I have over a decade of experience with process improvement, development, and documentation. I am passionate about automating your work wherever possible!
- Business Process Consultation
I have many years of experience in creating new processes and streamlining existing processes. It is way too much fun for me to work through this problem solving process and create the best systems for you and your business. Process creation and improvement is such an important step for businesses, and with my experience and passion for it, I would love to talk and learn how I can help you!My typical process starts by just talking to you about what it is that you do, what your short- and long-term goals are, and what your processes look like now. It’s good for me to get hands-on access so that I can see what you’re working with and make it as easy and efficient as possible. I want to help you organize your files, improve any documents you have in your process, and automate, automate, automate wherever possible! (Automate should be my middle name.) I love creating customer relation management systems and helping you to manage your projects and leads.
- Process/Systems Automation
It doesn’t feel good doing the same thing over and over. You’re sitting there performing these redundant tasks thinking, “All this manual labor! There has to be a better way!” Whenever I get that feeling, I start brainstorming and venture out in search of a solution.
In seeking out ways to automate, my passion for Microsoft Excel increased ten-fold! My favorite data tool became way more powerful when I discovered the automation magic that is found in coding macros using VBA. I reduced the time spent on tasks by up to 90% and eliminated human error — and started getting tasks done all at the touch of a button! It was such a fun and amazing skill to learn and it helped IMMENSELY.
Now that I am virtually assisting entrepreneurs and business remotely, the opportunity for automation has just expanded! There are some amazing tools out there that connect with almost every platform. It is so exciting to brainstorm, set up a solution, and watch this automation work magic for your business.
- Fully Comprehensive Procedural Documentation
In my very first corporate position, and without knowing how valuable it was, I created procedural documentation for the tasks that I performed in the finance department. I wasn’t asked to do so, but my goal was essentially this: if I got hit by a bus, I would want someone to be able to walk in off the street, read my procedural documentation, and be able to take over my job.This combined my skills of writing and formatting, my ability to think about the big picture, and my flare for perfectionism as I wrote thorough, comprehensive procedural documentation to guide someone through each step of the process. And it was fun for me to do!
So I kept doing it at every job thereafter. Eventually someone along my career path let me know what a valuable skill it is, so I started incorporating it in my resume. That actually became a huge point of interest amongst potential employers!
If you are looking to create new hire documentation, create procedural documentation for your daily or monthly processes, or have any other documentation needs, please let me know! I would love to hear how I can help you.
