I built a culture that created the largest percentage of promotions from my direct hires. And I also worked with all the centers to create over $2.7 million in annual payroll savings from efficiency and productivity analysis, and single-handedly led implementation of those improvements across all the US locations.
My experiences in the corporate arena, as well as my Infusionsoft and Six Sigma certifications, translate directly to helping entrepreneurs and small business owners understand the value of time management and setting up systems to do the work for them.
In addition to helping businesses with expert implementation and virtual administration jobs, I’m also a regular speaker and workshop facilitator. Through fun, informative sessions, I help business owners learn how to let go of all the day-to-day tasks that either don’t suit them or waste their time. They are suddenly free to work “on” their businesses, not “in” their businesses. Once they begin working this way, many experience significant growth in revenues as well as improved company morale.
