Simplify Your Business with Marissa Roberts | Episode 84

by | 14 Nov 2022 | Podcast | 0 comments

My mission is to make running a business as pain free as possible. I love to uncomplicate the complicated and I’m a sucker for anything that can shrink a ten step process down to a couple of steps and get the same or even better outcome.

My guest in this episode is Marissa Roberts – a busy mum and business owner who only works 2 hours a day – that’s right, 2 hours! She loves helping other women simplify their businesses and their lives so they too can work less and enjoy life more.

She has some gold to share with you in this episode, including:

  1. How Marissa was able to simplify her business and life by working just 10 hours a week
  2. The tools and systems Marissa uses to automate her business and save her precious time
  3. How she utilises her website Contact Page to her reduce the number of emails she receives

“I’m not really that naturally organised. It was motherhood that awakened a really big passion in me to become organised”

Marissa is also the host of the Simpler Business Podcast.
