Episode 2: Business Processes
Cohosts: Warrick and Michaela from ‘The Tradies Business Show’
In this series of Toolbox talks, I’m joined by our friends Warrick and Michaela from The Tradies Business Show, where we’re talking about Outsourcing. I asked them to join me on this series because they both formally ran a company called Tradies VA, which was a business that helped trade based organisations leverage the use of assistants, so that the business owners could free themselves up to take care of the more important areas of their businesses. Waz and Michaela both a wealth of knowledge in this field and I’m sure you’ll learn a bunch from what they have to say.
Episode 1 recap:
In episode 1, Waz, Michaela and I talk about the power of discovering what your business strengths are within your business, so you can spend your time doing what you’re good at and not all the other things that can be delegated. So often, we find ourselves wasting time in our own business, but doing things that others can do so much better. This is a great podcast that drives home the point that if you waste time doing what you’re not great at, you’re doing more damage than good.
In episode 2, we’re talking about developing business processes that can replace you.
Having business processes in place allows you the freedom of being able to step away from certain tasks, knowing that they’ll be done your way by someone else in your organisation. By documenting processes, you’re creating intellectual property, that;
- Empowers your staff to carry out tasks the way you want then carried out.
- Builds an asset into your company, so that it can potentially be acquired down the track.
- Free you up from tasks that hold you back form more important things.
- Means the business can operate without you.
This is a great podcast, so tune in, take note and TAKE ACTION! Coming up in following episodes: TSS025 – Building a power remote team You can reach Warrick and Michaela at Tradies Business Show
