Albert Einstein famously said, “Everything must be made as simple as possible. But not simpler.” When I think about that quote, I visualize stripping away aspects of my life and business until everything is clear and straightforward, stopping before I strip away the things that make my life and business great.

Much of what we do in our daily lives, whether it’s responding to emails, creating content, or meal-prepping, can be simplified and streamlined using systems.

We’ll be covering marketing tools, systems for keeping your finances on track, even software to help you craft your novels. But today, we’re starting with project management, which I believe serves as your foundation.
