I knowww Systems & Processes sounds so boring!
Guess what isn’t boring? Money. Peace. Success.
I’m here to bring the sexy to Systems & Processes.
Get them right…
Money + Peace = SEXY AS HELL SUCCESS!
Now I have your attention lets talk…
The systems and processes within your business are essentially how it works. The literal behind the scenes workings of what you do. How you get customers to see you, how you get them in, how you get them to buy, how you get them to come back. So as you can see its a pretty big and important topic.
In order to bring the sexy I have a MONTH planned for you guys.
What we are going to be talking about…
Check lists, Run throughs, planning, time tables, money & where to put it, social media….
AND LOTS MORE
*TOP TIP TUESDAY*
Every Tuesday I will share with you one of my top tips for effective systems & processes over on our instagram page.
*’THE PREP LIFE’ WORKSHOP*
Tuesday 4th May 4:30pm – Live on Instagram
This month we replace pre recorded content with our very first WORKSHOP! The Prep Life workshop will give a deep dive into how exactly I prep my systems and processes within my business. What templates and structures I use, how I’ve simplified my admin time, where and how I spend my time and how I decide and plan social media! It’s a juicy one, so bring your notebooks. The best part is, it’s being held as an Instagram LIVE so you will have opportunities the entire way through to ask questions and of course it will be saved too.
*’MONEY SYSTEMS’ WORKSHOP*
with guest Lauren Cope of Cope & Associates Accountancy & Financial Planning
Tuesday 11th May 4:30pm – Live on Instagram
This is a biggie!!! Lauren is amazing, she is my personal accountant for both businesses and has helped me more than I can tell you with finances. Ive mentioned her before, but, my business profits have increased hugely since working with her as a byproduct of her knowledge; she teaches me, I make more educated decisions. Ive hired in Lauren for an hours consulting with the club and I think you will find so much value in this. Her and I together will talk on a live; me from the viewpoint of a working business owner growing profits and finances & Lauren from the viewpoint of someone who know the ins and out of the rules, regulations and laws whilst also being a business owner. She will share her top tips on keeping your business in profit and talk about the biggest mistakes she sees businesses make. I absolutely cannot wait, make sure you clear time in your diary for this!
*LIVE CONSULTING HOUR*
Tuesday 25th May 4:30pm – Live on Instagram
Not forgetting, of course, our live consulting hour where I will pop on with you guys to answer any and all of your questions. You can ask them through the month via DM as they pop into your head or live on Instagram… either way, this month, we will have so much to talk about.
OK, let’s talk boundaries for a second.
With this month being about systems and processes I wanted to take the opportunity of the Mindfulness section to bring it back to you. Having the perfect systems all in place bringing money in is great, but are you over doing it? Are you giving your time to something you don’t enjoy? Are you pushing yourself for the wrong reasons?
This month I just want to encourage you to think practically about what your systems & processes mean to you.
We cannot have true success without fulfilment.
Fulfilment doesn’t just come form work.
Now personally I find work very fulfilling, I love what I do and find purpose in my work… but holy shit thats not ALL of me.
The other part of me loves weekends away with hubs, loves spending as much time in or around the ocean as possible, needs time to relax and read (for pleasure not for work), likes pretending to grow things in the garden (i.e. planting with the best intentions and then forgetting they exist.)
Let me tell you something that I did last month (April) that I would have NEVER… AND I MEAN NEVER allowed myself to do, or to be frank been able to be before… The 2 weekends before reopening (skin business 12th April) I went away. And I mean, away, off grid, in a caravan (don’t judge, I love a little caravan holls) with hubs and the dog. I walked more steps on the beach than Id ever done in my life and swam in the sea most days.
I watched others getting beyond stressed online, spending every day preparing for reopening, re booking, moaning, stressing and I am not judging at all, believe me thats been me every other time this has happened.
But a few months ago I decided to take responsibility for everything that wasn’t fully fulfilling me in work and changed it. Every single system was sorted out AHEAD OF TIME! I sat for hours planning every interaction that would happen with clients and put processes in place to make them as easy as I could.
There was a time where between Emails & DMs id be answering over 100 messages a week easily… Ive gotten this down to 5-10 max.
How? Because I decided that my boundaries were important!
Why? So that when I have the opportunity to go away for the weekend I can now say ‘FUCK IT’ and go.
I work hard enough to allow myself this! I deserve this! AND SO DO YOU! Its ok to recognise that! You deserve it! You don’t have to be a slave to the job! Fucking enjoy your life AND run the business! Why the hell not?!
Systems & processes guys… Systems & processes!
Give your customers the information BEFORE they even ask you for it… and they won’t have to ask at all! The hours you save are just incredible.
So, I ask you again… what are your boundaries? Set them! Decide what they are and don’t just hope your customers listen.
IMPLEMENT them into your business so that they have no option but to listen.
TALK TO YOURSELF! and to me for that matter! If you’re struggling with this DM me… I can help.
Your mind is more important than your business.
Without it, fulfilment is just another dream!
