Processes and Systems in a Business is the title of Episode 15 of Success and Inner Growth. This topic sounds a bit boring, but it is eminently important if you want to establish control over your own life with the help of your own business.

You can describe all businesses as a systems, comprising several subsystems and many processes. I already discussed that idea in episode 6 in the context of leverage. Check it out.

Understanding your business as a system will help you to bring stability and predictability into your business, and by extension into your life. In episode 13 we discussed the huge importance of stability in the context of the hierarchy of human needs.
