Welcome to the 71st episode of The New Business Podcast, thanks for listening! Today’s show is a solo episode with just you and me chatting about your process design mindset and how to use it for optimal growth in your business.
When I talk about process design mindset what I mean is focusing on how you do what you do every day, looking at and documenting the steps involved in all of your tasks. And then taking a birds eye view of everything and finding what works best and what needs to be tweaked to make your life and your business run smoother.
The efficiency piece speaks to my first point which is understanding the world. If you were a computer program would there be more efficient ways of doing what you do? If so, what are those and how can you start doing them today? Look at what you’re doing and look for ways to make it simpler, easier. This is something I teach a lot of my coaching students.

My second point is to survey the field. Google things you wouldn’t normally google and learn from them. And as you’re surveying the field always be flexible enough to change what you’re doing. When you find someone who’s doing it better, faster or easier than you are follow in their footsteps. And always be open to asking for and receiving help, you never know what you’ll learn from other people.
Thirdly, and finally, is to document what you do. This might seem like a tedious task but it’s necessary for real growth in your business. I suggest creating standard operating procedures for every aspect of your business, from social media to answering emails to writing blog posts. I also believe you must mindmap your processes! I’ve included a great link in the resources below to help you.
These are my three primary suggestions for designing your life and creating sustainable growth in your business. Tune in for greater detail on each of these, and more on today’s episode of The New Business Podcast. Thanks for being here, I appreciate each and every one of you!
