time, and you will need to be dedicated to the journey. Think of entrepreneurship as a return on investment. Your input is just as important as your output. An easy input doesn’t lead to a rich output.
You just have to find the right way.
Entrepreneurship is like a rollercoaster. Even when you find your secret to success, it’ll most likely change. What got you here, won’t get you there, and you’ll need to be able to adapt.
Some final words
Entrepreneurs are innovators, leaders and innovators who have the power to transform industries, create jobs, improve society and make our lives better. Entrepreneurs are people from all walks of life who have taken risks in their own lives and succeeded with their ideas, becoming role models for others and creating change in our world economy.
As fellow entrepreneurs, we understand your journey and your business challenges. Our founders started Bloom Growth™ because they imagined a business growth system that nurtures leaders of leaders.
So from a couple of entrepreneurs to another, we thank you for supporting the world-wide community of entrepreneurship. We acknowledge your hard work and boldness to make change happen!
Here’s to entrepreneurship!
