OTE 47: How You Can Get Your Lost Hours BACK

OTE 47: How You Can Get Your Lost Hours BACK

Have you ever hired someone hoping to free up some of your time, only to realize that you had more time when it was just you? On this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we are going to be talking about a new program we are creating to teach you all about the #1 way to get your time back. 

We Can All Figure It Out

So many entrepreneurs get stuck in thinking that they aren’t ready to start hiring. It might be thinking that you can’t afford it, you assume all the work you’re doing has to be done by you, or you don’t know if you can manage people. 

At some point, I have believed in all of those things, and I was DEAD WRONG. 

There are many tasks in your business that you personally need to do, but there are also a lot of tasks you don’t need to be doing! 

I’ve seen entrepreneurs who do work that cannot be replicated, create systems that allow them to hire people and get amazing results. 

If they can figure it out, YOU CAN TOO.

My team and I have created a FREE 15-minute interactive one-pager to help you identify your business’s tasks that you can get off your plate RIGHT NOW!

Get Time Back 

There are so many times when you hire someone, and you’re so excited. You pay them all this money, you do all this training, and you spend ALL YOUR TIME managing them. 

You end up having LESS time than you did when it was just you doing everything. 

Our team at Owning The Edge is creating a training to show you what we did with early hires that actually opened up our lives.

We are putting all the information together on how we went from wasting money and time on new-hires to hiring people in a way that allowed us more freedom. 

Before we figured this all out, we were non-stop running. We spent all our time working on tasks we could have gotten other people to be doing, which really burnt us out. We weren’t growing as fast as we wanted to, and we weren’t doing the things we actually loved to do. 

We opened up the ability to stop and figure out which direction we wanted our business to be heading.

If you want to learn more about this amazing program we’re working on, go to owningtheedge.com/gettimeback

Time-Releasers 

The first people you want to hire for your business are not going to be experts in the field. 

You’re going to want to hire people that are time-releasers. Hire people to do tasks that are kind of monotonous but are required for the business. It might be outreach strategies, pulling analytics, creating reports of information to use so you can make the right decisions, or so many other things!

Whatever it is, you can find someone to help you from becoming bogged down and overwhelmed with all of these tasks. 

Hiring someone to get your time back is essential during the early stages of your business. 

You’re still trying to figure out so much of what’s going on. Your target market, your marketing strategies, your products/programs are still in beta mode. 

You need more time to start finding more customers and making more money before you can afford to start hiring those experts for your business, and hiring people to be time-releasers is really going to be a game-changer.

OTE 46: The ONE THING That Allowed Me To Get 15 Hours Back Every Week And Changed My ENTIRE LIFE.

OTE 46: The ONE THING That Allowed Me To Get 15 Hours Back Every Week And Changed My ENTIRE LIFE.

What would you do with an extra 15 hours back a week in your life? The answer to this question could determine how fast your business can grow. In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we are talking about how to free up some of your time and how to reinvest that time into your business.

The Day I Woke Up

I worked for as long as I can remember on an ongoing project that took up hours of my time every day. It wasn’t slowing down as our business grew, and I actually took on more stuff as our business grew and needed more done. 

I had to do more things than I was used to doing, and every time we had a new project, there was more for me to do. 

The tasks I needed to do easily took up 40 hours a week, and the work to grow the business was about 20 more on top of that. 

I was getting burnt out. 

I started to think that it would be possible for me to outsource some stuff and hire people to do parts of the business, taking up an insane amount of my time. 

We ended up hiring someone that didn’t really work out. 

Training them was draining. It took up more time than what we were initially spending, and the quality of the work they were doing just wasn’t up to par. When we hired them, we weren’t even clear on what tasks we wanted them to do. 

It was an absolute mess.

But we learned. We grew a little bit and were more sure of what tasks we needed to have covered. We had built more processes of how to do the work and how to do quality control. 

Once we had it together, we found an absolutely incredible VA, and it blew us away.

I remember the day that I woke up and suddenly had FREE TIME. I was so confused. I had no idea what to do with myself. It was a fantastic feeling. 

What Would You Do?

So, we successfully hired an amazing VA. She freed up so much more time in my day-to-day life. 

