The first step in creating any process within your business is to take inventory of everything you do on a repetitive basis.
Without knowing WHAT you're working on that contributes to your business, you're never going to know which tasks can have a process or system built around them.
In this episode I go into detail about how you can take inventory in your own business in order to take the first step in creating systems and processes that create freedom.

I've seen and heard about a lot of struggles from entrepreneurs around how to actually create systems in their business, so I decided to take a step back and dissect just that: what is the #1 struggle most entrepreneurs face when it comes to creating systems?
When asked this question: When (and how) are you going to actually start documenting the steps that it takes you to complete something so you can create a process around it for your business?" I got a similar answer from several entrepreneurs: "The next time I work on that task, I will document the steps."
This is the #1 struggle that most entrepreneurs face when it comes to creating systems, and in this episode I identify the actual struggle they face, plus provide a solution you can use right now to help you start creating systems and processes in your business today.

What do we do when things don't happen as planned? We pivot. We stay flexible. We correct course. Because you can plan, prepare, try and predict all you want, but when it comes down to it, you’ll never know until you JUST START - and we're never going to get where we want to be unless we keep on going.

Want a single guide that lays out the step-by-step of an entrepreneur's journey? This is it.
Because after trying and failing and trying and failing, I know it's so much easier to have a guide than it is to make things up, or try 10 things before you find the one that works.
This is why I wrote and published my first book, The Fire Path: A Beginner's Guide to Growing Your Online Business: because I've failed at entrepreneurship before, and I have a lot of lessons learned that I know can help others on their own journey.
