On August 8th, 2021, Brett Trembly, attorney, best-selling author, and co-founder of Get Staffed Up, was featured on The Verdict Is In podcast. It is hosted by Gerard Fox, founder, and partner of Gerard Fox Law. He is a fierce advocate who brings a passion to every matter to drive a favorable resolution. Mr. Fox has represented a wide variety of high-net-worth individuals, privately-owned companies, and high-profile entertainers. The Verdict Is In features some of the most interesting people in the world. And it educates listeners on topics that are relevant today to one’s personal growth, health, business, or community.
In this special episode, Brett and Mr. Fox talk about the five main areas that get business owners in legal trouble. They start by introducing Brett’s latest book, “The Danger Zones: The Top 5 Risk Areas Employers Don’t Realize Can Put Them Out of Business (And What To Do About Them!)”. As mentioned before, Brett is not only the co-founder of Get http://www.getstffedup.comStaffed Up, but also the Founder of Trembly Law Firm. And for the past 2 years, the Trembly Law Firm has analyzed and dissected years of business litigation data. They identified five categories of the most common areas of exposure threatening businesses today and called them “The Danger Zones”. In his book, Brett lists those threats and discusses how to avoid becoming one of the many unfortunate business owners drowning in legal fees.
One of the reasons why Brett decided to write this book was to help entrepreneurs and business owners take proactive action to protect their businesses. As a result, entrepreneurs would grow their businesses and avoid the courtroom.
Delegation during the pandemic
Furthermore, Mr. Fox asks Brett what is the one thing that most entrepreneurs get wrong in the delegation process. According to Brett’s experience, most business owners do not like to delegate. This leads to trying to do everything themselves and lose on billable hours and the opportunity to grow. Once a business owner hires an assistant to take over all the administrative tasks, the business can start growing. This is because the focus shifts to the billable work.
Lastly, Mr. Fox and Brett discuss the key lessons on scaling a business with a limited marketing budget. They both agreed that with the new hybrid offices, it is possible to have successful marketing by hiring virtual assistants (VA). At a lower rate than traditional staff members, a VA can look after the marketing tasks, while the firm can focus on growing without jeopardizing the quality of the service.
