When I started my business I had SO many ideas (hello, shiny object syndrome!) + I was constantly scribbling thoughts + “plans” down on every scrap of paper or sticky note I could find.
But I had no systems in place.
I had no workflows to help me go from idea to end product.
I knew what I needed to do to grow my business but without strategic, step-by-step plans in place, I was making no progress.
I was posting content on my blog with no real purpose + every post looked different because I didn’t have a set workflow to follow. Then, when it came to promoting those posts, I had no idea where to post or when!
And then I started a second business and, with that, came the whole new challenge of clients. Suddenly, it wasn’t just me + my business anymore, it was client work too. And on-boarding new clients. And off-boarding. And remembering client birthdays…
But then I discovered Asana + the inner geek in me had the biggest party she’s ever had!
Not only could I make lists but I could create projects so that everything was grouped together. I could set deadlines + colour code things. Suddenly, I had a single space where I could organise EVERYTHING!
When Mark quit his job and joined the team, I could easily assign him tasks. And the best part? I didn’t have to do anything any different or spend hours explaining to him what needed to be done – everything was already there, all I had to do was add his name to the tasks!
Doesn’t that sound incredible?
