Episode 99: Free Up Your Time with Systems—with Danielle McGinnis
If you’re spending too much time doing repetitive tasks and feel like you don’t have enough time to focus on getting business and serving your clients well, you likely have a systems problem.
Meaning, you don’t have automated systems in place, systems that can free you up to only do what only you can do.
Danielle McGinnis of Cutting Edge Operations is my systems person (aka, my online business manager). The systems that she has set up for me have given me back easily 3 hours of my time per week. Per week! (That’s 156 hours per year.)
In this week’s Craft of Consulting podcast, she shares what systems we use and how they can give you back your time.
Danielle McGinnis is a systems savant who makes my life easier through automation. In this episode, we talk about:
Defining what an online business manager is
Understanding what systems and automation are and the freedom consultants get from them
Giving clients better experiences through systems
Identifying what systems you need and what can be automated
Letting go of tasks that you don’t need to do
Finding a system that accomplishes the most tasks that you want to do instead of having multiple systems
Exploring the systems we use that automate tasks for getting and serving clients, including systems for customer relationship management (CRM), project management, graphics, social media management, and email marketing
Reducing friction in your processes so it is easy for your audience and clients to do what you want them to do
Setting up your systems
