Listen to the episode:
Kate Jones is the owner of Kate Waldo + Co. and she helps bloggers and influencers who are sick of spending countless hours on administrative work, get and stay organized with the admin tasks of their business so that they can get back to doing what they love.
In today’s episodes, we geek out a little over systems, outsourcing, and automations in your business. (You know I love those things too!)
We're breaking down what to outsource and knowing when it's time to get support, Kate's favorite systems she uses for herself and her clients, and how to choose your "queen bee" role in your business in the beginning to allow your business to flow so much easier.
Some of the other things we cover in the episode:
Kate’s best practices on how to automate your admin tasks so you can get back to doing what you love
How to establish your “queen bee” role in your business that allows you to realign your purpose & have your business flow so much easier
Slowing down & identifying that one thing you need to be focusing on so that everything in your business has a purpose
The difference between effective, productive work & busy work
"Eating the frog" + why it actually does work
The importance of having a CRM for your business and why it isn't just for those working in corporate jobs
How sketching out the workflow for a potential client helps fills in the blanks to determine were they need automation and how you can help them the most
Determining where it's most effective for you to get help and start there.
Outsourcing happens so that you can take the task off your plate and allow your business to move forward.
I’m so excited for you to listen to today’s episode and to hear all about the little changes you make so that your business runs smoother and with less stress! DM over on instagram to tell me all about it!
Kate talked a lot about the benefits of outsourcing admin tasks in your business. Outsourcing these tasks in particular have the potential to create a huge impact when you allow yourself not have to do it all yourself.
So today I want you to take a look at your business and find one thing that you could outsource. Just one. Nothing crazy. And then I want you to go find someone that can help you with that in your budget.
Because there are people out their waiting to help you with this thing! Help yourself and them by outsourcing.
