Steve begins his series by taking you through the methods he has developed over the past 20 years in systemising his businesses by explaining the nature of a Unified Operations System and how you can make a plan to drive your business toward success while freeing your own time.
💡 The first step is to detail your high-value work from your repetitive work that can be automated and delegated, how complicated that systemisation will be, and the benefits its completion will achieve.
💡 When you hit obstacles, you may question the value of systems or the importance of yourself in that process. Clients value results, not your attention.
💡 Use an app like Toggl or Harvest or a simple spreadsheet to identify time-consuming tasks that could benefit from automation.
1:11 – 💬 ‘I want to give you more detail on this podcast, more value on and more depth than you would ever imagine to get from a podcast, the sort of stuff you would expect to get in a great book.’
5:15 – 💬 ‘If you’ve got something tangible or some quantifiable number to hang on that the outcome of you getting that system nailed, it’s much more likely that you’ll see it through.’
11:19 – 💬 ‘There’s no point in waiting and waiting until you think you have all the knowledge. Practice is how you improve in delegation. It’s how you improve in systems creation.’
ABOUT THE HOST
Steve was a slave to his business, but when he moved to Sweden in 2015, he was forced to change how he worked. He switched to running his businesses remotely. After totally nailing this concept, he spent his time helping other small business owners do the same. Steve’s been investing in property since 2002, has a degree in Computing, and worked as a doctor in the NHS before quitting to focus full-time on sharing his systems and outsourcing Methodology with the world. He now lives in Sweden and runs his UK-based businesses remotely with the help of his team of Filipino and UK-based Virtual Assistants.
