It’s Tuesday morning. You have an event to put on tonight, and you’re scrambling, even though you’ve done this before. Every event you host feels like a cobbled-together project, and each time you hope that no one notices.
You wrack your brain, trying to think of any last minute items that need to be included, promoted, or planned. Is everything ready? Is everything in place?
Unfortunately, you’re making it harder on yourself.
Business does not have to feel this way. Yet, if you’re resonating with the feeling of anxiety in the above story, you wouldn’t be alone. There are thousands of entrepreneurs just like you who feel stressed whenever they take action in their business, despite it being something they’ve done many times.
It’s not the first event.
It’s not the first proposal.
It’s not the first client.
Still, anxiety gets the best of you every time.
My dear, your system is down.
I was just like you. Totally overwhelmed by every little thing I was working on in my business. Even though I done each task multiple times. It felt like being on a hamster wheel.
You don’t have to live like that.
If you ever wonder why other entrepreneurs seem so happy, it may be because they have systematized their business. It runs like a fine clock, chiming predictably on the hour, telling them where to be and when. They’re not juggling mental checklists. They have a real checklist that keeps them on track.
And you can, too.
You’ve already written your systems — you’re just keeping them in your head. Let’s change that.
The Second Pillar of Business Scaling™ is Systems. Systems apply to anything in the business that is repetitive but needs some human intervention. An app can’t plan your next retreat — but a well-documented system can make it very easy for you to put it together like a Lego set (without the pieces to step on).An app can't plan your next retreat — but a well-documented system can make it very easy for you to put it together like a Lego set.

Start by brain dumping anything that you’ve done more than once in your business.
Next, break them down into the individual parts and tasks that turn the big chunk (like putting on an event) into small steps (like scheduling social media posts, finding guest speakers, and scheduling the Zoom room).
Finally, be vigilant in your business. I am certain that there are more opportunities for systems than you have thought of. Document them. Write them down. This is your chance to learn from yourself. A well-documented system is study-able.
I’ll say that again.
A well-documented system is study-able.
Imagine finding all the cracks in your business and fixing them so that your business runs even better, has higher conversions, and generates a greater income.
You can’t study what you don’t know. And if you’re mentally juggling, you’ll never have that big beautiful efficient business you’ve always dreamt of.
Let’s get started.
