How to use an SOP for your pet sitting business

Episode 295: How To Use an SOP for Your Pet Sitting Business

Does the thought of creating an SOP for your pet sitting business leave you feeling overwhelmed? Or have you hired an office manager but had that completely blow up in your face due to the lack of an SOP? Or even worse, take the route of starting to create one, just to end up with an unfinished mess of documents that serve the business no purpose.

While it may sound intimidating, an SOP will make everything run much smoother.

SOP For Your Pet Sitting Business

An SOP is a Standard Operating Procedure that is essential for making sure all of your operations are carried out in a consistent and efficient manner.  By having an SOP in place, everyone on your team will be following the same procedures and guidelines. This week I am helping understand the process of creating and executing this document step by step.

Biggest Takeaways

For a business owner, being able to delegate means you are able to work on your business rather than in your business. But without an SOP you cannot delegate to your team. With the right steps, creating an SOP for your pet sitting business will establish a cohesive understanding for all staff members.

How you create your SOP will be determined by certain criteria:

  • What is the goal of an SOP?
  • What platform will you use to execute this document?
  • How will you implement it?
  • What steps do you need to include?

A fluid, changeable document that will evolve with your business and define duties and roles, will establish a smooth process for staff, clients, and business owners alike.

Recommendations

  • Mastermind members have access to premium recommendations when it comes to creating an SOP for their pet sitting business. They have the support of fellow members while also gaining knowledge and advice from experts who have been in this industry for many years. It’s a community worth checking out.
  • Jumpers have exclusive insight into how to execute their business processes in a way that gains them, clients and employees. I work with many business owners one on one to achieve goals and solve problems that have been holding them back from growing. I offer a free 20-minute call to get to know you and your business. I’ll lead you in the right direction and see if the Jumper community is the right fit for you.

Episode 294: 4 horrendous mistakes many pet owners make with their CPA

Episode 294: 4 Horrendous Mistakes Many Pet Business Owners Make With Their CPA

If I asked you today, “how do your books look?” or “did you have any big surprises from your taxes?” would either of those questions confuse you? Scare you? Leave you feeling a bit unsure? That might sound invasive, but to evaluate your business, you have to be in the know of these aspects. You are not alone if you find this area tough to evaluate, but there is someone who can help you manage it all… your CPA.

Owning a pet business can be extremely rewarding, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility. Keeping good books being one of them. One of the most important aspects of running a pet business is making sure you have a good relationship with your CPA. However, many business owners make these mistakes every year, which can damage this relationship and their business.

I know tax season may have come to an end, but it actually is perfect timing for you to meet with your CPA. Or maybe you have your extension until October. Either way, in this episode I will encourage you to talk with your CPA to avoid these 4 horrendous mistakes too many business owners are making.

Biggest Takeaways

I know some business owners are paralyzed in fear when it comes to their finances, I get it. However, you need someone, the right someone, to be in your corner to answer all the questions that you need to know to ensure your business, your finances, and your livelihood are taken care of. A business owner should ensure they are taken care of all around.

  • How often do you speak with your CPA?
  • Have you ever been surprised by a big tax bill?
  • Do you know what is a right off?
  • What options do you have for incentives for your staff?
  • What about SCorp Vs LLC?

There are 4 huge mistakes being made when thinking about the questions above, and I do not want to see you repeat any of them. There are ways to avoid them and confirm your business continues on the right path.

Recommendations

  • Mastermind just welcomed a large group of new (and old) jumpers into the community. Here all of their HR questions will be answered with accountability partners to keep them on track.

The Single Most Important Question You Need To Ask Yourself About Your Staff

Episode 291: The Single Most Important Question You Need To Ask Yourself About Your Staff

The Single Most Important Question You Need To Ask Yourself About Your Staff


Take a moment with me if you will and think about your staff.

Do you have a rockstar staff member? Someone who is your number one, most reliable member? And what would your business look like if everyone on the team was just like this rockstar?

What about your staff workload? Is it spread equally across the board, or do some members receive more work than others because of their ability?

Evaluating your staff members are an important aspect of moving your business forward. If you are done being a helicopter CEO and ready to step out of the business, there is one very important question you need to be asking yourself about your staff.

And this week, I am here to ask that question.

Biggest Takeaways

The old saying goes “You are only as strong as your weakest link” but I see more often than not, putting up with the weakest link of your company because the abundance of staff is not there. Does this sound familiar?

