This week, I interviewed Elinor Predota, who is in a pretty niche industry (nontraditional weddings), but whose insights apply no matter what type of service-based business you’re in. Unfortunately, the video didn’t come out, but there’s still audio!
Listen to the audio:
- Road test your systems. No matter how good they look on paper, it doesn’t matter if the systems don’t work in the real world.
- Communication templates! Stop reinventing the wheel–just create some templates. Elinor goes over all the ways this repeatedly saves her bacon in the interview.
- Have a system for when they say no, too. This lets everything come full circle and ends things on a positive note.
