Ep8. Planning, automation and productivity, with Alison Matthews



Suzanne talks to Alison Matthews of Virtuali. Alison specialises in helping entrepreneurs automate processes around running course / events (online / face to face) to be a virtual set of hands, eyes & ears. She is a whizz at productivity coaching & how to incorporate it into your business and every day life!

They talk about 

– automation and planning for an easier working life
– collaboration not competition with other VAs
– Alison’s love of wild swimming and connecting with nature
‘You have to have a helicopter overview of what’s happening in the business, how it works and what it’s all about so as you can really see what areas can be more automated and productive.’
13:16 ‘To me, planning is a massive part of being productive’
20:47 ‘When you find that niche of what you want to do, it creates lots of energy for you, and then when you talk about it, because you talk about it in a passionate way, other people buy into it as well’
