Is your company fighting the good fight? In the first place, what does it mean to fight the good fight?
In today’s A Week In Review with Jaime and Sara, we dive into how to Fight the Good Fight. Together, they share their personal and professional challenges, updates, and the exciting things to come in Bottleneck Distant Assistants.
Fighting the Good Fight
Jaime and Sara start the discussion by defining their interpretation of fighting the good fight. Jaime defines it as doing everything with intention and integrity. Sara agrees and add that you should be authentic, not just with your clients but also with your team.
Being who they are all the time lets Jaime and Sara have fun on all aspects of their work.
“What that means is to do everything with intention, be authentic, have integrity and run your business and your life honestly, you know? Don’t be trying to cut corners, don’t try to use anybody. Just fight the good fight. Be one of those people in the Good Fight Army.” – Jaime Jay
Being Selfish is Not Always a Bad Thing
Sara talks about the challenges when a client has so many demands, that it becomes detrimental to the business. So as much as it pains them to do it, they had to put their interests first. Jaime explains that it is not a bad thing to be selfish if your intentions are good. At the end of the day, you have to take care of the company first before you take care of others.
“Take care of yourself first, so that you can take care of others. It’s the same in business: take care of the business first so you can take care of others and get people on board with you to fight that good fight.” – Jaime Jay
Workflows: A Living, Breathing Aspects of the Business
For Jaime and Sara, workflows have become a great way to streamline the work for the company. Not only does it improve performance by having a standard to follow for those concerned, it also empowers employees to have the capacity to handle tasks on their own with minimal supervision. This has also let new employees hit the ground running faster than those without a proper workflow, systems, and processes in place.
“We call our systems and processes living, breathing aspects of our business because we’re constantly updating. We started doing processes a couple years ago, and we have not stopped. It’s part of our job, and it’s an ongoing process.
The beauty of it is as we grow, and we are growing right now, someone else that comes in to take over a position knows exactly what their what their job duty is exactly like.” – Jaime Jay