But what do I do with all this extra time?

If you take those 15 hours back and you take a break, YOU PROBABLY NEEDED IT.

Once you’re done with your break, look at what you really want in your business.

Once you hit this point, you are probably asking:

  • » How do I grow my business?
  • » How do I get more value out of what I’m doing?
  • » How do I scale?

If you can take those freed up hours and figure out how to make more money than it cost you to hire that person, you can hire another person. 

Have your new hires replace things you are currently doing and get that time back to reinvest it immediately into what it takes to make more money for your business. 

Down the line, you will narrow your tasks down to only things that you LOVE to do that are crazy dollar productive.

OTE 45: Why The Perfect Webinar System Works For Literally ALL Businesses (Even Those That Don’t Use Webinars)

OTE 45: Why The Perfect Webinar System Works For Literally ALL Businesses (Even Those That Don’t Use Webinars)

The Perfect Webinar from Russell Brunson is a fantastic training program that will help ANY business. It doesn’t matter if you’re building a webinar. You can apply the concepts in this training to so much. In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we will be talking about some important concepts that really inspired me from this training.

Have Passion for Your Customers

If you want to have a successful long-term business, you have to have a passion for your customers. You have to have that drive to care about what’s going on in their lives. 

The pandemic took out so many businesses last year because they just weren’t relevant anymore. They weren’t ahead of the curve because they weren’t thinking about what their customers needed and how to serve them better. 

Businesses that were able to do great last year are always paying close attention to their customers and clients. 

Remember that you are serving REAL PEOPLE. On the other side, they are purchasing your products or training services or whatever it is you do. 

If you can find out who they are, you can figure out what they need.

Everybody needs something, and if you can be that something they need most, your business will thrive. 

Get Time Back

There is so much that you need to get done to grow your business.

When you start hiring, don’t go for the expensive expert who knows something you don’t. 

Hire someone to help free up your time. Hire someone to do the easy repetitive tasks that take up huge chunks of your day. 

Use the time that you get back and put it back into your business. If you could get 10 hours back a week, could you produce another thousand dollars of profit in your business? That’s where you start to see how you can really scale. 

Don’t Let Objections Stop Growth

Before I started successfully hiring, I had all of these objections as to why I couldn’t do it. It’s too timely, I tried it before, I couldn’t find someone to do stuff that only I could do, etc.

We have all these reasons, but businesses answer for those all the time. 

So how did I overcome these? 

I got insights that suddenly changed. It went from this excuse that was stopping me to this thing that allowed me to move forward. I thought if someone couldn’t do the entirety of something, then why hire them in the first place. 

But then I realized that they don’t have to do the whole thing. They could do steps 1 through 4, and I could do step 5. Even though I was still involved in that task, so much of my time was still freed up.

A lot of people have preconceived notions of why they can’t do something. Some people think they can’t do amazing presentations because they’re introverts. But a lot of great entrepreneurs are entirely crushing it on stages and in webinars that are introverts. 

You have to be tactical about how you do things. Figure out how to overcome your objections.

OTE 44: My Trick To Creating Incredible SOPs For My Hires That Ensure The Job Gets Done Right Each And Every Time

OTE 44: My Trick To Creating Incredible SOPs For My Hires That Ensure The Job Gets Done Right Each And Every Time

Training new employees can be DRAINING. Have you ever hired someone only to realize that you were spending more time and energy just to get the same amount of work done? In this episode of Owning The Edge Podcast, we’re going to be getting into how to create standard operating procedures that will help you free up your time and get the most value from your employees. 

Step-By-Step

Entrepreneurs are so used to doing so much on their own. At first, this method of doing everything yourself is going to allow for a lot of speed. 

We are always responding and taking on every task and challenge that comes our way.

But eventually, this is going to really bog you down and prevent your business from growing. 

Creating standard operating procedures (SOP) is a real game-changer when you hire more hands to help. SOP’s are the step-by-step instructions on how something’s done, what quality you want, how something is maintained, or any process that can be done by someone other than yourself. 

Creating an SOP is the key to having someone else come in and be able to do work that you’ve been doing for years in the way you want it done. It’s going to really allow the person you’re hiring to do an excellent job pretty quickly.

