Select the Right Entrepreneurs for Your House
Write down qualities you are looking for in a housemate the same way you would for a business partner. You might get along with your roommates, but they might not like each other. Be conscious of everyone’s thoughts and feelings to create a drama-free house.
Reach out to your own personal network and publicly share what you are creating and what kind of entrepreneurs you are looking for. Weak ties can be the solution to your problem.
Create a Structure for Your Entrepreneur House
Set Goals and Keep Each Other Accountable
It is important to have open and clear communication around the house. The Epic Entrepreneur House runs two hour weekly meetings with every single house member. They use this opportunity to share their wins. However, they also share reasons why they haven’t reached their weekly goals. You can also run hot seats and mini-masterminds.
Schedule a time and day when the whole house can sit down to share their highlights from the past week.
It’s not real until you put it in a calendar.
Find the Right House and Invest in Good Furniture
Once you found the entrepreneurs you want to live with, you need to find a great place to live in! It is important to have a big enough house to host business meetings, weekly masterminds, and potential networking events. Investing in big whiteboards to publicly share your goals, big screens to display presentations, and a common working area can be a good start.
You can also leave an extra room open and use it as an opportunity to host temporary residents or entrepreneurial travelers.
Rent a nice place that inspires you to work even harder. It will fuel you to achieve even more! You also need to think about the city in which you want to create your entrepreneur house. You are going to find more entrepreneurs in New York or Los Angeles than Orlando.
Delegate What You Can Delegate
Those 15+ hours could instead be utilized to expand your business and get more sales. You can gain an extra month by outsourcing house chores—15×52/24 = 32 days! if you were to live alone, you might not have the budget to have a private chef, but having 4-5 housemates makes that luxury a potential reality.
