Exhaustion, overwhelm, and stress. These are a few of the things you might be feeling if you're trying to grow your business without the proper tools in place. My guest, Kristen Westcott, is an expert in project management and will be discussing how to set up systems to help you get organized and make your life easier. Today, she shares her opinions on features you need to look for in a project management system and compares three commonly-used tools: Trello, Asana, and ClickUp. She also gives us some great insights into time management, organizing tasks, and the dangers of attempting too many business strategies.

In this episode, we cover:

- Why project management systems are necessary for organizing your workload and providing one space to hold your business materials

- How project management tools can be used when you bring in support to grow your business

- The pros and cons of Asana, Trello, and ClickUp

- Assigning priority levels, subcategories, and deadlines to different tasks in your project management system

- How much time you should spend maintaining your systems once they are established

- The importance of having a "CEO Day" where you can focus on all the tasks you've been avoiding or pushing off to later dates

- When to touch base with clients and how to integrate that into your schedule

- How many business growth strategies you should be following at one time
