A Simple Method for Creating Business Systems

Brandon VaughnIt’s no secret that developing good business systems is the best way to consistently deliver a quality product or service to customers.  It’s the basis of the franchise business model, and it has been said many, many, times in just about every book on small business management ever published.  So why is it that so many local small business owners still don’t have good systems in their business?

Well, one reason is that creating them can take a lot of time and energy.  That’s why I invited Brandon Vaughn, the CEO of Automate Grow Sell, to come on my podcast and talk about a simple method for creating business systems that he uses with his coaching clients.

Brandon has a strong background as a local business owner.  In 2011, when an illness prevented his father from continuing to run his company, Brandon purchased the business with a promise to keep it running in order to support his parents. In under 6 seasons, Brandon grew the business from zero to over 70 employees, increasing revenues from $8k/mo to over $450k/mo. In 2017, he was awarded the S.B.A Small Business Person of the Year award for the state of Oregon.

Today, Brandon helps thousands of small business owners systematize and scale their companies through his company Automate Grow Sell, which provides personalized mentorship and training programs for small business owners.

In my interview with Brandon, we cover a number of concepts that are very important to understand for anyone trying to run a successful local service business, including:

  • What the “Bus Factor” is and why it’s important for you to know
  • What four departments every local small business must have
  • Why your employees need “AIR” if you want them to stick around and keep working for you
  • How to begin creating systems for your business starting today using a simple method
