  • How virtual assistance & modern online tech can save you money
  • Importance of digital marketing
  • Zapier and other automation tools
  • The Importance of delegating with clarity





“Normally, between the different workflows, I would say it normally starts from your scheduling tool or however the lead enters your funnel.”

“A zap can look like this: when I get a new thing in program A, I want it to do this other thing in program B. So the first part is called the trigger and the second part is the action and zapier will run the workflow automatically based on the trigger without you having to do anything”

“I use so many Zaps myself, so really it’s a matter of asking yourself ‘What do I do every single day that makes me wanna pull my hair out; I don’t want to do it over and over again and so how can I automate this?”’

“Automate, delegate and focus on only what you can do.”

“There’s just so much powerful work that can be done, so many solutions but we need clarity, super clarity, about what we’re trying to accomplish so that we land right on the dot.”

About the Author

As a newly single father of two from MI, he struggled to start over as a paint contractor in FL, going door to door. His situation was so bad, even the IRS had mercy on him.

 Feeling completely hopeless, he remembered the story of King Solomon praying for wisdom. Could it be so easy? 

He felt he had absolutely nothing to lose. So, as a bankrupt, divorced, high school dropout, single father of 2 young kids, now living 1250 miles away from all friends and family, started to pray for wisdom.
 And while he continues to wait for the wisdom to arrive, what did come was an insatiable desire to learn and read books… 
Thanks to God for giving him the burning passion to read books, and attend seminars, (oh and winning the wife lottery) he not only cracks the success code and overcomes the struggle, but also streamlines his painting business in less than 3 years, published a how to book, then sold the company. Now he leads a business coaching company for painting contractors so he can help other businesses, like yours, to do the same. Hear more... Or
