Ever wonder how other big-time businesses run? What a Director of Operations actually does? Maybe you’ve been thinking about scaling up for a while, but don’t really know where to start?
You can’t ignore the back-end pieces that have to work together and flow smoothly in order to build a brand, grow a movement or disrupt an industry. If the Operations side of your business is a mess, putting out fires will always take priority… leaving no room for creative innovation, fun visibility or networking with powerhouse peers (or wannabe peers).
Unlike other shows — this one will feature:
💥 Zero Fluff or Padding – We’re not stretching 15 minutes of content out over an hour
💯 Super Effective Strategies – Proven strategies used by myself and other biz owners
😆Continue the Convo! – A community to share tips, templates, and more depth
Every week on my podcast, we’re going to share actionable strategies — that you can use in your own biz — on what makes awesome businesses really work.
I’ll be joined by other CEOs and friends of the Director of Ops community, to get a sneak peek into their ops wins and losses. They’ll help you move your business forward.
We’re not here to just point out the holes… we’re here to plug them!
If you are ready to add or improve the operations in your business, continue the conversation by joining TheOpsInsiders.com. This is our mighty community where we will share tips, trainings, tutorials and special interviews after the podcast ends.
