Welcome to the Sink Handle Podcast

Where we fight the small business panic so you don’t have to chug that secret handle of gin you keep under your sink.

Today I want to share the tools that have saved me time and money and sanity. I figured they might help you too, in this quest for getting more streamlined and efficient  in the face of the apocalypse.

Scope creep is real and awful. Let's fight the scope creep by laying out exactly what we offer and who we serve in a clear, easy to understand way.

Do you want to grow?  Do you want to not be the only one who knows how to do everything?  Do you want to go on vacation?  Then you my friend, need systems.

Boundaries are just a way to make sure that everyone is on the same page. We all know what to expect.  Which is like magic. 

How much money are you leaving on the table while you work for free because you think it’s cheaper to do it yourself? 

When we panic, we try to do all the things at once, fail miserably, then feel terrible. Instead, let's figure out what to prioritize and make a plan.

Who are you?  Where do you see your business in the next 2 years? 5 years? What does your business stand for?  All of these questions (and more) are covered in this week’s episode.

The stories we tell ourselves are everything.  Just like when the guy in the movie gives himself a pep talk in the mirror, our mind listens to what we say.  And we tell it a lot of bad things, like we can't.  And it believes you.

New to this kick ass thing called working from home?  I have been at it for awhile and thought I would offer a few tips on how to keep focused and actually get things done. 

You need to know what is going on in your business finances.  It's the best way to make good decisions, especially when the world goes a little crazy. 

I know it's the apocalypse and all, but let's take a deep breath.
