Tavia Redburn’s From Better Half To Boss Podcast Episode
9 years ago, I was at a job that sucked the life out of me every single day.
Fast forward to the day I finally had the courage to quit that job and go full time in my business. I thought I was FREE, but I quickly burnt out because I had NO way of keeping anything organized, no smart way to do my tasks, and efficiency and systems were my weakest links. I WAS EXHAUSTED. My (very wise) mom said, “You need to create systems and a workflow. You need a procedure manual, and then I can help.”
That was a catalyst for so much ahead – and now I’m so honored to teach thousands of business owners every day about the power of workflows and systems.
Recently, I had the extreme pleasure of speaking on Tavia’s podcast From Better Half to Boss (the owner of The Beauty In Birth) all about setting up workflows and systems in your business!
It’s really as easy as starting with these 3 steps to setup workflows in your business!
- Outline the big chapters or milestones that will be in your workflow (I like to think of these as things like: Inquiry, Booking, Onboarding, Fulfillment of Service – which typically has sub-chapters in itself, and Offboarding)
- Fill in all those chapters with the actions that need to happen (an email, task, questionnaire, invoice, meeting with client, etc.) and the automation triggers of when each action needs to happen
- Put all your workflows into your CRM of choice!!
Once I had that workflow in place, I was able to go down to working between 10 to 20 hours a WEEK in my photo business.
This can be you friends!! I like to say my story is like a burned out to balanced story. And now I am just so fired up about helping people find time freedom AND run a thriving business while having a thriving personal life!