If you’re just starting out with hiring, the jobs you’re hiring for must have a step-by-step process. Your new employee should be able to walk in, sit down, go through the step-by-step process, and accomplish the task with excellent quality. 

At first, look for the tasks that free up the time that you should be spending elsewhere.

These are simple and repetitive tasks that you should easily be able to create a standard operating procedure for.

Offer Ownership

Realistically, your first standard operating procedures aren’t going to be perfect. There are going to be a few things that don’t connect.

When you’re training your new employee, let them ask questions and even make changes and additions to the SOP if they find a better way to do something or just feel like more information is needed. 

When you give employees that ownership and let them be a part of the design process, it brings them into this community that you’re building. They’re going to have a higher buy-in, the quality of their work will be better, and you might even be able to keep them on your team in the long-run. 

It’s a Process

I always start my employee’s out with video training. This will show them how to do the task that you need them to do. Have them attempt to do the task from the video and let them ask questions. 

If the method becomes a standard process and is a task that your company will continually need to happen, talk to your employee about taking their step-by-step process and creating an official SOP. 

Not only will letting them create the SOP give them ownership, but it will also make it a lot easier to train the next person if you need to grow more or if that person ever leaves your company.

OTE 43: The #1 Misconception About Building A Team That’s Stealing Your Time, Energy, And Money

OTE 43: The #1 Misconception About Building A Team That’s Stealing Your Time, Energy, And Money

Have you tried to hire experts onto your team, only to realize that you can’t really afford them or don’t know how to manage them? In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we are going to be talking about who you should be looking to hire, why you should hire them, and how to manage them. 

You Can’t Clone Yourself

When I first started looking for people to hire out, I was trying to find someone who could do everything that I could do. 

I expected to find someone who would immediately take on half of my workload, do everything perfectly, and not have to spend a bunch of time explaining everything to them. 

I essentially wanted to be able to clone myself.

Everyone that came in was being judged based on my skills, and if they didn’t live up to them, they just weren’t the right person.

I am so glad I got that thinking out of my head because that’s not what I actually needed. 

First off, hiring exceptionally talented people who come and do their thing at the level you would want is expensive as hell. In most cases, it is too costly for fledgling entrepreneurs who don’t have the funding to support it. 

Obviously, at a certain level (when your business can afford it), these people are 100% worth it because they’re so skilled. 

But until then, cloning yourself and hiring extremely skilled workers is not going to be in your business’s budget. 

The truth is that you can get a lot of work done through freelancers, which is an excellent idea if your team isn’t ready to add on new people.

Think about it more as not hiring people to make more money for the company, but hiring people to free up some of your time so that you can make some more money for the company. 

It’s All In The Steps

Get the things you need to be done broken down into step-by-step processes. 

Having a standard operating procedure will allow you to bring someone in, let them read the steps, and have them actually get it done. 

Think about things in your business that don’t require you to have some custom uniqueness or creativity that only you can provide. Especially things that are simple and repetitive. These are areas where you might be able to get some support.

If you know that you’re looking for someone to fill in the holes of things that can be done repetitively and consistently, then it does not need any of your magic, and you can just let them do it.

OTE 42: The ONE THING Entrepreneurs Can Do Right Now To Free Up More Time Than They Ever Thought Possible

OTE 42: The ONE THING Entrepreneurs Can Do Right Now To Free Up More Time Than They Ever Thought Possible

Are you at a point where you find yourself doing a ton of simple and repetitive tasks that just eat away at all your time? In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we’re going to be talking about team building, why it’s essential to your business’s growth, and why we make so many mistakes around it. 

Is Everything On You?

When I first started, every promise and service for each customer was on me. Whatever it took to get my foot in the door and make it happen, I did it. 

Entrepreneurs spend a lot of their time here in this space. Making all the pieces and putting them together on our own.

We get to this level where we don’t know if we can actually go on anymore by ourselves. We push past our comfort zones, learn the skills we need, and continue to get things done. 

But one of the fastest ways to own the edge and get your company to the next level is to HAVE SOME SUPPORT. 

Someone that helps you do things when you start to feel like everything you do is just preemptive repetitive tasks. 

