    On this episode we're talking about what I actually do on a day to day basis as an integrator and Digital COO for six-figure entrepreneurs.
     
    Highlights:
    [2:45] How streamlining, adjusting team roles and reworking old processes has allowed me to create more content for my own business in the past month
    [4:48] I'm able to spend time with my family and focus on my 1:1 clients because I have a team who supports me
    [7:01] Sunday afternoons are reserved for planning my week per client

    [10:21] Creating a color-coded masterlist of client tasks and deciding an estimated timeframe for each allows me to better plan out my days

    [14:32] Mondays are for client check-ins, mapping out tasks, analyzing numbers, strategizing
    [17:47] Tuesdays are for call days with clients and teams
    [19:28] Wednesdays are for mid week check-ins on of my clients' teams
    [20:03] Thursdays are for working on my own business
    [21:06] Fridays are for my financials plus do a final check on my clients' Asana workspaces to wrap up the week
    [22:03] Clients can still access me via Voxxer after business hours
    [23:20] This year's personal goal is to set time for education per week - learning new platforms or knowing more on how to maximize current ones I use

Kristin dishes the tough love we all need more of

As a creative visionary business owner, I often find myself wishing I had a more rational, organized, to-the-point counterpart to keep me committed and in action. Kristin is CONSTANTLY that voice for me! She’s that planner/integrator/doer that so many of us crave we wish we had more of in our businesses and our lives — and this podcast is the best at filling that gap!!

Miss Task ,

Binged The Show In Like a Week

Kristin provides juicy information on each of her Podcasts. I took away at least one thing that I could take action on in each episode. Kristin provides the best information for moving your online business forward!

Thanks Kristin for your business tips, they are solid gold.
