What’s In This Episode:
What are “systems” anyway? To Jill, it means organizing what you need to do in a process that’s easily replicable. And, Brad adds, they should happen without you touching them.
“The very best systems are actually automation.” – Brad
Jill has systems has for onboarding leaders for her Founding Exchanges while Brad has one for his invoicing – there’s even a system for how these podcasts get published. Systems are useful because they get things off of your plate, and they get done in a way that the quality is good (and if they’re not good, then you know something isn’t being followed or that something needs to change in the system).
“A system has to be functioning.” – Jill
Systems can just be a checklist, a Google doc, a video… whatever is the most helpful to you and your team. But systems are great because it leads to more consistent performance and decreases the need for you, as the business owner, to check up all the time. Plus, the more you get into it, the more fun it is. And it frees up your time, which is something every business owner can appreciate. Also, if someone quits, systems make it so much easier to transition.
What “systems” do you have in your business – and if you don’t have them, how can you get started? Listen in!»
