LHJ2 ,

A must-listen for soloprenuers

I’m so thrilled to have found Dolly’s podcast. Systems are key to taking biz to the “next level” and I appreciate that the strategies on this show are approachable for the average business owner operating without a large team. Thanks for all the great information Dolly!

Amanda Rai ,

Systems and workflow BFF

Dolly’s podcast feels like you are sitting right next to her having a cup of coffee together. She breaks down something as complicated as systems and workflows into bite sized actionable pieces anyone can take.

teacher entreprenuer ,

Dolly doesn’t hold back

Dolly and her guests pull back the curtain on granular specifics behind their systems and workflows. She’s transparent and shares from a place of honesty and expertise. I’ve particularly enjoyed her episodes on collaboration and summits. They provide so much value and are unlike any other resource I’ve seen on this topic.
