You started a biz because you wanted something... maybe freedom, fame, money, a better solution to a problem you saw.
No matter the why, you jumped in with guns a'blazin' and got to work.
You knew it would be, well, some work. No duh, eh?
So you dug in. Put your heart and soul into this idea. And kept on pluggin' away.
Until work is all you have.
Your partner has given up on you. And is threatening to find someone else ASAP.
Your kids haven't a clue who you are.
Your friends no longer ask if you want to go for a beer.
Your parents leave cryptic messages like "are you alive?" and you don't have time to answer them because there are so many blazing fires to put out.
In fact, you just ordered a cot from Amazon so you can grab a few minutes of shut eye in your office.
And forget having a life outside work.
Can you relate? Are you there right now?
MamaRed (Jerilynne) Knight and asking the RIGHT questions, to the implement the
using the RIGHT technology
is how I help YOU
while increasing profits
and reducing costs.
It doesn't have to be this way.
That's where I come in.
I confess. I'm an addict.
A "do it faster, easier, and with less stress" addict that absotively despises you working harder than you have to.
If you're ready to have a life outside your biz NOW and are ready to invest in doing things a different way, let's become success partners and get you celebrating life again.
We'll start with the RIGHT questions so we know what YOU want.
(Believe me, it's not "what blah blah blah tool should I use?")
Then we'll look at what you really want this biz to be, what is most important to you. Maybe it's...
...making more money
...having more freedom to chill out somewhere tropical with beautiful breezes
...responding more quickly to potential customers
...quelling the complaints by getting on the phone with someone
...quickly creating content that is on point with a consistent message that drives revenue
...something else we uncover during our Phase 1: Plan sessions
Then (and only then), do we go to Phase 2: Prep and sketch out solutions, evaluate the pros and cons, and look for ways technology can take over some of the boring, backend crap so you and your team can focus on things only HUMANS can do.
Now you have the RIGHT systems and the RIGHT technology in place, and detailed instructions written down so you can get the hell out of your office and re-introduce yourself to those who've forgotten your face!
You become a "LegallyLazee" Owner who can enjoy life AND business again.
It's possible even if not the sexiest stuff in the world!
I'm not gonna lie to you. It takes some time and lots of question-asking and soul-searching and prioritizing. It takes discussions and revamping to cut those costs and increase your revenue.
AND it's worth it because it can turn your 80-hour week into a 20-hour week.
And no, you and your team don't have to do all the heavy lifting.
As part of the planning process, we'll also take a look at how your content is created, stored, managed, and updated. Whether it is a proposal for a million bucks or a social media post sharing your goodies with the world.
Your content is a HUGE asset, right behind your team. We'll leverage that too to get the most bang for your buck (which is why the Repurposing...on Purpose™ system is part of my bag of tricks).
You may be asking...
"Can't you just do this for me?"
And the answer is YES (and I do need some info from the leadership team to do the best job).
Or you may be asking...
"Could you train my team to do this so I'm not always relying on someone else?"
The answer is a resounding "hell yeah!" I can train your team as we help you regain the freedom you crave.
Since I'm designing a solution for YOU and YOURS, we'll find the right mix of Done for You or Done with You or even Done by You.
Started in 1988 as a sole proprietorship doing desktop publishing, page layout, and technical writing, Tame TheBeasties was originally incorporated as Simply Written and as my clients' needs and my experience evolved, so did the name of the company. First to JLKnight Enterprises, Inc., then to Tame TheBeasties...which is what I've truly been doing since the late 70s after tackling my first bit of technology to get payroll out in time.
Located across the country, or around the world? No problemo. We'll use those amazing workhorses of technology, like conference lines, Zoom, Slack, and Skype to get things done.
I've written, edited, and formatted thousands of pages of documentation, training materials, and online help materials. And I've turned short tips and little bits of content into a series of YouTube videos, great training programs and social media posts that build your biz without weighing down your team 24/7.
I've sketched out processes on napkins and created detailed flow diagrams, evaluated what steps could be dropped, what could be automated, and what needs step-by-step instructions so your staff can take care of the stuff locked away in your overloaded brain.
As a self-taught LegallyLazee Owner, I've evaluated, learned, documented, and demystified technology for companies ranging from one person consultancies to large, multinational corporations, and everything in between.
It all depends on what YOU need...we work together to custom-design the best solution and approach for YOU.
Although I use the knowledge gained from over 25+ years as a consultant to build a solution for you, I don't believe in one-size-fits all approaches.
There isn't any such thing! You are different, so is your company!
Let's find the RIGHT solution. One that meets YOUR vision and goals.
