As you lead your business, do you experience mental blocks, time challenges, or the desire to bring in more revenue? Every entrepreneur experiences these issues while battling feelings of overwhelm because she’s trying to do it all.
In this episode, I talk with two-time A-Team alum Veronica Staudt, owner of Vintage Meet Modern, about what the A-Team is, how it works, and what you’ll get out of it.
If you’re ready to take care of the backside of your business, the A-Team is the way to get it done. Veronica is a great example of how A-Team can help a business transform and increase revenue by focusing on the operations side of business.
Veronica’s Business Before A-Team
Veronica started selling jewelry through eBay in 2009 after 20 years of working in the personal shopping and jewelry business. She realized she was bringing home increasing revenue, but she wanted to provide a more personalized experience for her shoppers, so she launched her own site.
Before A-Team, Veronica:
- Felt overwhelmed, tired, and heavy because she knew leaner times were ahead.
- Had a business that wasn’t growing how she wanted.
- Was trying to do everything at once.
“We cannibalize some of our own energy with negative thinking.” – Natalie Gingrich
The A-Team gives you practical strategies to personalize what works for you and your business.
Veronica’s Business After A-Team
As a result of going through A-Team, Veronica stopped getting up every day trying to do it all with a mega-long to-do list.
Through the program, Veronica:
- Discovered what she’s more passionate about so she could focus on those areas.
- Gained confidence in knowing what roles needed to be filled in her business.
- Learned that “efficiency is everything.”
- Completed homework and exercises that allowed her to measure results.
“If you’ve got an idea, if you’ve got a product, I can help you be successful.” – Natalie Gingrich
When you do the work in A-Team, you realize all you do in your business and how you spend your time. Veronica found the group component very helpful because it provided both accountability and motivation.
“Putting the processes into place, and doing the work, and going through A-Team is what has made our business move forward.” – Veronica Staudt
We walk through the seven pillars of business and spend one month on a strategic objective.
“The more you get into A-Team, the less overwhelmed you feel.” – Veronica Staudt
The A-Team is a safe place where you talk about real struggles and how to grow your business right now.
A-Team Time Commitment
We meet for one hour every single week. Here’s the weekly breakdown:
- Week 1: Live training with Natalie
- Week 2: Implement
- Week 3: Mastermind
- Week 4: Get It Done Day
You’ll recoup your investment because you get your time back and once you learn the system, you can continually implement it over time.
Veronica went from her business revenue being down by 20% to being up by 46% six months later. This came as a result of implementing what she learned in A-Team.
“We don’t do things that we know could easily move us forward in our business… so when you’re doing it in a group, and when you’re holding yourself accountable… it becomes a lot less scary.” – Veronica Staudt
