SPI 163: Michael Hyatt on the Secrets of Team Building and Leadership

It’s such a pleasure to have Michael Hyatt as my guest this week. Michael is a truly inspirational leader, and he brings an amazing wealth of wisdom and experience with him. He’s talking with me today about something close to home for every entrepreneur: being a leader and building your team.

I’ve spent a lot of time building my team over the past year. I’ve focused a lot on finding the right people for Team Flynn, and as a result, a lot of amazing things have happened in my business.

If you’re a solopreneur, going it alone without a team, you’re at a big risk of burn out. Hiring a group of supportive, like-minded people clears your schedule and your mind. Michael has some brilliant advice for how to do that, how to communicate efficiently, and how to become a better leader in the process.

Let’s get to it!
