Systems and automation, systems and automation, systems and automation! Entrepreneurs hear about it all the time. We want to implement them into our businesses, but “How?” is the question that always comes up in our overflowing minds.
For those of you that need and want to automate your business, even more, you are going to love today’s guest. Mark Podolsky is the founder of LandGeek.com, and Frontier Equity Properties. He is the host of three podcasts, he has built his own SaaS products to automate his businesses and Mark has built an outsourcing team in the Philippines that runs on its own. Mark is a master at creating large-scale automated businesses where he only works three days a week and can take a month off of work whenever he wants.
Today, we will dive into how Mark did this and he gives us a huge list of software and programs he uses and recommends.
“I give myself a 30:1 Rule. Say for example it takes me 10 minutes to do that task. I will multiply that by 30, then budget that training time to teach somebody how to get rid of that 10 minutes for the rest of my life.” Mark Podolsky
