Old habits are difficult to break, but often these are the challenges that stand between you and success. Running an organized business means putting the end goal top of mind and then building the systems, structures, habits, and behaviors required to reach the goal. BOD™ BOSS Helen Austen shares her insights into running an organized business. 

In this episode we learn:

  • creative people and the tendency to be disorganized.
  • implement one step at a time
  • have a clear and documented system for everything!
  • fully commit to each system and take time to assess if it works
  • broad and simple is the rule
  • overwhelm is normal especially if there are many missing or incomplete systems



Being disorganized is not a character flaw. It is a skill that can be learned.
