It’s the stuckness, not the systems

It’s the stuckness, not the systems

Last week, I had a monthly accountability and action session with a long-term client.

He’d just hired a new employee and there was work to be done.

As this client was introducing me to his new hire, he said, “Angie helps with…uh…um…hmmm.”

He stopped and started a few times.

Finally, he sat up straight, looked right at his employee and said, “Angie helps us get unstuck. Wherever we have a question, an issue, or mental block about some action we need to take, Angie sees it and helps us through it. Sure, she helps with systems and organization and all that, but really, she gets us unstuck so we can take action.”


Now, if there was ever an interesting way to describe what I do, that’s it.

I sell “systems, processes, and organzation” only because I don’t know how to sell “I get you unstuck and taking action.”

Being a partner with clients is gratifying work. Helping their employees, facilitating open communication, and getting processes written down so everyone can get great work done is the best way to spend a day.

There’s somewhere you’re stuck, right?

And you’re thinking, “Enough is enough.”

I’m here to tell you, you’re not making forward progress (at all or fast enough) because of that stuckness.

It’s not the systems that are broken. Or maybe it is. But it’s the stuckness that keeps you from analyzing and taking action on those systems, writing down those processes, or focusing on client communication. Or getting out of email overwhelm. Or finally getting your office organized.

Let’s get you unstuck, shall we?



P.S. If you’ve already worked with me and I’ve helped you get unstuck, and you think twice a week is just too often to hear from me, I can add you to a once a month list (you’ll have to re-opt in). Reply with ONCE a MONTH and I’ll send you an invite.

P.P.S. And if hearing from me at all is a bother, you can easily and quickly unsubscribe at the bottom of this email. I’ll be sad to see you go, and I understand how precious and limited your time and attention are. If what I’m offering isn’t of interest to you, then save yourself the time of hitting the delete key twice a week and just unsubscribe.

P.P.P.S. In 39 days, I’m shutting down the business for a month-long rafting trip on the Grand Canyon. My business model will be changing and prices will be increasing when I return. If you’d like to work with me, now’s the time.
