Today on the Business With Impact podcast, I am so excited to introduce you to my friend April Perry from Learn | Do | Become! She works with an incredible community of more than 100,000 people to help those who are drowning in the details of life to develop simple systems within a supportive community so they can do what matters most, both personally and professionally. April is a total genius when it comes to organizing not just her business, but her personal life, her task list, her kids, and seriously, all the things!
As you listen to this episode (and it is a bit longer than usual, but you’ll understand why), here's what I'm going to invite you to do:
1) I'm going to invite you to listen to the whole episode once through to get the overall concepts that April teaches. These are going to be gold for you, not just in your business but in your personal life too.
2) Then what I'm gonna invite you to do is take a pen and some paper and go back through to listen again to make this your first “command central project.”
Now if you have no idea what I'm talking about, that's because you haven't listened the first time…So let's dive in together with April!
>> At 7:29, after sharing about her backstory and how she became such an expert at organizing, April answers one of the top questions I see all the time from busy entrepreneurs: “How do you keep everything organized, all in one place, so that when you're working you can focus on work, but when you're with the family you can focus on family?”
>> At 14:54, after discussing calendars and inboxes, April clarifies a very common misconception: the difference between projects and routines. While we may *think* we know the difference, too many people actually don’t know what the difference is and end up putting their projects on their ever-growing, daily to-do lists (which is actually counterproductive, yikes!).
>> At 22:26, we talk about a classic entrepreneur problem and how to overcome it: the “shiny object syndrome,” where many business owners tend to see or implement something new in their business before finishing the last new task or project they were working on, all because they *think* they need to implement every great business idea or take every great business course.
>> At 30:06, April answers the question: How do you do it all? Is it possible to keep your home focused, tidy, and peaceful while still working hard in your business? Can you be the woman who “does it all?” And if so, how do you practically do that?
