CREATIVE BOOST — PUNCH UP YOUR PROCESSES: A New Way to Think About Business Operations


Business operations. Business processes. Operational infrastructure. Just thinking about these terms probably puts you halfway to sleep or sends you running for the nearest exit. But that is about to change….

Without a distinct and deliberate approach to operations, a business can’t fully function: no one would know where they fit in, what they were supposed to do, or how to do it. This leaves a business unprepared to handle growth, changes, or setbacks of any kind and vulnerable to slipping into chaos.

This energetic workshop for small business owners and managers will help you think about the inner workings of your business in a new way!

Making Time Aligning Your Calendar to Your Important Work.png

Do you spend your time putting out fires at work and home? At the end of the day or week did you make progress on important work? Are you really crazy busy or are maybe distracted and unfocused?

Do you even know how you spent your time in the last week? Last month? Does it align with what is important to you?

Each week has 168 hours. Time is a finite resource and how we use it is a choice.
