Having a team is crucial for success. But there’s a big difference between having a team and having a STRATEGIC team. In this episode, Sydney Garvey, owner of Garvey’s Gardens, a successful flower farm and retail florist shop in Colorado, and I get into the importance of building a strategic team and how it can help you scale your business to new heights.
Sydney Garvey shares her experience of transitioning from having a team to building a strategic team. As the owner of Garvey’s Gardens, she started as a flower farmer and later expanded to a brick and mortar florist shop. Sydney emphasizes the importance of having a team to be able to take on more of a workload without working yourself to the ground.
But don’t get it twisted, having a team can be both a blessing and a burden. While a team can help with some of your workload, a strategic team goes one step further. A strategic team assumes ownership of a specific area of your business, allowing you to focus on the bigger picture and scale your operations! That’s the kind of team you need to create!
As a student of the Abundance Group, Sydney honed her skills and knowledge, but she needed more specific guidance in the wedding business aspect which was the perfect fit in our Accelerator. After joining the program, Sydney tripled her wedding business between 2022 and 2023, with projections to triple again!
What’s her secret? Building a strategic team capable of handling the influx of business. Sydney was then able to scale her operations without being overwhelmed.
The Accelerator provided her with the resources to understand and implement effective strategies for her website, social media, ads, and more. She listened to modules during downtime and revisited specific sections when needed, such as website development and marketing strategies. For the coming year, Sydney is focused on TRIPLING her wedding business again. More importantly, she has a spending plan in place, using the templates and tools provided in the Accelerator program.
What’s Sydney’s advice? If you have the creative side down but need guidance on the business end, this program is a must. It’s an investment that pays for itself with just one additional wedding booking.
Looking back on that version of myself, in a constant state of overwhelm in both business and #momlife, I would have never guessed that I would be where I am now.
✨Running a business that pays me a full time salary…
✨Doing less than 5 weddings myself each year…
✨Employing a team of AMAZING women…
✨Helping hundreds of wedding pros create their own profitable businesses…
..and truly enjoying the dream life we’ve built
Not in that fluffy, influencer, ‘do-it-for-the-Gram’ way…
…but in that genuinely-happy, more-freedom, more-travel, and more space for real-life mess way.
(That’s what success looks like for ME)
