Systems Made Simple™

Did you start your online business with the dream of being your own boss, only to wake up one day and realize you’re working harder now than ever before? If you answered yes, chances are you’re an overworked entrepreneur who’s lacking one of the four key systems needed to build a business that runs on autopilot… and right now, your business is running you. Time, energy, and effort are limited resources, so when you depend solely on these to scale a business, you cap your income, influence, and impact. But true visionary leaders operate differently, because they know that inconsistent lead flow and revenue isn’t a reflection of your messaging, your expertise, or your skillset — it’s a problem that goes much deeper, and (lucky for you) is a simple fix. As a Forbes-featured business systems expert and Founder of the EffortLESS Life®, Courtney Elmer is here to show you how to get the right systems, structure, and support in place so you can scale to the $1M milestone and thrive in your zone of genius as the visionary leader of your company.There’s a reason this podcast is globally ranked among the top 1.5% best business podcasts in the world — and it isn’t because of the industry leaders we bring to you here on the show, but because of the systems they reveal that will help you succeed in today’s competitive digital landscape. It’s time for a new way to work…The question is, are you ready?

      If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

      Bone Valley

      Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
