Today I’m with Ashley Gartland about simplifying and delegating in your business. We talk a little bit about how you can simplify your business and the five steps she has to help you get to what you want to be spending time in your business and how you can make space for the things you want in your life.

We talk about the best place to start simplifying if you’ve been running your business for a while and then we dive into the topic of delegation. We talk about using delegating to make your work load easier and save time, how you think about delegating whether you’ve done it before or not. Ashley gives us an assignment to help us figure out which tasks we want to hold onto and which we can delegate to tools, systems, or contractors. She also talks about how simplifying in your business can really benefit you and why it’s so important.
