Why Systems Rock! (And Why Opportunity Passes You By) - Episode 13 of insights4pros

In this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Phil Gerbyshak, a Master of Modern Selling, Author, and Professional Speaker, about the power of systems in growing a sustainable business as a thought leader or professional speaker.

During our conversation, we delved into the intricate world of thought leadership, the business of being a professional speaker, and the importance of having systems in place to support your endeavors. Here are some key takeaways from our discussion:

Business of Show Business: We explored the challenges of running a thought leadership business and the need for systems to help automate and streamline crucial tasks such as managing contracts, tracking leads, and organizing marketing efforts.

The SpeakerFlow Approach: Phil shared how Speakerflow works closely with thought leaders, speakers, trainers, coaches, authors, and more to implement systems that empower them to stay in their zone of genius and in their flow state.

The Power of CRM: We also discussed the significant impact of utilizing a CRM system. Phil emphasized the value of logging conversations and setting up follow-up tasks in a CRM, demonstrating how this single element can exponentially increase revenue and streamline operations.

I encourage you to explore the insights in our conversation for yourself.
