He shares his experience of being overwhelmed by creating systems independently and explains how having an assistant can free up time and headspace to focus on high-value work.
Steve emphasizes that hiring an assistant early on or supporting your existing team with an assistant can increase efficiency, cost savings, and the ability to delegate tasks effectively. He highlights the benefits of having someone dedicated to creating systems and automations, allowing key team members to think strategically and improve processes.
Overall, this episode provides valuable insights into the role of an assistant in systemizing your business and achieving success.
💡 Hiring an assistant early on can help alleviate the burden of creating systems and documentation. By offloading tasks to an assistant, entrepreneurs can free up time and headspace. They can then focus on more critical aspects of their business.
💡Creating systems before hiring an assistant can lead to overwhelm and inefficiency. It's important to prioritize tasks and focus on the most critical aspects of the business before diving into systemization.
💡 Hiring an assistant specifically for systemization and documentation can be highly beneficial. This dedicated role allows for creating efficient systems, documentation, and automation, which can ultimately protect the business and elevate the existing team.
💡Over-tasked teams often lack the time and energy to think about improving their work or finding more efficient ways of doing things. Hiring an assistant to support the team in systemization and optimization can provide the headspace for high-value work and innovation.
💡 The return on investment of hiring an entry-level assistant to help with systems is significant. While there may be a lag before seeing the benefits, freeing up team members to focus on high-value work and efficiency can ultimately increase profits in the long run.
