    56 | Automation Basics for Your Online Business

    56 | Automation Basics for Your Online Business

    The episode I’m sharing today was pulled from a new Facebook Live series I did all about online business topics. I’m simply teaching for free, sharing resources, and pulling back the curtain and breaking things down step-by-step so that you can 1. KNOW what options you have and what they look like, and 2. Avoid getting burned by someone trying to sell you information that is freely available.
     
    The content today isn’t specific to professional organizers, but it may relate to projects you’re thinking of working on for your business while we are temporarily slowed down from in-home client work. Enjoy.

    52 | Legal To-Do List for Online Business Owners

    52 | Legal To-Do List for Online Business Owners

    Today, I am sharing an episode that was pulled from a new Facebook Live Series I am doing all about online business topics. Rigth now feels like the right time to share everything I know about this topic freely. 



    I will not be selling a single thing through this side-venture, just teaching for free and sharing resources, tutorials, and breaking things down step-by-step so that you can 1) know what options you have and what they look like, and 2) avoid getting burned by someone trying to sell you information that is actually freely available. 

    So, the content today is not specific to professional organizers but it may relate to projects you are thinking of working on for your business while we are temporarily slowed down from in-home client work.

Amazing!

Loving listening to Jen. I learn something new every single episode!

Becky {P} ,

Episode 38 if you have first client jitters!!

I’ve been a happy listener since the beginning of this podcast. Episode 38 has to be my favorite yet. I am a recovering perfectionist and so starting a business is daunting (for me). Listening to Jen talk you though first client sessions is like a friend giving you a loving kick in the butt forward towards making this business a reality. Thank you Jen!!

caitlin strempel ,

WOW!

This podcast is incredibly insightful. I find myself taking notes every episode... and I’m not even a pro organizer! Jen shares so much great knowledge about marketing and business in general that anyone could get something out of her podcast.
