On today’s show, I have Business Operations Consultant Jordan Gill who is located in Dallas, Texas.
While Jordan primarily works with entrepreneurs and creating systems for their business so they can be more effective and efficient, she shares SO many great tips during this episode that can be applicable to anyone. After listening, you’re going to be inspired to systemize EVERYTHING in your life so you can spend more time doing what you love, spending time with family and friends, or whatever it is you want to do with more free time!
We chat about inbox management, how to not be completely overwhelmed with your inbox, advice on setting boundaries in your professional and personal life, decision fatigue and how to fight it, how she works a 3 day work week (and brings in a steady income) and so much more!
Excited for you to tune in and hope you enjoy!