  • Are you having trouble of letting go “bad seeds” out of fear of not having enough staff?
  • You only want to hire when you have the work
  • You are having trouble getting out of the field and focusing on business rather than the work
  • The fear of too many employees holds you hostage to mediocre relationships with your staff members

Evaluating your staff and asking the important questions can and will get you to a place of abundance that allows you to become the CEO you desire.

Recommendations

It is not too late to jump into my FREE hiring group that has been going on this week. Yes, it started Monday, but all the good information is there for you to get caught up on. The live events are recorded and will be there to watch until Friday, May 20th. I filled the group with the most useful information you will need when it comes to hiring and building up your team members, answering probably all the questions you were thinking.

Taking A Stand, Trolls, & Leaving Your Business For 6 Months..... Personal Stories With Receipts!

Episode 289 Taking A Stand, Trolls, & Leaving Your Business For 6 Months….. Personal Stories With Receipts!

Episode 289:Taking A Stand, Trolls, & Leaving Your Business For 6 Months..... Personal Stories With Receipts!


They say to not believe everything you read online, but what would it look like if you did?

Because there are many out there online spreading bad info and giving out bad advice. They are spewing slander and stating there is no way you can accomplish the big goals of yours. Tearing you down, because.. how does the saying go? “misery loves company”

If you are in the crossfire of this negativity online, it is time to evaluate who you are hanging out with. Then get out of this mindset.

Because, as I have stated before, change is happening. And now is the time to really look at your business and evaluate who’s working with you or against you. Time to accomplish the big goals of yours.

This week I am telling you success stories of my clients who are taking a stand and thriving in their business without even being there.

How to dismiss the negativity and trolls out there, and stand firm within your business.

How to know, it is all possible.

Biggest Takeaways

“If you don’t stand for something, you fall for everything.” (Alexander Hamilton)

  • Sometimes taking a stand is doing it differently (especially against trolls). My clients are learning how to achieve business, hire employees and successfully sustain their business while not even being there.
  • But don’t just take my word for it, listen to the success stories I have to share with you.
  • Then watch who you are surrounding yourself with, spending your time with. The groups you are in, are they teaching you or adding negativity? Are you finding too many trolls creating negative space and no leader to around to control it? I’ll tell you how that is impactful to your business. And why you might want to change it.
  • Lastly, I will always be real with you. I will tell you my thoughts, when I feel my programs are not for you, as well as bring in an expert if I do not know the answer.

Recommendations

  • Ready to learn how to do it differently? This FREE group is for you! It begins May 16th and runs through May 20th. Join the FREE group
  • Message me. I say this often right, but I mean it. I will personally answer you and lead you in the right direction of how I think I can help you. Bella@jumpconsulting dot net

3 of the biggest mistakes pet business make during onboarding and hiring

Episode 288: 3 Of The Biggest Mistakes Pet Businesses Make During Onboarding And Training

3 of the biggest mistakes pet businesses make during onboarding and training


Are you trying desperately to hire? Do you feel like you can’t find anyone? Does no one apply? Follows through? Ghosts you? Or quits right after they start?

These problems are running rampant in the industry and it is probably because of one of these three things:

Too long of an onboarding process, too much back and forth with new employees, and needing help with the probationary period.

This week I am diving into all these mistakes and what you should do to avoid them.

Biggest Takeaways

These mistakes are common mistakes I am seeing business owners making whenever they are bringing on new hires.

  • Too long of an onboarding process: You want to make sure your employees are well-equipped to do their job and feel comfortable with the company’s culture. But too much information is an overload. You want to keep it short sweet and to the point.
  • Too much back and forth: Yay for new employees! But sometimes too much back and forth can be just as overwhelming as the long process.
  • Probationary period: Is yours working? Knowing how long and when to measure performance will create a smooth onboarding process for everyone.

bella@jumpconsulting.net

Recommendations

  • Did you take your eye off of marketing to focus on hiring? Let’s call that a 4th mistake! Your marketing should also be attracting the right employees to work for you. DM me today and ask how Better Marketing With Bella has helped many, many clients not only land more business but multiple employees!

