If you don’t have clear SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures) for all the things you do in your business you’re in trouble.

Here’s why:

  • You won’t be able to scale
  • You can’t take a vacation
  • You can’t promote anyone on your team
  • It takes FOREVER to train new staff
  • You field a million questions everyday that suck your time
  • You’ll never be able to take a step back from operations
  • …the list goes on

Not having clear SOP’s is why your business is a mess.

BUT if you don’t have them, it’s not your fault.

Because no one told you where to start, how to create them, how to have your SOP’s evolve with the business or WHO IN THE HELL would be creating all of these things?

However, now all of your obstacles are irrelevant. Someone has figured out how to get around all those challenges and more.

His name is Tom Hughes and he’s going to open your mind to the possibility of SOPs that are highly effective and practically create themselves.

To learn Tom’s brilliant approach to these age old challenges, listen to this week’s episode.
