132: How to Keep Your Business Running Even When You Aren’t There


Do you have systems in place in your business?

Life happens sometimes, and as business owners it can be difficult to maintain normal business operations when things come up. In this episode of Leading Lady, I’m sharing why we need to have systems and processes, especially when we’re down. 

If you have been following me, you probably know that July and August were very busy for me and I really needed to step away and take a pause from all things business related. Having said that, it doesn’t mean that my business stopped. 

As high-achieving women, entrepreneurs, business owners, and leaders of organizations, we know that we can’t just bring everything to a screeching halt. Things have to keep moving, even without us. 

Because of my systems and processes, I was able to take a step back when I needed to. My team knew what to do, even without me there. Things continued to run and I was able to get the rest I needed to keep operating at my best.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • Why I needed to take a step back in the summer
  • How my businesses carried on without me
  • The importance of your team knowing what to do without you
  • Allowing yourself time to rest
  • Giving yourself time to get back into the swing of things 

Having systems and processes in place allows you to take care of you when you’re really down and sick and business keeps on. It also removes the stress and guilt and gives you the peace of mind that things will continue to run without you. 

If you have any questions about how you can improve your systems and processes for when you’re sick, need a vacation, or need more work-life balance, reach out to me. I would love to hear from you!
