I’m obsessed with the book “Clockwork” by Mike Michalowicz (who also wrote “Profit First”). I read it the first weekend it came out last fall and it has revolutionized the way I look at my business.

When a mutual colleague offered to connect me with Adrienne Dorison, the co-founder of Run Like Clockwork™, I jumped at the chance to have her on the podcast.

As an entrepreneur, one of your most important roles is being the face and voice of your business, which means speaking at conferences and events, being a guest on podcasts and in other people’s groups, and appearing in the media.

However, I see this a lot with colleagues and clients: When they started their business, they had time for speaking and visibility. Then, as as they approach years 2, 3, 4 in their business, they are incredibly busy doing the work as their sales grow (those visibility seeds they planted in the beginning are paying off!). The problem is that now they’re neck deep in the business so they don’t have much time for speaking and visibility, which means they’re losing out on this proven marketing channel.

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Designing your business with operational efficiency
  • How you as the business owner are oftentimes the bottleneck
  • Specific tips on how to hand off work to others → this will give you more time for speaking and visibility
  • Giving team members ownership for decision making
  • How to do a time analysis so you can see where you’re spending your time and how to improve it
  • The kinds of speaking engagements Adrienne does
