    Finance Follows Strategy: Annual Forecasting With Drew Romney

    Finance Follows Strategy: Annual Forecasting With Drew Romney

    In this episode, I'm talking with Trainual's Director of Finance, Drew Romney. This episode is about structuring your annual forecasting and why finance follows strategy. 

    The holiday music is playing when you walk through the retail stores, and that means it's time for strategic planning and forecasting. So as we approach the end of this year, I thought what better conversation to start to surface than one about how we do forecasting inside our business. 

    So I invited our director of finance, Drew Romney, onto the show. We talked through how Trainual does forecasting, how you should think about forecasting in your business, what metrics and numbers you need to have in order to do the forecasting exercise, and how to communicate it to your team. So if you are thinking about forecasting, about budgeting, about your numbers for next year, then you're going to get a lot out of this conversation.

    This audio is from an Organize Chaos live. If you ever have a burning question for me that you want answered on the podcast, message me on LinkedIn. And if you don't want to miss our next Organize Chaos live stream, follow me for future updates.

    Productivity Paranoia?? More Like A Lack Of Trust & Autonomy

    Productivity Paranoia?? More Like A Lack Of Trust & Autonomy

    Productivity paranoia? Let’s call it what it is: Lack of trust and autonomy. I think this increased paranoia from managers and boss' really stems from a lack of trust, autonomy, and clear exceptions, not a remote work environment. Let me explain in today's episode.

    Process Will Set You Free // With EOS Implementer, Lisa González

    Process Will Set You Free // With EOS Implementer, Lisa González

    In this episode, I'm speaking with Lisa González. This is almost a little meta because her playbook or her book is called 'Process! How Discipline and Consistency Will Set You and Your Business Free.'  Like mine, hers is all about creating a playbook for your business. And so a page from Lisa's playbook is a book about playbooks, like my book about playbooks. So this one's fun!  

    You're going to like this if you like anything about process and operations. Just hearing Lisa's story, how she grew up in an entrepreneurial family, how she became the EOS implementer that she is now, how she got involved with the community and co-authored this book was awesome. We loved talking about it and having this banter around process.   

    After applying all of the EOS principles in her companies and intersecting with Gino Wickman, reading 'Traction,' EOS had made such a profound impact on her businesses that she wanted to share her expertise and process with other growth-minded companies.  

    Today she's a speaker, an author, a process fanatic, and she's, like I mentioned, the co-author of this book, 'Process!' So dive in, dig in, take some notes and I hope it helps you better document your processes.

    My Employee Gave Me An 8 Month Notice!!

    My Employee Gave Me An 8 Month Notice!!

    What is the appropriate amount of notice an employee should give before they leave? 2 weeks, 1 month, 8 months!?! 8 months might sound rare, but I actually received an 8 month heads up from one of our senior leaders on the team. Super generous! It got me thinking, what is the right amount of notice and what should this transition out of your company look like?
