Hop Off the Entrepreneurial Treadmill with These 10 Business Automation Tutorials

By Maria Peagler

Who runs your life: you or your business?

Entrepreneurs face often-insurmountable challenges: while some people thrive under that pressure (Marissa Mayer), others feel overwhelmed by the constant flux of change and a 24/7 culture.

Compound that stress during your busiest time of year and you're likely exploding over the small stuff.

So what's a budding (or seasoned) entrepreneur to do? 

Hop off the entrepreneurial treadmill:  learn to anticipate and manage your biggest business challenges (especially during those crazy seasons) by automating the small stuff that takes up so much of your time and brain power . . . 

 . . . leaving you to focus on the big rocks in your business, and your life.

How? With this entrepreneurial guide to automating your business — and your life — so you can enjoy both again. You'll learn how to:

  • automate social media (of course)
  • delegate work to a virtual assistant
  • manage your workload during the busy season
  • automate your blog posts (without looking a robot)
  • and much more

Bookmark this post and set a goal of executing one automation per month. Don't just read about it: DO IT.

I suggest starting with the easiest automation for you to set up: that way you'll have a quick win and be motivated to continue.
