"I am not a systems person. I'm more of the creative type."
For years, I told myself that story. I was good at sales, marketing, and doing creative work.
But systems... I didn't want to come anywhere close to that.
Then I heard a simple concept that rocked my world.
As an entrepreneur, there are 3 skills you must master.
Turning leads into closed sales
Building systems to service those customers
For my entire career, I had been focused on 1 & 2. And I assumed I could get by and just hire someone to handle #3 for me one day.
But eventually that flipped on it's head.
I realized that if I wanted to grow, I had to learn how to build systems.
I had to learn how to think in systems.
Because I ultimately had to market and sell systems.
Over the past two years, I have become passionate about building systems.
And today my story is "I freaking love systems. They give me the freedom to do my creative work."
