Oh boy do I have a good episode for you guys today! In this episode, I’m chatting with Jenn Bays, the CEO of Success Beyond the Lens – a business management and marketing company. What started as a side hustle is now a big company and she did this all while being a wife and a mother of 3.
If you’re just getting started, you should definitely invest in a CRM system ( Honeybook, is a great place to start) and make sure you spend the time truly learning the system. Go to Youtube or Vimeo and go through their get started process to learn how to set up the systems properly.
You might want to start outsourcing when you start making a certain amount of money or because you have kids or an elderly parent to take care of – it’s really going to depend on you and where your priorities lie. I’m a big fan of outsourcing before you’re ready because onboarding anyone during your busy season is never fun. You won’t be able to train them properly and that’s no fun for anyone.
Outsourcing can also give you more mental energy because you know the tasks that you don’t love doing are being done by someone else and someone you trust. You’ll feel like you have more time and more energy and your business benefit because of that.
“Give yourself grace. You’re going to learn, you’re going to find room for opportunities so allow yourself to do those things, take a bad experience and figure out what you need to do differently to make it a good experience for someone else.” – Jenn Bays, CEO of Success Beyond the Lens
