Today marks a bit of a sad day for my team and I, as two of my team members say farewell and step out onto their own paths to independent financial success.

Tim, who I wrote about here, and Shane, who has worked as a content provider and has been an excellent source of ideas (and the vast majority of pop culture references) found across this blog, are leaving us at the end of this month to pursue their own Personal Independent Earnings with their own company. They are both very intelligent individuals, well equipped to succeed in everything they do, and I and everyone else on my team would like to wish them the best of luck in all of their future endeavors. I know that they will find every bit of success they seek.

Their departure has been in the cards for several months now, and we have all been working behind the scenes to ensure this transition is as smooth as possible, which leads us to the topic of today’s post. It is inevitable that over the course of your business life, there will come times when members of your team will move on to other projects and endeavors, finding their own path to success. There is no getting around it, this is going to happen. So it’s important that you be prepared for it.

The idea of replacing someone is not an easy one to face, but face it you must, as you don’t want to leave a gap in your business. With today’s specific example, I’ve had plenty of time to work out the details of their transition. This is time that you should do your best to give yourself. The more, the better. You may have to train another team member to take on new tasks, or even find an entirely new team member to take on a role. You want this to be as seamless as possible, working well ahead of time to make sure that all the pieces are in place as you and your team members, both new and old, all move into your new roles. Don’t leave any of it to the last minute, and certainly don’t leave anything to chance. Prepare yourself and your team as soon as it becomes known that such a transition is going to take place, so that when it does occur, all is ready.

Today marks a new chapter in all of our lives. It’s a sad time to be sure, but also an exciting one. I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities that will arise in the weeks and months to come, and most importantly, I look forward to sharing my experiences with all of you, my faithful readers.

And to Tim and Shane, good luck my friends. May success find you in all that you do.
