    #111: Laura Sinclair

    Laura Sinclair started her career in corporate social media at a time when corporations left “that social stuff” to interns. It didn’t take forever for her to get good and to realize that she could go out on her own.  In 2014 she left corporate and bought a failing business which she swiftly turned around so dramatically that it was generating more money each month than she paid for it.
    Forced to close a brick and mortar business during lockdown, Laura now shows other business owners how to market themselves and get on the same upward trajectory.
    We talk about dumb ways to waste $10,000, working while scared, keeping yourself in the right mindset, how a lot of marketers make things more complicated than they need to be, and a great deal more.

    Ep 109: Prove It Works By Breaking It

    Ep 109: Prove It Works By Breaking It

    What do you think will happen in 2023?
    I think I’m getting flowers.  “Why?” you ask. Because I’m planting flowers.  You all know my love of good systems for everything from my clients to my garden.  Today I’ve got for you today is a story about what happens when a client breaks all of those systems.
    We don’t wake up everyday amazed that water comes out of the pipes and the trains come on time. Maybe we should. There’s a lot of work that goes into systems when everyone needs them to work.  So what happens when the hub for all those systems gets improperly migrated? What happens when all the company’s documents, all the access permissions, all the SOPs, (each interconnected to the others with up-to-date links and passwords in a reliable filing system) what happens when they all get scrambled like an overturned scrabble board?

    Episode #107: Katherine Suarez

    Katie Suarez is a 5th generation Montanan with 20 years in the construction and building sector.  When she launched her company it was obvious that she’d be serving the sometimes gruff, always direct entrepreneurs of that space and their softer, kinder cousins from the design industry.
     
    Today, ‘Kate’ empowers residential contractors and interior designers to uproot traditional ways of working and seamlessly transition brick and mortar offices and studios into virtual businesses. Her goal is to release the pressure felt by small business owners by partnering with them to take on all of their "business-y" responsibilities, so they can focus on what they truly love and do best!
     
    Timestamps:
    07:25- When your ego gets in the way of letting other people do the work you need them to do.
    11:10- How nitching down has given Katherine the ability to tell a client what they need just based on their current revenue.
    20:07- How Kate gets clients
    30:09- Hold on… is Katie married to Kelly?
    31:01- Mistakes Kate made in the beginning.
    35:24- How Kate puts her week together
    40:11- Putting your neck on the line for your people

    Episode #106: Having My Systems Tested

    If you’ve been around here for a minute, you’ll know I love to talk about systems and having things run well. It’s been our focus over the last 6½ years as we help small businesses get organized and run better.
    Throughout that time I’ve been a broken record that you need good systems to run things well. Maybe over the last few years you’ve wondered if it’s true.  So I wanted to share two stories of how I had my systems tested just to show you that yes, it works.
