The more we give, the more we succeed

When you have incredible team members, it can be tempting to want to hold on to them forever.

We like to celebrate anniversaries here at Business Chicks. Not so much the romantic kind, but we always make a big deal of team members’ first days and their anniversaries with the business. We also celebrate when people move on from Business Chicks. That sounds odd, I know. But stay with me …  

One of the goals of a leader should be developing a team to the point where they want to do different things, so when one of my team members told me recently that she wanted to go back to uni and study social work, I couldn’t have been happier for her.  When you have incredible team members, it can be tempting to want to hold on to them forever. But one of the things I’ve learned is that a protective mindset - thinking  ‘I can’t give anything up because it’s taking something away from me’ - doesn’t help anyone. It only hinders you from possibility and your team from living a life with purpose. 

Our ultimate goal at Business Chicks is to support every single one of you to realise your own power and potential. Nothing makes us happier to hear stories of people who start their own businesses, try something new or go on the trips they’ve always dreamed. And it’s especially impactful when they find that courage because of someone they’ve met in the community or because of an experience they’ve had with Business Chicks.  

That’s why it’s never surprising when the same thing happens within our team! They get so inspired by the people they meet, they go off and spread their wings too. When that happens it’s a celebration for all of us because it means we’ve done something right.  

When that team member flies away we’ll have to fill her role and we also have a couple of other new roles available in our growing family. We’re currently looking for a Marketing Manager, a Community Manager and a Marketing Co-ordinator and if you know someone we should speak to, we’d love for you to share this email with them. And if that person you recommend ends up joining us, to say thank you, we’ll give you beautiful gift bag from Benefit Australia valued at $250. 

The other thing we celebrate here at Business Chicks is when a team member decides they want to fly home. That happens often, and I should know - this is the third time I’ve come back to Business Chicks!

It is true. It will be the best if you keep your team members. You will get more close to them by time and then you will feel it like a family. You just have to be lucky because it is hard to get coworkers of your same type. kitchen remodeling contractor Reply

Workplace becomes great when you have incredible team members who have the same passion as you have towards work. As I check out this site I understood how important it is to have a happy work life for a women to make their life beautiful. I am missing a place like this. Reply
