05: Using SMART Systems To Grow Your Business

Evielyn lays out how to create SMART systems so you can scale your business in this episode. She says that bad systems and habits are only amplified by technology. That’s why technology is not necessarily the answer to ‘getting more organised’ or ‘growing your business’ or ‘getting things right.’ Instead you should start with the system and once you have the system right, then you can find technology and automation to fit into the system.
