Hey friends!

I'm soooooo excited to have someone I really admire on the show today: Megan Minns, a Project Manager + Systems Strategist who helps online business owners streamline their systems, simplify their tech + organize their team to get more done the lean way.

Megan creates done-for-you tools + templates that free up your focus to do the work you love most and free up your time to spend with the people you love most. 

As a business owner who has also managed other six and seven-figure businesses, Megan knows how important it is to create workflows that work for you, so you can achieve your highest priority goals in less time. 

She’s also been featured in Inc., Make It Happen, One Woman Shop, + She Did It Her Way.

I FEEL LIKE I HAVE TO BE PERFECT AT RUNNING MY BUSINESS:

  • Being organized and structured doesn’t mean your creativity will be sacrificed

  • No one’s perfect. You don’t have to have all your systems documented before you hire.

  • Reoccurring tasks are going to make your life easier (asana)

  • Content creation process can be streamlined. Be consistent. Use templates. Build a routine. It will make your life easier long term. You will get more organized. (asana)

  •  

    There is no shame in postponing tasks. Don’t burn out. Listen to your body. Take a break.

  • Keep your system / tasks updated so you don’t get overwhelmed.

  • Keep your files organized + in folders. Create a holding spot if you can’t get to it right away.

  • You can sync folders on your computer when you open Google Drive. {gsuite}
