Organize Your Entire Business by Laura Smith
Organize Your Entire Business
Like a CEO
As you may know, my whole entire blog and business is built around planners and organizing.
You might imagine that I’ve always had my business beautifully organized and running like a well oiled machine. . .
Ha ha, I wish!
To be completely honest, two years ago the behind the scenes of my business felt more like a total mess than a well oiled machine.
You know all the things that bloggers need to do and keep track of? The social media, creating graphics, writing posts, taking or sourcing beautiful photos, creating products, networking, promoting, tracking affiliate programs, answering email, and so on!
It was spinning out of control fast. As you know, I love putting pen to paper and no digital tool will ever replace that. However, here’s the truth that I discovered:
If you want to grow your blog into generating a reliable, significant income, you’re going to need to embrace the world of digital tools and organization (especially if you don’t want to be going crazy working 40+ hour weeks). You simply can’t manage all the moving pieces (and a team) with pen and paper.
So, while I still love my pen and pretty printables for organizing my home and day to day, I’ve discovered this AMAZING digital organizing tool that helps me run my business more like the well oiled machine that I want it to be.
I want to show how good it feels to have all your blog and business stuff in one place and to have processes and systems for everything.
So I created a course called “How to Organize Your Entire Biz Like a CEO.”
This course is more of a “take you behind the scenes and show you the nitty gritty of exactly how it works” type of thing – and not so much a “here are all the theories” type of thing.
I really think you’ll learn the most by seeing it in action.
I’m definitely not claiming to be an expert about all of this stuff, but I have learned so much that I really wish I had known in the beginning, and I think I can save you some mistakes and hassle by sharing it with you now.
Here’s just some of what the course covers:
- Why you need to create processes and systems in your business (even if you don’t think you need them and you just started your blog yesterday)
- How to get started setting up systems for your business even if you currently have none
- I’ll take you on a tour of how I have Asana set up and what I use it for
- I’ll walk you through my blog posting system and process PLUS give you a copy and paste blog post process template
- How I track all my business to do’s so things don’t fall through the cracks
- How I actually plan my weeks and days so I’m doing the stuff that matters
- How I combine my love of pen and paper with all this digital stuff
I can’t wait to share all this with you!
If you want to learn all about how to get your entire blog and biz organized, I can’t wait to see you inside the course.
Laura started her blog called I Heart Planners a little over 3 years with no prior experience. She wanted a place to share her love of organizing and planners plus make a little side income.
Her blog now gets hundreds of thousands of visitors and makes a steady, full time income. She loves sharing how she did it with other women who want to do the same.