Episode 287 Secure Your Support System For The Upcoming Pet Business Changes

Episode 287: Secure Your Support System For The Upcoming Pet Business Changes

As summer approaches, trends in the pet business world are getting ready for some big changes. Business, if it hasn’t already, will start booming, and while that may be so exciting are you ready for it? Does your business have a solid foundation with a good marketing strategy in place?

With the rising of inflation, people are spending their money where they feel comfortable, not only out of necessity. What is making your business stand out? If you are comfortable where you at, and think everything is great, just know things are about to shake up, and the time to tighten up is now.

This week I am sharing how I see the trends changing this summer and what you and your business can do to prepare for it. I am ready to help you succeed.

Biggest Takeaway

With upcoming changes, do you fully understand how these are going to affect your business?

You should ensure you have a supportive community rallying around you and your business in success and in help.

Never take your eye off one aspect, but in turn, make sure you are controlling all parts so that one element doesn’t end up lacking. If you think you can lay off your marketing right now because business is so busy and you want to focus on time on hiring. Then in no time, you will find yourself with a marketing problem.

These are things to consider now, as we are facing change on the horizon. You need to ask yourself, is your business prepared for where it is heading?

Recommendations

  • Are you looking for a new beginning? Stuck in a place you just do not know how to get out of no matter which way you turn? Then let’s talk. I want to hear from you and about what is going on in your business. Let me know how I can help you succeed! Book a 20 minute call with me and let’s start that new beginning you’re searching for. If spending a day with me in your home town or in mine (in beautiful Phoenix, AZ!) then an in-person intensive is exactly what you are looking for. 8 hours of hard work, getting down and dirty in the business, solving some of your hardest business needs.
  • Doors for Better Marketing With Bella are closing soon, so now is the time to get involved. 6 months of content creating and marketing set for you and your business. I can go on and on but the work speaks for itself and my clients are thriving in their businesses right now. So now is the time before the doors close for 2022.

If you have been following along our theme of social media, you know just how important of a role it plays in your business. I think it is safe to say that at one point or another you have cyberstalker companies to learn more about them. Well, consumers are doing the same to your business too.

If you haven’t learned by now, social media is breaking or making goals you set for your business.

But utilizing social media is more than just posting right? Yet time and time again I see businesses with the utmost potential falling short when it comes to utilizing it. This week I address three types of goals that you might be working on that will be more easily achieved if you also leverage your social media.

Biggest Takeaways

Business owners who are leveraging how much social media can boost their business understand it involves much more than just posting and hoping for likes.

But conveying your worth to those who stop by.

Looking for employees?

Yes, potential employees will look at your social media and see if YOU are the right fit for them. Why would they want to work there, how would they fit in?

Wanting to raise your rates?

YUP! Your brand that your portray on your social media needs to reflect the worth of the prices you are raising! Your strategy online says a lot about your value.

Learn how to scale back business?

Well, there are two problems to be solved here, and guys I am here to help teach you this system.

Recommendations:

  • Knowing the right things to post and when to post is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to utilizing your social media correctly.

Episode 282: How To Be A Good Business Leader And Juggle Parenting Duties: Spring Break Edition


 
 
 
 
 

Balancing parent life while running a business is super easy…. said no one ever!!

In reality, if you are a parent, you know how HARD it really is and all the struggles you have to go through to make it work. The mom/dad guilt of not spending enough time or attention on your child is apparent when you are giving your business the focus it needs. But the stress of your work to-do list can weigh you down when you are away from your business too.

So how do you find that balance? This week I am rocking the podcast during my daughter’s spring break to bring you all my tips on achieving running your business while parenting.

Biggest Takeaways

Running your business is your full-time job, but so are your children. Finding a balance that gives both aspects your full attention is what we, as parents, seek the most. But saying you want that balance seems easier than actually achieving it.  Take some of my tips and help find that balance you are looking for:

  • Schedule. Schedule time each week that is set aside just for your family. Maybe after work, you put your phone away and give your kid your undivided attention to play and spend that time together.
  • Say no. I know, crazy right? But say no to some things! If you do not want to have meetings or calls on certain days, say no, and schedule for a day when you are available. Better yet, have it kicked over to one of your assistants and have them schedule it on a day that works best for you.
  • Turn off. When you have the time for your child, turn business off. This ensures they know they have 100% of your attention. Guys, we only get 18 summers with them, we need to make sure they know how important that time together is.

I have a few more really helpful tips to get you to the work-life balance you are needing in your life right now. Parent to parent, this stuff really works.