Make Standard Operating Procedures

When I started hiring (both skilled and unskilled workers), I realized that it took more time away from me than if I just did the task myself. 

Tasks I could do easily were now taking twice my time to explain to someone how to do something and then redo it because it didn’t meet my standards. 

You have another person join your business, the thing you’ve been building for years, and you expect this person to be great at it immediately?

It’s not about replacing you. It’s not about someone coming in and being able to take whatever you throw at them. 

Just get someone to do the easy and repetitive tasks in a way that you know it will be done right.

If you create standard operating procedures for these easy repetitive tasks, you will be able to free up so much time. 

I remember what felt like the first time in forever when I could just go on a walk. I was actually able to reclaim some of my time.

OTE 041: How To Avoid Falling Into The Last 10% Trap That’s Stealing Your Success

OTE 041: How To Avoid Falling Into The Last 10% Trap That’s Stealing Your Success

Have you ever put so much work into a project and then felt like it all fell apart at the last 10%? In today’s episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we’re going to be talking about WHY that happens and HOW to get over that hurdle. 

 

The Last 10% Trap

I cannot even tell you how many times I have fallen into this thing I like to call the last 10% trap. 

When you’re on any project, there’s this point that you can hit after you’ve done almost all of the work where you feel like something just is missing. The last 10% seems to take so much more time and energy than the first 90% of the work. 

I have seen so many entrepreneurs stop at this point because they realize that there’s something just a little off with their pieces. 

It feels like everything you’ve built up to that point comes crumbling down. It feels like you have to go back and redo all of your work.  

Even though you may need to go back in and make some changes to it, all that work you did was valuable. Maybe you learned a little bit more about your audience, your team, yourself, your product, or your production through the process. Those are all genuinely significant things.  

Don’t let yourself feel like it was all for nothing and that you have to restart from the beginning. The last 10% is really just the final finessing that brings something that might’ve just been okay to something truly amazing. 

Keep moving forward on your project. Get it out there and start testing it. 

The two most common things that can happen during the last 10%:

  • » You start to feel less motivated and more of a drag.
    • » Look around and remind yourself why you started this whole thing in the first place. 
  • » You realize that you’re missing a skill. 
    • » Get out there and hire someone to help you over that hurdle! Whether it be a web designer, a copywriter, or anything else!

OTE 040: The Lies We’ve Been Led To Believe About Work/Life Balance That Are Actually Costing Us Money AND Happiness

OTE 040: The Lies We’ve Been Led To Believe About Work/Life Balance That Are Actually Costing Us Money AND Happiness

There’s so much guilt people put on entrepreneurs for either putting time into their business or putting time into other aspects of their lives. People, and tv shows, and media, all try to make us feel like it’s one or the other. If we are doing well in one thing; then we think that we must not be neglecting the other things. In today’s episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we’re going to be talking about how all the elements of your life are intertwined and how going after your lifestyle goals can actually help you with your business. 

There’s No Equal Balance 

The biggest misconception is when people believe that the balance between the elements in your life always has to be equal. They think that if they spend 10 hours at work, they have to spend an equal 10 hours with their family. They feel like they have to cut out other essential elements in their life, like their health or sleep. 

It’s not equal. It’s never just said and done.  

Balancing the different elements in your life is an ongoing process that gets you closer to your goals.  

If one of your goals is to build a deeper connection to your partner or family, then that means that you need to take the time and energy to do that.  

If you’re doing an event for your business, you’re going to find that a lot more of your time during that period will be spent on your business. AND THAT’S OK.  

All these elements you’re balancing aren’t separated. They’re all together. 

If you take the time to care for your health, you’ll realize that you’ll have so much more energy in the other elements of your life. If you take the time to deepen your relationships with your partner, friends, and family, you’ll realize that you’ll feel so much more pumped about the other aspects of your life because you’ll have people to rally beside you! 

If I’m building my business, I’m also working on my relationships, health, and all the other aspects I want to include in my life. 

It’s Not About Sacrifice

We always hear this myth that to have a successful business, we will have to sacrifice other aspects of our life. 

But that’s not how it works!

It takes time to build up your business; you can’t just wait and put the rest of your life on hold while you do it. 

