My business has had some insane growth lately which I am proud of and right now, *believe it or not* I have a bit of downtime and am catching up on Administration and Improving Process.
From visiting the dentist, servicing the car, updating Domain Details, getting the detail right on the website, speaking to the accountant – I am using the calm before the storm to get as much done as I possibly can.
One thing I think I am realizing now and finally reaping the rewards is process and automation. I have spent quite a great deal of my time building different processes in my business that work 24 hours a day.
This has included anything from my Marketing Mentoring in the Awesome Marketing Vault, setting up email marketing, nailing the advanced usage of Facebook and even so – going to lots of business networking events and becoming part of the furniture there.
In short, it’s been a busy a time for me and I have found that it does take lots of work to setup Automated Processes.
BUT the upside is, once you have a process setup (even say Xero in a simple case), it makes your business stronger, helps you get your job done in less time – and talking Marketing Processes, it helps bring you more work.
This for me has created a situation where I am delivering more, not as busy and actually able to think! Being ‘able to think’ is awesome and I think the more time we have – the better we are to come up with creative new ideas to get more done.
My advice & learnings? In all businesses we get busy where we don’t get things done – but we all get some downtime. When you do, invest in process, systems, improving the business and this will pay dividends.
When you get busy again, your processes will be working hard for you in the background!
I only have a few days of downtime and I shall be back to it – so I am enjoying it while I can!
Love your work, thanks for the read and of course – Stay Awesome!