Recommendations:

  • If less time working in the business is what you are looking for, join the Mastermind group so I can assist you and your business achieve your biggest goals.
  • Email me at bella@jumpconsulting.net to chat about finding that balance between parent life and running your business. I am here to help you and show you how possible it is.
  • Time to join the Better Marketing With Bell Waitlist is coming to an end. Soon we will be welcoming new members to the group, gearing up to help them with all their business content needs. If that is something you are interested in, jump on the list today.

Are you in a toxic relatioship with your business?


 
 
 

If someone were to ask you today “Have you ever been in a toxic relationship?” what would be the first thing to come to mind?

When we think of a toxic relationship, we often think of it as either a romantic relationship or even a friendship. More times than not, you wouldn’t think of the relationship you have with your business.

8 considerations to make your website a selling machine

Episode 280: 8 Considerations To Make Your Website A Selling Machine

What do you think pet parents want to see when they go to your website?

Do they want to feel like they are being sold? Talked at? Or trying to figure out how they might fit INTO your company?

Do you think they might feel overwhelmed, not knowing if you are the right fit for skill or money?

All of these are probably true and how you present yourself on your website will make or break your bounce rate.

(Bounce rate: How long someone stays on your site until the “bounce” off going to look elsewhere to solve their problem)

Recently I got a DM from someone who was going to be updating their website asking, “So what’s important on a website these days??”

Truth is, there is a lot to consider. Unfortunately, most business owners are so close to their business, it is often hard to get the 30K view and put themselves in their potential client’s shoes…

Biggest Takeaways

If your website is the first thing potential clients are seeing about you, then you need to draw them in.  You need to make them say, “Yes, I want to work with them!”

I started off doing this as a 7 point podcast but by the time I got to the end, it turned into 8. I was on a roll.

Episode 278: #1 Way to Increase Your Sales That Everyone Can Do

# 1 way to increase your sales that everyone can do

I’ve heard from many of you… I don’t like answering the phone. I don’t like being put on the spot. I don’t like selling. I don’t like talking about price. All of this is stinkin’ thinking that is severely limiting your ability to grow your business.

People literally make the decision to call and speak to a company. They put their environment on mute so they can ring you and potentially speak to you. If they are doing this, they have most likely already checked you out. They have seen your website, your social… and now, they just need a bit of reassurance. They are calling you for this reassurance and you are giving them a L for LOSING instead of a W for WINNING by not answering.

This is the equivalent of walking into a store and needing help and having no associates to speak to. Or walking up to one to ask them a question and them just walking away from you. Not only is it rude, but it is frusterating. Then, you are expected to check yourself out. Can you imagine if that wasn’t Walmart and it was Nordstroms?

The horror.

I know the idea of phone calls seems so ancient. We mostly communicate through email, text, and social media messaging. But what if I told you that the old-fashioned telephone has even more persuasion and would land you more new clients? Would you be willing to answer it more often?

If you are a business that has your phone number listed on google and on your website, then you need to be answering the phones. But many of you are not.

Why?

This week I went on a mission to find out what is going on out there and made 10 phone calls to 10 different companies in the Phoenix and Dallas area. The results were astounding.

Biggest Takeaways

As business owners, we are concerned with marketing, advertising and finding ways we can build up our client roster and in turn, create more sales. We know how important client relationships are, but we are forgetting to connect with potential clients. That connection begins with.. wait for it.. a phone call!

If you answer the phone, you will land more sales. Especially because your competition isn’t doing it

Show Highlights

  • Making a connection [1:24]
  • Answer the phone [3:27]
  • Save the sale [7:45]

Episode 275: ?3 Disruptive Ways To Respond To Inquiries To Get Results

Episode 275: 3 Disruptive Ways To Respond To Inquiries To Get Results

Episode 275: ?3 Disruptive Ways To Respond To Inquiries To Get Results

Think about it from their shoes… when you go out looking for a service and the first person you contact responds with “Thanks for your inquiry. We will get back to you within 24 – 48hrs”, do you just sit back and wait? Or do you keep looking for other options because you have a problem that needs to be solved and now is the time you have to solve it? Chances are you keep looking, right?

Don’t be the business that takes their time and does not show they want to solve your problems. Right now is the time to step up and actually be the solution and in this week’s Podcast, I am going to show you 3 different ways you can solve a client’s problem, show you care, and maybe even upsell them as fast as possible! You are going to want to listen in on this one.

