Is Your Overwhelm an Operations Issue? with Melissa Morris

The Growing your Team Podcast: Episode 165


As a small business owner, it’s easy to fall into the habit of overwhelm. We continue to add more to our plates little by little as our companies grow. Eventually, we must stop the overwhelm and transition into a sustainable business.

To do this, we must first identify what is causing the stressful feelings in our business. It’s not always as easy as saying there’s too much on your plate and hiring a team member to help. Your business might be built in a way that will cause you overwhelm no matter how many employees are on your team. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. The overwhelm can stop.

Melissa Morris helps business owners look at their own workflows to understand what is effective vs. what isn’t. Melissa’s expertise allows us to see what common mistakes people make when building their companies and how to fix those areas so your business can flow and scale easily.
