When do entrepreneurs go into business for themselves? When do you create systems? When is it time to hire? I am asked these questions daily from my clients and followers. Even though I can answer these questions quicker than I can make a coffee (mmm, coffee), its been a journey to get to where I am today.
My brief, 20-minute interview with Colin Morgan of The Daily Grind Podcast packs a lot! We discuss my entrepreneurial journey and the realizations that got me to where I am today. It’s no secret that before I was a trend-setting, system-building, universe-altering OBM, I was a VA. BUT do you know what I did before that? (Hint: it involves design and mud) These years that I refer to as the “dark ages” was before I had SOPs or a Project Management tool in place *shutter*.
Entrepreneurship taught me how to start-up, cash-out, and gracefully ride an emotional roller coaster. Every day, I grow my Agency and uplift my OBM clients with the lessons that I learned during those years.
When I speak with a new hair-on-fire client (aka express train to meltdown-ville), who has no systems in place, I get it! I set up a Project Management tool, create SOPs, and help them create the business they were born to lead!
