    EP 370 | Help, I Need An Assistant with Gina Cotner

    When someone asks you about your fantasy life, do you immediately think of your Hollywood crush or, are you so deep in the weeds that an assistant is where your mind goes? Ah yes. An assistant. A magical, mythical creature who can do all the tasks you don’t have time to do, plus keep you organized, answer your emails, deal with client headaches, and generally solve most of your problems. Sound about right?

    In this episode we learn:
    - make a list of the tasks you love doing and the tasks you hate doing
    - imagine if you could turn over the tasks you hate to someone else
    - create training videos in advance of hiring
    - to retain staff, share the accolades
    - allow yourself to delegate tasks that you may enjoy, but take a lot of your time

    EP 369 | Be the Expert with Kimberley Seldon

    EP 369 | Be the Expert with Kimberley Seldon

    It's not how many years you've been in business. It's not how many clients you’ve serviced. It's not even about always knowing what to say to your clients or trades or staff. Being an expert begins with mindset. If you develop the mindset of an expert, you will become an expert. How do you develop an expert’s mindset? By relying on written, repeatable systems that support your business and life goals.

    In this episode we learn:
    - I am the expert I am the prize.
    - I am on a mission to help.
    - I can only do that if you let me lead.
    - All will not follow, and that is OK.

    Success is not an accident. It's a strategy.
