3 Things We Learned From This Episode
Pay attention to processes (09:49- 11:14)
Every single thing we do has a process— from running a business to making a sandwich. Go into as much detail as you can when considering your processes. Even the most basic step is important.
Get everything in one place (14:46- 15:27)
When you’re just getting started in your business, try to have everything in one place. Use systems like Trello to put all your work, clients, and progress in one spot. This creates much-needed structure.
Hire a business consultant when you’re ready to scale (18:53- 19:24)
If you’re at the point in your business where you’re able to scale, it’s time to hire a consultant. This will allow you to step away while your business is taken care of.
There are so many moving pieces involved in building a business that it’s bound to get confusing at some point. As you grow, make sure you’re taking stock of everything you do. To take your business to new heights, you have to pay attention to what got you off the ground in the first place.
Brittany Dixon is a business consultant. After finding out she was pregnant with twins soon after starting a new job, Brittany decided to start her own company. Today, she is the owner of Brittany and Co. Consulting. Brittany strongly believes that building a great business requires great documenting of processes. She’s also adamant that the reason she has more time with her kids today is because of the consistent processes when she started her business.