Biggest Takeaways

As the market becomes more and more volatile, it becomes more and more important to really step out there and know how to respond to prospects and lockdown leads. There is a common thing most of us do with how we allow people to contact us for services and I will tell you it can be utilized and used correctly… if you know how.

Respond to Inquiries

How do you respond to inquiries? Do you only use email? What if I told you this can be wasting time? The amount of time you spend just responding to their first question might just be what gets them to stay or not. using the different forms of contact available can create an opportunity to assist them right as they need you to. Not the next day when they are busy at work and already spoke to X amount of people… am I right?

Personal Connection

Once they are responding back to you, building a personal connection is vital! This does not only help you truly solve their problem but it will create trust in you and your business to provide the best services you can without having to “sell yourself”. Contact them in a way that shows you did stop to think about what they need and how you can help, making it about them and their pet instead of about you and your business.

Show Highlights

  • How do you respond  [6.14]
  • How to land the client as quickly as possible [12.07]
  • Different forms of contact that show you care [18.55]

Episode 251: How To Decrease Turnover and Create Raving Employees

 

In this week’s Podcast, Bella is going to tell you the difference between what happens when you have a streamlined onboarding process compared to being unprepared and wigging it.

She is going to teach you why the onboarding process alone has the biggest impact on your turnover rate and employee retention.

 

Biggest Takeaways You Don’t Want To Miss

Having a Standard Onboarding Process Can Set You Aside from Other Employers

It’s commonly underappreciated to have a concise onboarding process. However… This is actually the most vital part about retaining employees, and weeding out the applicants you’re not looking for.

Being Prepared Can Be the Key to Finding that Superstar Employee

“Employees thrive on clear expectations”, New employees want to do good work and It is our job as business owners to set them up for success. Being prepared and systematized with your onboarding processes, training methods, and SOPs will enable them for success.

The Value of an Employee vs the Value of a Client

How often do you compare the revenue an employee brings in compared to a client? This is a huge thing that a lot of business owners don’t think about. Finding the balance between losing or gaining clients and employees is vital.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Real-Life Examples of Things Pet Based Business Owners Say and Do When It Comes to Employees [7:28]
  • Why you’ll be needing to onboard employees in record time very soon and how you can be ready [10:10]
  • Exactly what NOT to do in the onboarding process [10:45]

Steve Dotto is a tech geek, entrepreneur, and business owner. He is the founder of Dotto Tech, which he has grown into a successful, self-sustaining business.

Episode 180: How The 90/10 Rule Can Get Your Dog Walking Business Back On Track

How the 90/10 Rule Can Get Your Dog Walking Business Back On Track

Do you feel like content marketing is taking over your business? Like you have to consistently be posting on every social media platform possible and creating all the content you can in order to properly market and grow your business?

Don’t stress!

Today, I brought on Andrew and Pete to tell you how the 90/10 rule can get your dog walking business back on track!

Dog Walking Business

Andrew and Pete, international keynote speakers, authors and YouTubers, are the multi award winning fun business duo who help small business owners scale their business so they can stop swapping time for money.

Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

If you try to post on all aspects of content marketing then you are doing none of them remarkably well. Instead, pick one aspect of marketing and do that one thing remarkably well. In doing so, you will be known for that aspect and will no longer be wasting your time on the other platforms that aren’t performing well for you. Follow your data, find out what works best for you and your business and spend 90% of your time there and 10% experimenting elsewhere.

In following the 90/10 rule, you are guaranteed to get your dog walking business back on track.

Episode 179: 2020 Predictions in Your Pet Business

As a coach in the Pet Industry, I have the opportunity to work with pet businesses from all over the world at all different stages of their business. Due to this, I’m able to see trends that spread from the starter businesses to the six-figure businesses and identify what trends are being used to help their business growth and what’s simply not working. Thus, every year I write my yearly predictions leading me to the 2020 predictions in your pet business.

2020 Predictions

In order to excel in your business, you need to know the 2020 predictions for your pet business. With businesses such as Rover and Wag not going anywhere, the sooner you’re able to adapt, the better.

Episode 178: How to Get Your Pet Business in the Media

We talk a lot about social media presence and making your business known on the media. However, we don’t often get the chance to talk about how to get your pet business in the media such as newspapers, magazines or even on TV.

