Anyone know what this symbol is? Right. This is just such a breakthrough for me. What about if you hire people, and you don’t have enough work for them to do?
I’ve heard this one a lot. I’ve got a VA, I don’t want to give them. Come up with an infinity project. So for me, when I sold my other businesses, I started to think about my passion more, a lot, obsessively, all the time, every minute. And I thought, you know what? I’m going to just create a surf site because it’s my passion, I’m interested in it. And we know some stuff about this.
Our surf site now has almost got 5000 indexed pages in a very short time. It’s our infinity project. It’s the project we work on when we got nothing else to do. So if my team is reporting green, then I know they’re just going to be spending time over there. There is absolutely no limit to how many blog posts they can make on that site, zero limit.
In our Slack channel, we have a surf news feed and with the use of some amazing technology which I didn’t have anything to do with, they’ve went and scoured the internet for all the top surfing websites. And they hooked up the RSS feed or when they didn’t have an RSS feed, they use something to make it work. And I don’t know how they did that. I think maybe even Dave helped, to start posting to that news channel. So every day, when I log into Slack, I see like 50 or 60 news articles about surfing, which is great. I love it.
And my team look through that and they pick the best ones. And they go and research and they do a schedule of what posts to do for the next week. And they can go and work on this. There’s zero limit to how much they can work on this project. So I know all my wages that I spend on my full-time team are building me an asset that I plan to sell one day. Does this make sense?
So think about that. If you haven’t written that action item, I suggest you do. What can my team do when I’m busy at a conference or I’ve got nothing, I’ve given them nothing. What is their default setting that they go back to as the baseline that’s still working in my favor?
