Scaling Your Business from the Ground Up!
“Transparency is key in business, once you become a leader of others it’s all about setting the expectations very clearly and then giving the people the right tools to achieve those expectations.” -Josh Cunningham
Our Founder & CEO, Josh Cunningham, joined Donald Kelley on The Sales Evangelist Podcast to talk about the many struggles business owners go through when growing their company. Josh will share some of the best practices in his business and show you how to create a profitable company from the ground up!

Enjoy the 18-minute podcast or “skip the line” with the timestamps below!

[2:30] SCALABILITY: Looking back, Josh believes that scalability was his biggest sales-related struggle. He knew he could do the job but wasn’t sure if he could train others to do it.

[4:30] SETTING EXPECTATIONS: He had failed to set expectations and to make clear to potential hires what they were getting into. Once you become a leader of others, give them your expectations and the tools to succeed.

[07:30] ATTRACTING THE RIGHT TALENT: Know the culture you want to create and then protect it. Josh believes that when building a culture worthy of your organization, it is likely that you will strongly attract the right people and strongly repel the wrong ones.

[9:16] CULTURE: Have a collection of people that are all driven and motivated, in a cohesive unit, and headed in the same direction. A team that supports and enjoys each other becomes a better team because of it. It’s the most harmonious thing you can do with any business.

[11:22] TRANSPARENCY IS KEY: It is definitely better to be transparent and upfront. Anything less is simply a waste of everyone’s time. Clearly communicate all of it – the good, the bad and the ugly.
