ABOUT THE EMPIRE BUILDER PERSONALITY:
You’ve been in business a while, you’ve learned a thing or two. You’ve grown your business and your team, through sheer will power and effort. Now, you are ready to catapult your business into the top 13% of all small business owners.
You are confident in your business, but you notice that what worked in the past isn’t working as well anymore. You know that your next level of growth is about scaling your business, working smarter not harder and a greater expansion of the impact you and your team can have.
As you cast your sight on the future, you are thinking about the
unlimited potential of your business and what
change you could create in the world.
Pitfalls to Watch Out For:
Hard work has been a part of your success, but to make it to the next level, you’ll need to look for strategies that boost productivity, results and profits. Pay attention for ways to make things simpler and easier for your clients and your team.
This is a stage of transition and transformation. It can be unsettling, but do not lose heart. Let go of beliefs, habits and people who may have been a part of success in the past, but are not the best fit for your journey moving forward.
As your business scales, there are more things that will demand your attention, more things that need fixin’ to get your business to become a well-oiled machine. Your role in the business shifts from worrying about getting the work done to ensuring that the work gets done. You’ll likely need systems and processes to make your dream team soar.
EMPIRE BUILDER BUSINESS ACTION PLAN:
Refine your value proposition to find new ways to serve existing clients and paths for future expansion.
Boost profitability by looking at all business segments, ensure that the majority of your income is in highly profitable & valuable services.
You are moving into the role of leading from the middle. Your time is split between envisioning the future, training the team and empowering them in their roles.
You are growing to team. This is the time to switch from hiring for tasks to hiring for results. Stay lean, but invest in people who can help the business grow.
Implement a profit plan to easily make payroll (including for yourself) and budget for future growth, bonuses and charitable contributions.
Approachable, confident, and empowering, you are up-leveling your skills as an entrepreneur as you lean more into strategic planning and balancing the demanding roles of this stage.
Once the scaling fundamentals are in place you are ready to launch your scaling rocket. Implement a 3-year vision, 1-year goals and 90 day plans to stay nimble while you lock in exponential growth.

INSPIRING ENTREPRENEUR FOR EMPIRE BUILDERS:
Meet Mandy Price, CEO and Star Carter, COO of Kanarys, a tech start up firm that seeks to facilitate diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace by gathering transparent insights to help identify and improve the DEI efforts of corporations.
Named to the Google, Black Founders Class, the company and the duo are breaking barriers inside and outside the workplace. Their venture capital efforts totaled $ 4.6 Million in January 2021, meaning that they are two of only 93 Black women who have raised over $1 million in funding.
The two cite in a Houston Business Journal interview that the name of their business comes from the use of canaries in coal mines. The canaries were used by miners to detect harmful gases before they could hurt the miners. Their business, Kanarys, acts similarly, helping detect potential toxic work environments and situations for employees.
