Steve talks about the current AI and automation techniques available, the lure of new applications and technology, and how they can distract you from getting your work done, getting your clients served and making your business successful. Your business still needs people and systems to function effectively.
💡 Despite the opportunities that automation can offer, many small businesses do not need to sacrifice the time needed in integration to the detriment of their core business.
💡 Delegation and systems are the true keys to freeing you from the day-to-day tasks involved in running your business.
💡A Unified Operations System doesn’t just detail the tasks you do but includes hiring, training, communication and improvement functions.
💡 The number of apps needed for systemisation is fewer than you would think. And there are dedicated sites and resources for hiring talented remote workers.
💡 A structured, streamlined business has a massive advantage over its more chaotic counterparts regarding efficiency and staff retention.
6:11 – 💬 ‘The formula I've developed will help you to effectively create systems to avoid feeling stuck in your business and stop wasting time delegating and managing work that doesn’t hit the standards you expect or want.’
11:03 –💬 ‘There’s access to an abundance of super affordable, incredibly powerful apps, technology, and platforms we can utilise. The challenge is utilising the right ones in the right way without getting completely overwhelmed and attracted by the shiny pennies.’
16:33 – 💬 ‘Systemising your business makes it easier for your staff to perform at a higher level because they don’t have to reinvent the wheel at every step.’
