Part of building a successful online business is designing a system that allows you to work effectively and efficiently as your business grows. And to build a highly effective system, you need to leverage a variety of tools. But, with literally hundreds of thousands of tools available, many entrepreneurs feel overwhelmed and procrastinate on finding the right tools to add to their business arsenal.


This is what I call the Tools, Tactics & Template Phase of entrepreneurship - and staying in this phase can have a dramatic, negative impact on the growth and success of your business.


In this episode, I explain why you shouldn’t get stuck in the Tools, Tactics & Template Phase of online business and how this form of procrastination and analysis paralysis can hinder your ability to turn your passion into a profitable online business. I share the tools I use and how they have helped me grow my business to 7 figures. I explain how each of these tools work, what  you can expect to invest, and the features available in the free and paid plans. I also share how my team and I use these tools to collaborate and streamline operations to help keep my business running smoothly year after year.

“When you’re stuck in that phase of wondering what tools to use and you’re not moving forward in your business - that is not a good place to be.” - Sigrun
