Delegate everything in your online business
I’m gonna show you how to delegate everything in your online business. Read until the end for a bonus tip that’ll help you avoid a critical mistake and help you delegate 10 times faster.
Now, here’s a trigger warning. I’m gonna use the word systemize a few times. Some of you love the thought for others, it’s a highly effective sleep aid.
But here’s the reason systems are so important. You need to document so you can delegate. I learned this the hard way in my corporate career. I’ve always had large teams of people working with me, and then eventually for me. I also accumulated a wide range of tech, marketing, and sales experience. So when I started my own online business as a side hustle, I was going to do everything.
As the business started to get some traction. I hit a wall pretty quickly though. I was still working 50 hours a week in corporate and 30 on my online business. There wasn’t nearly enough time for me to do everything. My online business needed. I knew I had to hire and fast. I started looking for virtual assistants because that’s what all the viewers said to do.
I cover why that’s a bad idea in another video. Nevertheless, that’s what I did, and that’s when the lack of systems hit me in the face. I had a couple of virtual assistants, but every time I asked them for something like, please build a lead magnet funnel, or please repurpose this piece of content, I either got back a load of basic questions or work that was away off base.
It wasn’t because the VAs were bad people, it was because I had no systems and processes to guide them. That’s the balancing side of the equation of cost versus quality. Sure. If I hired a specialist at a hundred thousand dollars a year, they could work completely independently and ask the right question to get me perfect output.
But a VA charging $8 an hour like we all want, typically doesn’t have that ability. So how do you handle that Without spending $500,000 a year on specialists? You systemize and document everything so that lower cost team members can deliver what you need. Make sure to watch to the end, because there’s a critical mistake you can avoid if you use the right strategy.
So at this point, the standard guidance would be to define the essential systems of your business, like traffic, marketing and sales. Then break those down into processes, procedures and checklists. Boring. And unless you’re already at seven figures. You’re probably missing many of the essential systems and processes anyway.
So you wouldn’t have anything to document. But think about the transformation of your days and results once everything in your business. From planning to content creation. To promotions and support. Is all documented and you’re able to delegate some or all. It’s the key for growing from time challenge creator. To team leading CEO to be able to stay in your zone of genius and working on CEO level activities a hundred percent of the time.
Instead of logging into Canva and spending 30 minutes trying to create graphics and schedule social media posts. What if you could just simply assigns SOP number 137 to your team to go execute. And hit, had all the step-by-step instructions they needed to do that. How much faster could your business grow if you were free to focus all your time. On strategy core content and converting your audience to customers. But how do you get everything systemized and documented, especially if you only have parts of your business up and running?
Well, here’s the secret. All the cool kids in the seven Figure Club already know. You don’t need to create all your systems, processes, and procedures yourself. From scratch. In fact, you shouldn’t, even if you have all the free time in the world. Why? Well, let me ask you this. If you needed to build and launch a rocket. Would you start writing all the processes and procedures from scratch?
What if you could leverage NASA or SpaceX’s proven systems instead? Wouldn’t you rather start with and build on all the best practices from their experience? Both the successes and the tragic failures they learn from? It’s the same with online businesses. Your specific coaching course or membership content may be unique. And I hope it is. But you’re not the first or even the 10000th person. Creating a coaching course or membership.
Business proven systems, processes, and procedures already exist for everything from the hundreds of steps to build a website. To the hundreds of steps to build a webinar. To the hundreds of steps to run an ad campaign and everything else in online business needs. It’s a prime example of what I talk about a lot in my content.
Shifting your default question from. How do I do the task? To who can I find to do the task for me? Who not how. Now that you know, documented systems, processes, and procedures exist. You can ask who has these that I can leverage? One answer may be some of the courses and programs you’ve already invested in.
Some will have a few SOPs or checklists. Usually as bonuses that you can leverage. The challenge is they usually only cover a few things and you wind up with a haphazard set. In different platforms and formats. The best answer right now is our system vault. Inside our solo to virtual CEO program. We acquire, build and maintain a vault of hundreds of SOPs.

This is no easy task. In fact, it’s a large investment. As you know, tools and techniques change all the time. And keeping the vault up to date is a major undertaking. But the results make it worth far more than the investment. Instead of a mediocre webinar funnel process. We leverage a world class process.
