One of the most frequent questions I get is about what kind of planning system I use and how I manage to run my business without getting overwhelmed. In today’s episode, I’m speaking with my friend Maddie Peshong about why that question is so much more than just a matter of a digital vs. paper planner; it asks why so many entrepreneurs struggle to find a system that works for them. Maddie and I are diving into the root causes behind small business owners’ struggles with schedules, plus what our current routines and systems look like and what’s especially working for us.
