Whether you’ve just started your business and feel overwhelmed or you’re growing to a point where you need support in order to keep up, having a  streamlined and efficient workflow can make all the difference. That’s why episode 95 of the Positively Living Podcast is about saving time and money by streamlining your workflow!

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Melissa Morris shares the importance of automating systems in your business to support both you and your client and she provides actionable steps you can take right now to streamline your workflows.

Melissa and I cover the following topics:

  • Using the D.I.S.C.O. framework to understand your workflows and pinpoint where to start streamlining them.
  • The number one area in your business to start implementing automation. 
  • Debunking the idea that automation stands in the way of a nurturing relationship between you and your client. 
  • The importance of intentionally using your VA to leverage your workflows, not create them every time. 
  • How to use your new process to create boundaries around what to expect, what is included in your work, and more importantly, what is NOT included. 

As a successful entrepreneur, when you implement these techniques, you’ll open up space to work on your business, not just in your business.
