If the idea of knowing the numbers in your business makes your stomach leap, this one’s for you!


I know, I know - numbers!

But those little digits are what will ultimately help you create the life you’re dreaming of, and help you make wise decisions on your way there.

What Your Genius Zone Is, and How to Spend More Time There

 

Your ‘Genius Zone’ sounds like a nice place to be, right?


The ‘Zone of Genius’ is a term initially coined by Gay Hendricks in his excellent book, The Big Leap, and refers to the place we’re in when we’re doing the work we love the most, that comes easily to us and makes us fly.

It also is where people respond most to what we do or create – the really juicy stuff that sets us apart from everyone else….

…and we all have one!

It’s a great place to work from, so I’m exploring what your genius zone is, how to...

If you thought fulfilment centres were only for big companies like Amazon, you’re missing a key way to grow your product or subscription box business – and give you more freedom.


Hands up if you *love* packing boxes?!

Okay, some of you organised folk (like me) may get a lot of satisfaction in packing up boxes and sending them out to your customers – but if you’re a solopreneur and the CEO of your small business, it’s really not the best use of your precious time.

How to Outsource to a Virtual Assistant (VA)

 

As your business grows, you’ll eventually hit a wall (if you haven’t already!) where you know you can’t keep doing everything yourself.

I know, you’d love to be Wonder Woman and keep control of all the spinning plates, but that’s not helping you move forward!

Once you’ve validated your business and it’s making money, smart outsourcing to a virtual assistant (or multiple VAs) will be the thing that really grows your income and business to the next level.
