EP 345: Putting Your Business In Maintenance Mode With ScaleSpark Founder Susan Boles

38 minutes

Last week, we took our first trip of this Hot Vax Summer. And later this month, we're driving out to Montana to enjoy a month in the mountains again. We'll still be working but the business will largely be in maintenance mode.

Which brings me to today's topic. When Tara and I decided I'd take over for her this month and explore the topic of taking a break, I immediately knew the first person I wanted to talk to.

My friend and YHM podcaster Susan Boles. Susan is the founder of ScaleSpark and the host of Break The Ceiling.

She has an eye for efficiency, systems, and automation that makes her the perfect candidate for talking about how to put a business in maintenance mode.

And, Susan, like many others, was forced to wrestling with the reality of building a business made for maintenance mode when the pandemic hit and schools closed.

During our conversation, you'll hear that story and why it's so important to her to have a business that runs in maintenance mode. You'll also hear how Susan can fall prey to shiny object syndrome and other distractions just like any other business owner, as well as how she's combating self-sabotage and how she balances work as a creative outlet with taking breaks.

Now, let's find out what works for Susan Boles!
