206. Trivinia Barber on Knowing How to Work Effectively With Your Team

Whether you work with a team, or have a team work for you, it’s essential to know how to work together effectively. Podcasts take a village, but it can quickly become a “too many cooks in the kitchen” scenario if communication and organization isn’t a priority.

Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast 

where each week Ronsley Vaz, with the help of a star-studded entrepreneurial guest lineup, explores why you should start a podcast; build an audience, and how to keep them hungry for more.

If you’re thinking about starting a podcast or simply looking for a better way to get your message out to your audience, then this is the podcast for you.

This week, Ronsley talks with the incomparable Trivinia Barber, host of the insightful podcast Diary of a Doer and founder of Priority VA. Trivinia has always been a “doer”, she doesn’t know any other way. But she didn’t necessarily think she was capable of owning her business, she just thought she was destined to run one. 

Over the years of working up the corporate ladder, Trivinia realized she was constantly overworking herself. Sure, she was amazing at organizing and getting stuff done, but she was wearing herself thin. It wasn’t until she started delegating work to team members that she realized this was the key to having it all- letting go of the reins and allowing others use their skills to give her own a rest, so she could focus on what she really wanted to in life. 

Ronsley picks Trivinia’s brain about the importance of her team when it comes to producing her podcast. They chat about the impact a good writer can have on creating engaging content for her show, and the process they have together that works for them. They discuss the kind of environment that allows all team members to thrive and how to incorporate in your own business and podcast.
