2020 has been a long year (to say the least), but now is the perfect time to review your systems and start preparing yourself to step into the CEO role of your business.
One of the things I’ve learned this year is just how important systems and processes are to a business. Having the right systems in place this year allowed me to step back for a few months during my first trimester and focus just on client work while the rest of my business kept running.
Below are the top 5 most read blog posts from 2020. And surprise surprise, they’re all about creating systems and the tools to use for running your business.
01. My 3 Favorite Things About HoneyBook
Earlier this year I announced that I had left Dubsado for HoneyBook. I can’t tell you how many people messaged me shocked by the change. Why were they shocked? I had been with Dubsado for 4 years, launched multiple courses centered around the platform, and set up numerous Dubsado accounts for clients.
While there were many reasons for leaving Dubsado, I shared my top 3 reasons why I moved to HoneyBook. Since writing that post I can tell you one more thing I’d add to that list: auto-bill for both recurring payments and for invoices with payment schedules. That small feature has been a game changer not just for me, but for my clients who also moved over to HoneyBook from Dubsado.
02. Stand out from your competitors with a simple, personalized Dubsado workflow
Workflows and automation don’t have to be cold, robotic, or impersonal. With Dubsado (and HoneyBook) there is one feature you can use in your workflows that will allow you to personalize your canned emails.
03. Uplevel your business with a weekly CEO Day
If you’ve never heard of a CEO Day, then 2021 is the perfect time to learn and implement in your business.

05. What is Asana and how does it work?
