Today’s guest is Christy Lingo, host of the “The Cocktails & Containers” podcast.
Christy started her business, where she organizes her clients’ homes to remove the clutter. She is now starting a coaching business to help Mom’s focus on being entrepreneurs while still being a Mom.
Controlling the Control Freak: Christy is trying to let go of her “control freak” and bringing on processes so she can grow her new business. Having these processes will help you hand off these items to a Virtual Assistant (VA). Christy is bringing systems like Loom (desktop video recording app), so you can communicate quickly and efficiently.
Scheduling Text Messages: Christy is scheduling text messages through an app, so she doesn’t have to risk forgetting when you have those 2 am thoughts, she can type the text, but it will send the message during business hours. (This is an Android feature)
Top Lesson She’s Learned: You don’t know it all. Get a business coach. Christy worked hard and taught herself everything. But she found that having a coach to look objectively at what she was doing was a huge benefit and lesson she learned. Get someone better than you to help you do more!
Let it go! The struggle when to stop tweaking and tweaking notes and emails. Stop and post it. It doesn’t have to be 100%. 80% is ok in most cases.
Bonus tip for parents from Christy: Wake up a little earlier. It will change your life!
