Because this is our first episode of the new year, we wanted to talk about a topic that many of us are thinking about right now regarding our businesses which is how we can improve the way we do business to make more money and better serve our clients. One of the best ways to become more efficient and consistent is using systems and processes. We have a guest on with us this week who is as big of a systems nerd as I am. She is Whitney Shindelar, owner of Undiscovered Sunsets and host of her podcast Masters in Travel.
