Scaling up your business without sacrificing quality and customer service is a complex, daunting challenge facing any business owner (yup, I’ve been there). You have the potential to grow, make more money, find new clients, and create a larger impact in the world, but setting up the systems you need to do so is a minefield. It doesn’t have to be though.

Kate Erickson knows just how to help you implement these systems. She is passionate and gifted in project management and has lived the entrepreneurial journey herself. Kate knows that this is one of the hardest parts of scaling up a business. As a creator, engager and implementer at EOFire she helps break down this process so that you can build the business that you always wanted to have.

On today’s exciting episode, we discuss how you can grow your business into something you are passionate about. We discuss what it means to take hold of your dreams and how to grow your business while also discovering how to effectively provide great customer service. I personally know the struggle of growing a business without sacrificing quality service. I sure wish I knew then what Kate talks about today.

Quotes

“I like to think of a project manager as being an orchestrator. It’s different when it’s you as the video producer who is responsible for that.” [6:35]

“The motivation or drive that I think people need to dig down and find is wanting to serve your clients bad enough. The awesome thing is is that when you can do that, you get to start charging more money. You’re going to be setting yourself apart from the other people out there.” [8:26]

“Are you living your perfect day? When you get up in the morning and you go to your studio and you do what you do, is that your perfect day? And if it’s not, then I challenge you to figure out what your perfect day is.”  [14:15]

“Challenge yourself. Take a step back. Get outside of your daily routine and think about what it would look like if you did something different one day” [15:25]

“For every time you have to do something that you don’t want to do, it’s taking time, bandwidth, energy, emotion away from what you’re truly meant to do.”   [21:40]
