Episode 90: Simon Severino

If you’re creative, systematization, SOPs, and checklists (oh my!) might sound like some corporate stiff is sucking all the fun out of your business. But the exact opposite is true for my guest Simon (and most successful business owners I know) — systems and SOPs led to more time, energy, and even joy! If you’re struggling with the idea of becoming “replaceable” in your business, this episode is for you. 

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • True or False: luck is something that happens to you. Simon has my favorite freaking analogy EVER explaining how to REALLY get “lucky” in business.

  • Do overnight success stories ever make you feel behind in your biz? Simon’s got two real-world biz examples that show there ain’t much “overnight” about an overnight success. (Breathe easy, my friend. You’re right on time.)

  • “I AM CREATIVE! YOU CAN’T CONTAIN THIS!” Oh, babydoll. Simon and I break down why putting baby in the corner (or in a box) might be just what you need to really turn up the creative juices.

  • Let’s do a little myth busting (with a loving smack upside the head): systematizing a service is NOT cheating, lazy, or uncreative. It’s the exact opposite… hear me out on this one (forewarning: we get a little ranty)

  • Simon fired himself from day-to-day operations of his biz. SPOILER ALERT: The business kept growing. If you’re deeply intertwined in every process, his story could be the inspiration you need to get yourself unstuck so your biz can truly grow.

This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!
