One of the biggest challenges that I’ve seen in businesses is that no matter how small or how large they are, they don’t have enough time to finish all of their daily processes. These businesses feel overwhelmed and can’t even imagine what the next step would be to resolve all of their organisational issues. One of the reasons for this overwhelm is that they add poor processes to their systems.
However, the main reason is that most business owners consider implementing processes a time stealer and a means to drain a lot of money due to inefficiencies.
Our guest today is Alexis Kingsbury, the co-founder of AirManual, a startup that helps businesses document their processes as well as onboard and train employees. With over 10 years of experience and with a remote and global team, Alexis will explain the power of systemising business procedures and processes for both your time and bottom line.
