How Entrepreneurs are Building Successful and More Efficient Companies

Every good entrepreneur knows it’s true: besides having a brilliant business idea, employees are any firm’s most valuable asset. But once a business takes off, the romantic idea of founding a successful business in the proverbial garage quickly fades and reality settles in. Fact is, day-to-day issues of HR management can distract you from another key to success: growing your business.

Saving Hours by Outsourcing
The average small business owner spends more than 25 percent of his or her day handling employee-related paperwork. With additional tasks added for recruitment, hiring and training of new employees, this number quickly grows to 35 to 45 percent. In other words, rather than innovating and expanding the business, they spend almost half of any workday on administrative tasks that are a necessary evil.

While 401(k) plans or a premium benefits package keep current employees happy and attract high-caliber candidates, most entrepreneurs prefer to focus on their passion for the business, rather than on HR. They have very limited interest in federal and state regulations regarding everything from workers’ compensation to workplace health and safety, not to mention additional complexities related to employee benefits with the recent passage of the Affordable Care Act. HR outsourcing firms like TriNet, provide small, growing companies a proven way to scale, protect and streamline their business. What’s more — this approach allows entrepreneurs to focus on what matters most to them.

Power and Efficiency Through Integrated Technology Solution
Employees have come to expect anytime access to their HR information. But the cost of implementing and maintaining a state-of-the-art HR information system (HRIS) is simply out of reach for the average small and medium firm. But that’s precisely what TriNet has done — creating an affordable, cloud-based solution and mobile app to enable employees, managers and executives to access the information they need, when they need it.

Risk Mitigation: Share the Liability, Focus on Your Business

The Disrupters 2013: The Entrepreneurs Who Are Changing Their Industries

Disruption isn’t cool. Historically, disruptive ideas and companies haven’t been those behind the groundbreaking technologies or products–i.e., the cool stuff. Disrupters aren’t usually first to market with a new invention. They are, however, visionaries who grasp how an existing idea can be made better or cheaper or accessible to millions.

History is littered with examples: Ford’s assembly line and stripped-down Model T brought cars to the everyman. Steve Jobs took the computer mouse, at the time a custom-built and expensive gadget, and had someone figure out how to make it for less than a quarter of the cost. didn’t create online shopping, but it did bring millions of products to one storefront and deliver a better price.

The same goes for our disrupters here. They saw opportunities, ignored by existing players in their fields, to get in, grow big, change the game–and get rich along the way.

How to Achieve Your Goals Fast

Greetings from New York City. Please know how grateful I am to have you in this community.

So….someone on Twitter asked me “Does all of this leadership and success material really work? Or is it all (expletive deleted).” A little cynical, no? 😉

I haven’t replied as yet. But I wanted to use her tweet to make a point. With great respect…

“Nothing works (no book+online course+event+idea) until you make the time and commitment to DO THE WORK.”

Success is less about learning superb ideas and more about having the guts/patience/focus and smarts to get the ideas DONE.

Ultra-successful people are just uncommonly skilled at execution. And we all can get to this place. Via daily practice.

So to kickstart your best life, I wanted to show you how much I’m trying to help by giving you a wealth of free resources.

These have taken me a lot of time and money to create and edit and prepare. All I ask is that you share them with 3 people today. So I get to feel I’m making more of an impact on people’s lives. And that you ACT on them. With speed. Please.

JK Rowling’s Secret Success Weapon

I know you’re all about Mastery. And Excellence. And crafting an iconic life. Along with doing things most people call impossible. For this, I applaud you.

So I wanted to share a great story with you…

All she ever wanted to do was write. But few believed in her.

She ended up as a single mom. Collecting social benefits checks–just to get food onto the table. For her and her child.

On a trip from Manchester to London in 1990, her train was delayed. And an idea burst into her imagination. About a boy who didn’t know what he was.

She called this kid Harry Potter. And she wrote about his adventures.”

12 publishers rejected the book. A small house called Bloomsbury Press eventually agreed to publish it. But even then, the author was told “you’ll never make any money on children’s books.”

Yet, the book caught fire. Touched the hearts of millions. Inspired a new generation to read.

Of course, the woman is JK Rowling.

And she’s sold 400,000,000 books. And built a fortune of $800,000,000.

From an idea. About a young wizard. With a brave heart.

Her secret “weapon”?…


“For some to love you, some must loathe you,” she brilliantly observed.

And she’s right. All visionaries are initially ridiculed before they are revered.

All enormously successful people first meet with rejection, resistance and yes, sometimes outright hatred. Criticism truly is the price of greatness. And you really need to be so invested in your dream + abilities + passion that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING will knock you off your game.

So be strong. Go for world-class. And when you get knocked down, dust yourself off, and stay true to your loftiest visions. In the end, you’ll be grateful you did.


Celebrate your people

What is a business? It is simply a group of people coming together to make a positive difference to people’s lives.

Every company should celebrate their people. If you don’t have great people, you won’t have a great business. Thankfully at Virgin we attract the kind of people who really get the brand and want to help us make business a force for good. This week I have met so many of our team across our Australian businesses, and never cease to be amazed about their dedication, enthusiasm and sense of fun.

From crowdsurfing as Virgin Australia staff erformed a song they had written, to breakfast with Virgin Active, chats in the canteen with Virgin Money and parties with Virgin Mobile, it has been a rollercoaster ride around the country.

As well as sharing lots of laughs and posing for plenty of photos, it is always interesting to have conversations with our staff, hear their suggestions for improvements and plans for the future. There is a wonderful team spirit that binds us all together and that is what makes the difference – especially here in Australia.

It’s important to be flexible with staff, give them options and let them know their voices will be heard. Then you’ll find people will be more likely to stay and be loyal to the brand. We have people still working at Virgin who have been with us for decades, because of the culture and sense of fun we try to instil.

A great advantage of having a team who will do anything for each other is you can get through difficult moments as well as enjoying the good times. Virgin has almost faced oblivion many times in the past and we have always came out the other side by sticking together.

Too often companies forget that invigorated, motivated, happy staff having fun are the key to a business successful. Every company should celebrate their staff. If that involves a party or two, the more the better!