To teach us how to get in the media I’ve brought on Rachel Spencer, a journalist, and blogger for the Pet Industry who helps pet businesses create content and promote their work in the media. 

Pet Business in Media

Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

When pet businesses are everywhere and companies like Rover and Wag are soaring with popularity, getting your business out there and validated as credible, has never been more important. If someone is searching for a dog walker or pet sitter, you want to be the business that comes up on google. A good way to guarantee you show up first is by having media coverage. Thus, providing you with credibility and building trust in your business.

Show Highlights

  • How can media coverage help a pet business? [4:29]

Episode 177: Staying Compliant with Staff In Your Pet Business – The Best Kept Resource!

Today I want to share with you the best-kept resource in staying compliant with staff in your pet business. The Pet Industry Coalition is an organization dedicated to educating and advocating for the regulation and compliance of the Pet Industry. To tell you all about it, I’ve brought on two of the four co-founders, Lauren Cora and Katie Pape.

Compliant with Staff

Lauren is the owner of Dogs Deserve It, a dog walking company based out of Chicago, IL. Dogs Deserve It recently celebrated 10 years of service and has over 55 employees.

Staff in Your Pet Business

Similarly, Katie’s business Windy City Paws, is located in Chicago and has been in business for 10 years now. Katie has over 75 employees.

 

Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

With the pet industry being a rather unregulated business, staying compliant with staff in your pet business can be difficult. Thus, the Pet Industry Coalition was developed. Through the coalition they work to ensure businesses are aware of the differences between independent contractors and employees, as well as, the consequences of misclassifying staff.

 

Show Highlights

  • The start of the Pet Industry Coalition [5:02]
  • Mission of the coalition and who it’s for [8:18]
  • The difference between an employee and an independent contractor [9:20]
  • What to expect as a member of the Pet Industry Coalition [17:02]

Episode 176: Planning for Your Dog Walking Business in 2020

I know with being six days away from Christmas that planning for your dog walking business in 2020 is probably the last thing on your mind. However, I strategically posted this before Christmas so that you have time to get your thoughts flowing.

I want to help you come up with a plan to grow and exceed your expectations for business planning in 2020.

 

Dog walking Planning 2020

Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

There’s a major difference between planning for your dog walking business and goal setting. Where making plans can include a to do list that never stops growing, setting goals are concrete, quantifiable and specific. When you set a goal you need to give yourself an end date and start breaking down the processes necessary to get there.

Most importantly, you need to hold yourself accountable or get an accountability partner that can.

Show Highlights

  • 90 Day Goals [4:20]
  • 30 Day Goals [5:50]
  • Accountability [8:00]
  • What’s so different about 2020? [9:10]
  • Where to begin [10:38]
  • Can you hire out? [13:35]

Episode 175: How Your Pet Business Systems Save Your Profit

I want you to think of all of your pet business systems. Now, think about a time where maybe you told your staff to do something and gave them all of the direction needed to do it but for some reason, they didn’t do what you wanted them to do. Do you know what caused the problem?

Today I brought on a very special guest, Liz Illg, to share the importance of systems and processes for your pet business.

Liz is the Owner of Puff & Fluff Grooming and Pet Sitting with five locations in Phoenix area. Not only has Liz turned her passion for animals into a thriving business, she is an expert when it comes to creating an environment of growth for your business as well.

She can assist with everything from streamlining systems to creating manageable training and operational manuals. Liz received her Bachelor’s in Business from Arizona State University and her Master’s in Education from Northern Arizona University.

Liz Illg Headshot

Biggest Take Away You Don’t Want To Miss

If you’re ever going to grow your business, you need more than an Employee Handbook and Training manual. You need business systems and processes. You need a step by step how-to on how to complete each individual tasks that you do every day. It’s not as easy as telling your staff to do something. In order for it to be done correctly and the way you want it, you need to tell them exactly how you want it done.

You want to engage your employees and feed into them.

Show Highlights

  • How Liz was able to expand her business from 1 storefront to 5 [2:15]
  • Switching your mindset from blaming others to recognizing your own downfalls [7:20]
  • The difference between an Employee Handbook and Training manual and having processes and systems [9:33]
  • The strategy behind the processes [14:01]
  • Tone and Style of writing [23:30]
  • Why is the process never complete? [29:33]