Figure out how to work in the lifestyle you want into your goals. Stop waiting to travel until you reach your business goals and decide to achieve those goals while traveling.

You’re not sacrificing your business when you have a life; you’re FEEDING it. 

The energy that comes from having a real-life is going to be the battery for your business. The thing that truly motivates you will be the combination of every aspect of your life getting to where you want it to be. The real human connections you can be making are what will drive you to do amazing things with your business.

OTE 39: Is This MYTH About Business Costing You The Life You Truly Deserve?

OTE 39: Is This MYTH About Business Costing You The Life You Truly Deserve?

I’m so over the movie trope that the rich, successful person is greedy, sad, and unfulfilled until they give up on their business to be with their family. In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, I’m going to be getting into how it is possible to be successful without sacrificing your relationships or health. 

The Myth

We are continually being told that in order to grow our business, to scale, to be successful, we need to put in all of our blood, sweat, and tears. That if you choose to build your business that it will consume every aspect of your life.

We are told that we should expect to give up on things like our health, our lives, or our time with our family. 

I have seen more pain, more stalling, and less satisfaction in people’s lives when they have bought into this myth.  

If you’ve let your family, relationship, health, and overall enjoyment in life take a backseat to your business, you’re probably struggling.  

You don’t need to sacrifice to be successful.  

The fact is that if you want to build your business and really expand, you have to be smart. It’s not about just putting in the hours and doing more. 

Build Your Business Differently

You have to go beyond the usual thing. You can’t just put in more hours and do more. 

If you want your business to grow, you have to be clear and controlled about where you’re going and where your energy is going. 

You have to shift your role to a place where less and less of your time is used to create any particular outcome.  

Leverage your knowledge, your instincts, and what you know about your audience. Compact your hours to have more effect. 

Have a strategy, use your time wisely, and ENJOY YOUR LIFE.

Solve The Problem That Excites You

It’s EASY to simplify our problems. To say, “I’m just going to focus on my business and do whatever it takes.” 

But what’s more fulfilling is to figure out how to scale your business while also deepening your relationships and becoming the healthiest you’ve ever been. 

That, to me, is EXCITING. 

Having a goal that includes my whole quality of life is what really lights me up. 

Acknowledge that it’s not a balance. It’s not always going to be equal, but you don’t have to feel guilty on both sides. It doesn’t have to be equal.

You don’t want to only have a million dollars; you want to LOVE YOUR LIFE.

OTE 38: The EASY SECRET To Getting BETTER At Anything You Want, Even If You Have ZERO Time

OTE 38: The EASY SECRET To Getting BETTER At Anything You Want, Even If You Have ZERO Time

As entrepreneurs, we want to make all of these great things happen, but we feel like we just don’t have the time. So, we put things on hold, things that are important to us, hoping that someday we can make time for it. It’s true, we’re busy, but there’s actually a super easy secret to achieving your goals. In this episode of Owning the Edge Podcast, we’re going to be talking about how to stop putting things on hold and start making use of the small number of minutes that we do have.

The Minutes Matter

We have all these big goals. Huge things we want to achieve. 

But we have this tendency to stop making sure that the minutes matter. 

We trick ourselves into thinking that if we can’t do the whole thing, we don’t do anything. I can think of several times when I just didn’t have the time to do a full workout, so I just didn’t do it at all. 

We need to remember that it’s the pieces that make the whole thing happen!

Those little things, those five to fifteen minutes in between things, can really change our lives. 

Think about it; a person who puts something on hold until they have the time to focus on it entirely might be waiting indefinitely. But if you just start taking action and doing little segments each day, you’re going to be SO FAR AHEAD of the person who put it on hold. 

What’s the Smallest Thing You Could Do?

I want to challenge you to take a minute and think about things you really want, whether related to your business, relationships, or health. 

Now think about what is the smallest thing that you could do to move towards that. 

It may only be 5 or 15 minutes a day, but it can really build up and make a difference in your life. 

Two to three times every day, I take a deep breath and remind myself why I’m doing this and who I’m doing it for. 

Take time to tell your partner, friends, team, and family just how much they mean to you. You’ll see your relationships grow to such a deeper level. 

These things are SO LITTLE, but you can really see their incredible impact.
