Free up your time and headspace by finding (and keeping) your Unicorn support person

Are you struggling to find the time to do all things you want and need to do to bring your dreams for your business to life?

One of the biggest challenges of running your own business is feeling like you need to do everything yourself. You are a clever, capable woman (you might not feel like that all the time but you are). Just because you are capable of doing something, doesn’t mean you need to be the one to do it.

Your business can’t possibly grow if you keep working this way (and you will end up a burnt-out mess if you aren’t already!)

You need the right support, someone you feel confident delegating to.

You need a Unicorn 🦄

WTF is a Unicorn, Michelle???

A unicorn is a magical person who makes your life easier. They can do things better and quicker than you. They genuinely care about the success of your business, making you wonder what you ever did without them.

You deserve a Unicorn. I have seen the transformation that happens when you have one in your business.

Once you have one, you will have time to focus on the tasks in your zone of genius – revenue generating activity that leads you to achieving your goals and the things that make your heart sing 🎵.

But how do I know if I’m ready to hire a Unicorn?

Where do I even find this magical person?

What am I supposed to ask them in the interview?

What if I make a mistake and hire the wrong person? Perhaps you’ve done this before and now you are too scared to do it again!

Where do I find time to train someone up? Isn’t it just easier to do it all myself? (spoiler alert – it’s not!)

Where does the money come from to pay for them?

Like so many things in your business, before you actually do it, you feel like you don’t know what the hell you’re doing. It seems overwhelming and gut-churningly risky, right?

I’m going to make it less scary for you by showing you exactly how and where to find one and what to do to keep them.

Delegating to the right person is one of the most impactful things you can do to grow your business.

I know this from working with business owners just like you throughout my career. These women started out solo, superstars at their craft with clients who loved them and were showering them with work but their growth was stunted because they were too busy doing the job of 10 people.

Sadly I was seeing women throw good money after bad on Seek ads that were not attracting their ideal candidates. They would then settle for whoever landed in their lap and wonder why they were both unhappy two months down the track and had to start the process all over again.

Finding support staff when you run your own business is different to recruiting in big business. The traditional recruitment process doesn’t apply here.

There is a myth that all our problems will be solved if we “just get a VA to do it”. What even is a VA??

I also realised that some business owners had never interviewed anyone before. They were relying on a Google search of “Great interview questions” to carry them through with no idea what to do next.

All of this confusion and the mistakes that came from it cost time and money.

I know you can’t afford to waste your time and money getting it wrong.

But you know what is going to save you time and enable you to make money??

Finding Unicorn support for your business.

In my FINDING UNICORNS program I will walk you step-by-step through the process I have used to recruit and keep exceptional support in businesses.

We are going to cover

Identifying exactly what help you need in your business (sometimes it’s not what you think)

Unique Unicorn attributes - what sets them apart and what special characteristics you need in yours

Different types & levels of Unicorn support available - I’ll unscramble the difference between an EA/VA/PA/OBM/OM and all other support roles, their skill level & salary expectations

Permanent v. Contract Unicorns - the pros & cons

Creating accurate job briefs to ensure your needs are met

Where to find your Unicorn - alternatives to throwing an ad on Seek and hoping for the best

How to write job ads that attract Unicorns & out-of-the box application styles

Screening - shortcuts to processing applications so that it doesn’t become another time suck for you.

Interview tips - questions & strategies to learn all about who you are hiring before you actually do so

Making offers & preparing contracts

Setting Yourself Up for Success - the onboarding process that ensures your Unicorn starts off on the right foot

Managing Expectations - how to avoid disappointment & frustration with ongoing communication (not micromanaging!)

Whether you are thinking about hiring next month or sometime this year, this program is going to set you up for a smooth experience and prevent you from making costly mistakes.

This is for you if:

You want to grow your business and you know what’s possible if you could just find the time to work on the important stuff

You are missing opportunities in your business because you don’t have time to pursue them

You fantasise about off-loading tasks from your To-Do list that are sucking up your brain space

You know you need help but you have no idea what to get help with or where to find them

You have hired before and it hasn’t worked out

You want to attract and keep amazing support in your business

You are tired of wasting time and money redoing other people’s work

This isn’t for you if:

You think that hiring support means sitting back and counting all your money while your Unicorn does everything else

Your business is not yet making profit (sorry, you do need $$$ to pay for this person)

Hi I’m Michelle

I have built a business supporting female entrepreneurs just like you by relieving them of the overwhelm that comes from running a business alone.

Finding Unicorns is one of the ways I do this – it’s one of my Superpowers. I’ve recruited hundreds (maybe even thousands – I’m very old!) of them throughout my career. I have helped build businesses from solo entities to global brands by hiring the right people and I want to help you too.

I’m not just good at finding Unicorns, I’m good at finding people that stay. There are people I hired for businesses I worked in years ago who are still there. These businesses were run by women just like you.

I know what works and what doesn’t.

I know the RED FLAGS, the secrets and the shortcuts. I get that as a small business owner you can’t default to the HR department. You ARE the HR department (and the marketing department, and the customer service department, and finance and ALL the departments).
