We’ve all heard it before. Automating processes and systems is vital for growing your business and creating more time in your day. The question is what should you be automating first?
The best place to start with automating or outsourcing your business is by passing along tasks take up a lot of time but don’t require executive decision making.
I’d suggest starting with content distribution.
Why content distribution?
Creating quality content is one of the most important parts of running your business and this is something I wouldn’t recommend outsourcing unless you’re working with an amazing copywriter that truly gets your brand. But distributing that content is another thing.
Think about it: You’ve spent hours writing your new blog post and you’re finally done. What if instead of now spending another hour adding it to your site, sharing it on social and optimizing SEO you could just send it to your VA and have them do all of that for you? How would that feel?
These are the things that if you start automating you can then focus on growth.

I want you to take back your Power. Find the head space to grow your business. And know that your power is always there for you to take.
In the OBM industry, it’s often said that we provide time savings to you. By doing the things you can’t or don’t know how to do. But let’s be honest, that’s not true!
Are we saving you time? Yes, of course, but it’s not because we are doing things you can’t do. You can figure out like to do absolutely anything! I know you can because you’re a smart, intelligent and determined woman!
The real value of an OBM and a VA isn’t the time saved, it’s the head space gained.
It’s allowing you to have the head space to focus on the opportunities that will grow your business. And create new opportunities for you and your business.
There’re plenty of things that you can figure out how to do. But they may not be the best use of your time. Having someone to support you with the day to day hustle will allow you to be more discerning on how you spend your time.
Making this clear to you, the difference between saving time and gaining head space is so important for me. Because even though time doesn’t stretch your head space is much more valuable.
When you hire someone to support you, you’re not giving your power away. You’re taking back the power to do what YOU know best.
Are you ready to focus on what you know best?
Do you ever feel like you’re doing it all alone? I know I did! Being an entrepreneur is a roller coaster ride. Filled with challenges and tech pot holes and bad sales day, and so much more. And some days you really just need a girlfriend that will hear you out and help you get cracking. One of the things that have helped me the most through these bad days has been masterminds. And you haven’t joined a mastermind then I have the one for you!
You must be asking yourself: what the hell is a mastermind?
A mastermind is basically a virtual posy for your business. Your own little group of girlfriends that are there to support you and help you grow your business. Face the challenges being an entrepreneur and change the world.
What would it feel like to you if whenever you had a business hiccup that you needed to talk through you had a group of trusted friends that you could turn to for help, support and most importantly answers?
It would be amazing right?!
I’ve been a part of some amazing masterminds in the past. So when I started to look at new ways to serve you amazing ladies, I knew this was something that I wanted to do for you.
So if you’re ready to start Owning your Power with other amazing ladies at your back then take a look at my new Business Building Mastermind. We are getting started in September and right now there are only 12 spots open. So don’t waste any more time and take a look at it here. Can’t wait to see you there!
If you know a little bit about me you might know that I studied and worked as a web designer for many years. But after I left my corporate job I stopped doing web design.
Why did I stop? It stopped feeling like it was of service to my clients.
Now don’t get me wrong. Website Design is a wonderful and complicated beast. And it’s undoubtedly necessary for growing your business, just ask the amazing Rachael Kay Albers, she knows her stuff!
But after years of working at an agency where all we did was design site, I was tired of watching client, after client, create websites that fell flat on their faces, that didn’t have any real strategy behind them and that ultimately didn’t create any value for the client or their company, I was done!
The truth is you might not need a professionally designed website just yet.
Before you go and hire a web designer and spend thousands on creating a top notch professional website, ask yourself:
- Do you know what you want to sell and to who?
- Have you defined your brand and brand messaging?
- Do you have an idea of the path or funnel your clients will follow to buy from you?
If you don’t have these points figured out yet it’s definitely too early to hire a web designer. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get an extra pair of hands to help you out.
I know that looking at those three bullet points above can be daunting and you can’t even begin to figure out how to create a funnel for your business. But it doesn’t need to be scary! The trick is to chop these tasks down into manageable bite size actions and create a plan for getting them done!
Why don’t I do web design? Because I much rather help you get all the pieces of your business running smoothly. So that you can grow with confidence!
Are you ready to grow your business and change the world? If you’re looking for someone to help you break down these big tasks and get them done with you then let’s chat.
You have real POWER within you! As a human being on this earth, I know that you have the power to shape your world and the reality around you. We all do.
If you knew you could change the world how would you change it? How would you use your power?
Because you can! You can change the world, shape your reality and make a difference.
The way you lead your life will make a difference in the way the people around you see the world. You’ll shape their views of what is possible and realistic. You’ll show them just how much impact one person can have in the world and that will create a ripple effect that will make a real difference.
So take a deep breath and tell me:
How are you changing the world?
Have you ever had a dream that felt just out of reach?
Maybe because it’s too big, too scary, or just too hard.
I know just the feeling. I’ve been there too. But today’s post isn’t about delayed dreams. Today is about taking that big scary dream from our heart and bringing it into reality.
For years I have dreamed of road tripping across Europe. No real destination or time restraint. Just traveling and exploring this beautiful continent that I live in.
And for years I had delayed this dream.
But not anymore!
The time for delays is over. We took the plunge and dove head first into planning and making this dream happen. There were plenty of times when I doubted we’d ever get there, but now it’s official!
Our trip starts in 3 short months! And although there are still a million things to plan and prepare, I couldn’t be more excited!
I’ll still be working while I travel and my husband will be looking for odd jobs while trying to start his own business (send him some love over at talkyourmind.com)
In the meantime, I’d love to hear from you. What’s a big dream you’ve been delaying? And if you’ve ever gone on a road trip let me know your best tips and tricks.
