Great podcast! Really great insights into a) the foundations of a business (documentation) and separating and fixing systems.
Really great – thanks.
Hmmmm, I wonder how this can be applied to personal workflows? There’s obviously the benefit of systemizing your morning/evening routines, but as someone who works alone a lot, I wonder what other ways you might be able to apply this kind of thinking in one’s personal life?
Oh my! Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention. What a fabulous interview, congrats Zak! I am particularly grateful for Sam’s generosity – time, knowledge, resources and experience. What I gleaned from this one interview will add significant value to many aspects of my life and that of my colleagues, students, clients – AND long suffering husband and family of this long term business owner welcoming her own breakthrough!
This was a very good podcast, I especially liked how it was emphasized the insights he gained. I read a book called clarity on insights, that book changed me personally. Nice job AE!
