#63: Nothing is Comfortable at First
It seems everyone is talking about their comfort zone these days. It can be so hard to do things when they are uncomfortable or just don’t know where to start. And sometimes you have to power through and figure it out. But wouldn’t it be easier to get help from someone who’s been there? Today we are talking about comfort and delegating and my new workshop!
#62: A Reminder Not to Panic
This is your reminder not to panic. The world is a little crazy, ok a lot crazy. COVID is making a mess of all our fall plans. It's heavy right now. But we have done hard things before. And we will be ok.

Since we have been talking about systems and delegation this past few weeks, I thought it would be a great time to revisit Ep 21 How to Delegate So You Don’t Lose Your Mind.

Enjoy!

#58: Where Do You Want To Be On Your Org Chart?
As I sat at the pool last weekend, I thought I would quickly write up an org chart to lay out how my new and future team would lay out. But writing it down in black and white brought up a ton of questions about how I want Reynolds OBM to be structured now and down the line. Do I want to be involved in managing my team? Should I make the hires, and put them in the places others thought I should? Today I am walking you through my thoughts on the different pathways for team structure here and what is going into these decisions.
