How To Juggle Multiple Clients Without Getting Overwhelmed

Rena McDaniel's web design and maintenance business grew fast. She had 47 ongoing Wordpress maintenance clients with no business systems or organization in place.

She knew she had to do something to organize her business quickly or the success she was suddenly experiencing wouldn't last and she'd lose clients.

Rena joined my course, Organize & Automate, so she could streamline her business in the best and fastest way possible. And guys, her results are incredible!

  • She has freed up two hours every day.

  • She’s way less stressed and much easier for her husband to be around.

  • She’s producing a better level of design work

  • Her clients LOVE her process.

Here’s what makes me even happier about her results: she was hesitant about joining my course. She’d taken lots of courses in the past and never finished them. Yet she finished Organize & Automate and it completely changed her business.

Today I want you to meet Cat, the designer behind Gatto Web Studio and one of my Organize & Automate course students!

Cat was ready to stop playing small and working on blog designs only. She was ready to design for businesses and brands, take on larger projects and charge more for them. She was ready to level the heck up.

But she was also worried about the extra work that comes with taking on larger projects.

She wanted it to feel simple, not complicated. She wanted to be able to take on more than one large project at a time and handle it smoothly and stress-free.

That’s why she joined Organize & Automate.

If you’re ready to charge more for your design services and start taking on larger projects, Cat’s story will help you.

Map Out Your Step-By-Step Design Process

Map Out Your Step-By-Step Design Process

Designers- are you stumbling through your design process? Have you mapped out your process on paper (or onscreen), or have you never bothered to because you don't have time?

Here's the danger with having a process in your mind and not writing it down:

You forget things.

That email signature that's part of your design package? You totally forget it until the client points out that you haven't done it yet.

That logo that only includes two revision rounds? You complete four revision rounds without realizing because you don't tick them off as you go through them.

That training session you're meant to offer clients at the end of your project? You're left feeling stupidly unprofessional because your client had to remind you of it.

How To Create 10 Weeks Of Content In 5 Days

How To Create 10 Weeks Of Content In 5 Days

For years, I wrote my blog posts and newsletters on the day they went live.

I'd frantically think of something to write and then quickly hit send, forgetting to spell check and link check, just wanting to send something - anything!

Why did I leave things like content creation until the last minute like that?

Because I was unorganized and not in control of my time.

I changed my way of creating content, and I now have all my blog posts and newsletters scheduled 5 weeks ahead of time.

The key to getting ahead and scheduling blog content weeks in advance? Batch weeks.

A batch week is an entire week dedicated to ONE task. A week where you'll focus on doing ONE thing and nothing else. 

If content creation is a core part of your marketing then spending one week on it every X weeks is no big deal. If it isn't, you can have a batch day instead.

According to Harvard Business Review, when you switch away from a primary task to do something else, you’re increasing the time it takes to finish that task by an average of 25 per cent. So when you use a batch week or day to focus on ONE task, you'll complete your task faster and to a better quality!
