It takes a village to build a successful brand. No matter how ambitious, determined, and hardworking you are, you need a skilled team in order to grow and scale your business to its fullest potential.
Get ready to meet one of my amazing right-hand women!
Camilla Brown has been a valued and valuable member of my team for the past 5 years. She started out as a virtual assistant and has since worked in many different capacities in my business. Her role has grown tremendously from her initial five hours a month — she is now running a team of her own and is responsible for their onboarding and their training.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that she has touched every part of my business… and that I couldn’t do it all without her. I am the face of my brand, but Camilla is the heart.
Camilla has experience helping to grow not only my business, but others as well. In this episode, she and I sit down to discuss the keys to building and training a strong team, our favourite project management tools, how to get the most out of your meetings, and why mompreneurs are so prone to overextending themselves!
