Hey hey 👋🏽, women coaches, consultants, and service-based business owners!

Are you ready to take your business to the next level? As a business strategist/consultant, I'm here to help you achieve your goals and make your business more efficient and profitable.🚀

I know that running a business can be overwhelming, especially when you're handling everything yourself.  That's where systemization and automation come in handy. It's like having your own personal 🤖 robot army to do all the boring stuff for you, so you can focus on the fun stuff (like sipping your favorite drink on the beach)🍹🏖️.

But, before we can unleash the robots, we need to create some standard operating procedures (SOPs). I know, I know, the thought of writing
✍🏽 a manual with step-by-step instructions for everything can make your head spin. But trust me, it's worth it. 🫰🏽

Think of SOPs as your business's secret sauce
🍾.  They help you train new employees and VAs quickly and efficiently, so you can focus on the more enjoyable parts of your business and spend more time doing the things you love most. Plus, they ensure that everything is done the way you want it done. And who doesn't love having things done their way? ‍🤷🏽‍♀️

So, let's start by listing 📝 the primary tasks and procedures in your business. This could include how to respond to a client inquiry, how to create a social media post, or even how to make a killer cup of coffee (because let's face it, for some, caffeine is crucial to their business success). ☕

Once you have your list, it's time to map out each process
🗺️.  This is where the real fun begins. Get out your detective 🕵🏾 hat and start investigating how each task is done. Write down every little detail, even if it seems obvious (like putting on pants before leaving the house). Trust me, you don't want to miss anything.

Once you've mapped out the process, it's time to create checklists and forms. This is like creating a recipe 🍴for your team to follow. And who doesn't love a good recipe? Just make sure to include all the ingredients (like fonts and colors for your branding) and instructions (like how often to post on social media) to ensure success.

And don't forget to update your SOP manual regularly. It's like giving your business a facelift. You want to make sure everything stays fresh and up-to-date, so your team can keep delivering top-notch service to your clients. ‍

So, there you have it, SASSY ladies. With your SOP manual in hand, you'll be ready to take on the world (or at least your business) like a boss. And who knows, with all this extra time on your hands, you might just have time for that favorite drink after all. 🥂🎉

Let's go SASSy Lady ... It's time for you to Get Your SASS On in your business

(S)trategic + (A)ction + (S)ignature + (S)ystems = SASS

I'm here to help you achieve your goals and make your business more efficient and profitable.
