So you left a VIP Day or wrapped up work with a Done-For-You service provider and you feel like you didn’t get the answers you were looking for… Or maybe the work you did only brought up more questions and concerns about your business and you feel like maybe your service provider didn’t do a great job...
I see this ALL. THE. TIME. The uncertainty when you have made tech decisions. Uncertainty when you know you need new tools to support your business, but you don’t know how to pick them. Overwhelm when you go down the Google rabbit hole, dedicating hours to research… and still not making a decision.
Now is the perfect time to reevaluate your offers. This is the first thing I’ve done with a lot of my clients. I ask: how do we best proceed through this point? We can’t just stop all operations. We have to find a way to move forward. So we’ve been reviewing all offers, products, and services. Why? Either to repackage them so that we can pivot effectively or to look at what isn’t working.
Hi everyone, Diane here. Lately, I’ve been talking about shifting into a mindset where asking for help and building your support resources is an investment in your business instead of a financial loss. And as I was talking to a lead today and we were throwing around acronyms like COO, CPA, OM, OBM, VA, Tech VA, EA, etc., it took us just 10 minutes to get on the same page about what these acronyms mean and what they do.
I was at a cocktail networking event last week, and as I was circulating and getting to know people, I came across a group talking about how they were scaling their operations. This was an exciting conversation – something I’m always thinking about for my clients and for myself. Who doesn’t want a business that can do more, grow more, and make more money?
Hi everyone, Diane here with your weekly business tip. I was chatting with a friend earlier this week, and somehow we started talking about business processes and what they actually do for your business. This was an interesting conversation because I always thought it was crystal clear why systems are imperative for the growth of your business and ultimately, your personal growth.
Hi guys, Diane here. Earlier this week I had a chat with a contact that I met while traveling abroad, and she told me that she had the amazing opportunity of living abroad and running her businesses remotely. We connected because she was feeling concerned about leaving her businesses behind and managing them remotely.
Some of you know I've been mixing business with pleasure and working/traveling in South Africa for the past month. I've spent the last ten days on safari, and the combination of nature and the un-pluggedness have given me the headspace to clear my mind, clarify strategies, and conceptualize new opportunities.
At one of my recent workshops, someone asked me if they should feel guilty about not having systems in place in their business already. A lot of the information I shared with them about what business owners get wrong about systems and why you really need them to grow, resonated deeply with them and was so logical and clear that they were dismayed to not already have them in place.
As a business owner, it can be very easy to be borderline obsessed with your team’s productivity and performance. You might question whether they are being productive enough...
