I started my first business over 20 years and turned that company into an established business I still run today. I own 2 children's performing arts academies in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Because this business is only open after school and weekends, and I wanted to be a mom, I had to figure out how to get the business to run without me.
And I did it, but It wasn't easy, especially in the beginning.
I was the girl answering the phone ON HER WEDDING DAY to make sure someone could register for a dance class.
But not any more!
It took a while, but I eventually learned a better way.
My story isn't common for small business owners, which is why it's been featured all over and it helped me win the Wisconsin Small Business Person of the Year.
And once I was able to successfully remove myself, I began to share it with other small businesses owners. Clearly the message has hit home for many, as my book instantly became an international best seller and my podcast, Well-Oiled Operations, has over 2 million downloads.
This led to me unintentionally building another highly successful established business teaching what I believe is the best operations program on the planet. We help small business owners (online and off) grow their business in a way that leverages smart strategies and systems, so they can enjoy whatever success looks like to them - without sacrificing their quality of life (or answering their business phone on their wedding day).
I work hard, but have clear boundaries and teach my clients to do the same.
If you are ready to take your business to the next level without losing your sanity and well-being in the process, you’re in the right place.
