When your business isn’t thriving or making you money consistently, it is so tempting to take another course on business strategy or. get sucked into your social media plan. And once it is making you money, it feels so much easier to just keep things going the way they are for fear that things will stop if you suddenly take a step back to get organized. Trust me. I have been there before too. 🙋🏼‍♀️

What if I told you that running your business doesn’t have to feel so draining? From on-boarding clients and scheduling, all the way to social media and planning out your next big offer, I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

Are you getting distracted by flashy business strategy courses, the 100 pre-made Instagram caption downloads, taking more coaching workshops and all the business freebies? Are you spending more time working on your business, rather than in it? Again, you’re not alone.

If you feel like you have all these ideas on how you can truly grow your small wellness business, but your execution is going at the speed of a 🐢

 

You need a clear systems in your business.

In this episode, I go over my 5 step process for creating an efficient business system that will help you:

  • get things done faster
  • reach more people
  • make more money
  • save time and energy
  • or really, help you achieve any goal you have for a specific activity or process in your business.

Why you need to create efficient systems to grow your business

You need a clear systems in your business.

* to keep you organized, efficient & allow you to get back to focusing on the areas of your business that light you up

* to help you see the big picture & how the pieces of your business should work in harmony instead of chaos

* to nurture productivity, based on your personal HD energy type instead of the push/force/hustle & grind

* to increase efficiency in your day-to-day biz tasks, so you have more time to be creative & do the work you’re passionate about

* to finally move forward in your business and amplify your impact & your purpose (& make that $$)

 

What is a business system?

A system is a procedure, process, method, or course of action designed to achieve a specific result.

It’s the ultimate structure that is designed to help your business flow, instead of force, push, stop, pause, rewind. Systems are great because they eliminate the “should’s” and replace everything with a clear roadmap of getting day-to-day tasks accomplished efficiently. This is key to freeing up your time so you can do the work you love and ditch the overwhelm & burnout treadmill for good.

A great system also gives you “stats” of what’s working, so you don’t have to waste extra energy, money, resources on areas that are already working for you and making you money or already pushing your business.

PLUS, you’ll no longer need to hold on to all these extra little details, therefore, freeing up more brain space to be creative and joyful in your business. But my favourite part is that a creative, well designed system will give you back more time. 👏🏻

Which frees you up to finally spend your most productive hours in your zone of genius and take serious action towards your big vision business goals.

Okay, but… aren’t systems for big businesses only?

First off you’re a big deal and don’t you let anyone forget it. But secondly, don’t you want to be a “big” business some day?

The best way to become the businesswoman, speaker, entrepreneur, Instagram influencer, famous nutritionist, fitness star is to start acting like her right now and trust me, future super successful you has bad ass systems to run her biz.

If you start designing systems that work in your individual business, for your energy type, for your end goals right away, you don’t have to struggle later on trying to play catch up, back track, or change how you run the ship. You’ll already have an amazing workflow in place which makes it so much easier to hire on team members, scale, automate, and grow your business down the road. Your systems may be shorter, smaller, less corporate-looking, but they will reward you over and over again by giving you back time.

BONUS: these systems and action plans will spill over into other areas of your life too, which makes everything more organized, and a lot less chaotic.

 

Welcome to your new way of doing business.

It’s not your fault you got caught up in following the shiny business courses and started avoiding all the tasks that took you forever to get done.

It happens to all of us, until we realize that there is a way to work productively every single day in our business without burning ourselves out in the process. It’s time to learn HOW to get all those “to-do” items off your sticky notes and into efficient systems, so that you can finally grow your dream business and fulfill your purpose.
