Being told you need to have systems and organization in place in your own business can be frustrating.
As a blogger and influencer, you most likely started your business so you could have control over your life and be creative in your own way. So, when someone says you need to have these systems and organization, you might get triggered.
Don’t worry, I felt that way too when I first started my business.
After college and grad school, I worked in sales and we had Salesforce, we had meetings, we had schedules, we had reports that we had to do and even as an organized person, it wasn’t fun.
So, when I started my own business, I knew I didn’t want anything to do with any organization because it’s just not enjoyable.
We grew up being told what to do, when to do it, where to be, what schedule we had to follow. From grade school, to high school and college, and even grad school.
Now as an adult with their own blogging business, you might think “what for?” You’ve had these systems in place your entire life and now it’s finally time to do your own thing.
Now that you’re starting to take brand deals, grow your online presence, influence more, WITHOUT ORGANIZATION, it might feel like it’s unnecessary.
But it’s not.
Even as a very organized person, this wasn’t an obvious thing I didn’t realize I needed in my business.
It all started with working on a project last week with a Google Sheet, some documents, signing and sending documents. I knew I was going to have to do this again, so as I went through it the first time, I put a process in place.
The first time I completed the task, it took me just over 30 minutes to do it.
The second time I completed the task, it took me just 10 minutes to do it.
If you’re doing something over and over again, the difference between 30 minutes and 10 minutes is huge.
That’s like a 67% decrease in the time it took to complete a task.
You don’t need to do more things in order to be more successful. To be more successful, you need to be more efficient.
Quicker, better, faster.
When you are creating a process for everything you do and you have a framework around every system you do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis, you’re going to become extremely efficient.
You will cut down on the time you spend on small tasks.
When you’re making these systems, you’ll start recognizing opportunities in other areas of your business so you can become efficient.
Once you become more efficient, you start to think this way naturally, and you will be able to offload some of the tasks that need to be completed to someone else on your team.
That is where you see the growth.
