Creating and implementing business systems into your business has its rewards. The best reward is having flexibility and freedom in your business so you can focus on other aspects of business and life, while the systems work for themselves. When it comes to business, systems can be self-made or you can simply use and implement the systems that are already on the market.
Self-made business systems are your own developed methods or signature way of doing things in your business. For example, a checklist, which your employee can use to review each packaged product before it, is shipped to customers. Or even batch creating your content.
Systems that are already on the market are programs such as Leadpages, Mailchimp, and Asana. These types of programs have already been designed by tech gurus and the results they give is particular. All you have to do is sign-up and implement the systems into your business.
However, how do you know when you need business systems in place? My answer is when you feel overwhelmed. The feeling of overwhelm is one of the first signs that your business needs to get organized and that creating and implementing business systems can be a great place to start. If you have been running your business since the beginning of the year and you are at that place of feeling overwhelmed, it is time to do a mid-year systems check-up to get your business organized.

To begin your mid-year systems check-up to get your business organized, there are 4 simple steps that you can use to organize the business.
1. Take inventory
Take inventory of all the systems that you are currently using. Determine if you are using too much or not enough. If you have no systems in place for your business then this step will be an easy skip over for you.
2. Make a list
Make a list of all the tasks in your business that you think or know for certain that could be automated or run more smoothly if you would get organized. Know what you need to keep your business going when you cannot. All those things should be on this list.
Research what systems are already in the marketplace that you can simple signup for and implement it into your business. If they are no systems in the marketplace then develop a self-made system, such as a checklist or project planning worksheet for when you are doing certain tasks.
4. Focus on what works for you
This step is really important as many of us are prone to asking our business besties for tips on how they do certain things. But the reality is what works for their business, may not work for you. Especially, if you and your friend are in completely opposite business industries or even have a different business model.
After completing your mid-year systems check-up to get your business organized, ensure that systems that you have in place for your business can work for you. More specifically they can work for you, while you do more work or even take a break to rest and refuels.
When considering using business in your business, think about how can it change the results of your business and if you continue feeling overwhelmed in business, how far can you go mentally stretch yourself. If the answers are not good then you should begin to create and implement systems into your business.
