Jonathan Stewart:

Foundations aren't meant to be dictated to you.

Jonathan Stewart:

You're not meant to be told what foundations are the correct foundations.

Jonathan Stewart:

If you look at the origin of the word foundations, it's all about laying

Jonathan Stewart:

the basis of and establishing to set to place to make, to lay the bottom of

Jonathan Stewart:

something and that is something that is incredibly important in your business.

Jonathan Stewart:

But it's got to be laid from a foundation of you.

Jonathan Stewart:

From the way that you work, not dictated to you by someone who

Jonathan Stewart:

doesn't understand all of the pieces and the way that you work.

Jonathan Stewart:

What is it that you love to do?

Jonathan Stewart:

How do you work best when you're helping your clients?

Jonathan Stewart:

Is it through one-to-one calls or is it through Voxer or other tools?

Jonathan Stewart:

Now there will be times where there are things you gotta do

Jonathan Stewart:

when you don't want to do them.

Jonathan Stewart:

That is obviously part of what you have in business.

Jonathan Stewart:

But when that happens, how can you make it as easy for you as possible?

Jonathan Stewart:

What foundation can you use to support you in doing something that you may not

Jonathan Stewart:

enjoy quite as much, and that allows you to get back to doing what you do love.

Jonathan Stewart:

What foundations can you put in place that fit the way that you work?

Jonathan Stewart:

A good example of this for me is this podcast.

Jonathan Stewart:

I adore making videos however, the amount of time, it takes

Jonathan Stewart:

me to edit it 's not fun.

Jonathan Stewart:

I don't enjoy it.

Jonathan Stewart:

Whereas this podcast allows me to just hit record.

Jonathan Stewart:

I don't have to worry about how I look and how I feel.

Jonathan Stewart:

I can just hit record and have it in here.

Jonathan Stewart:

I love that on previous episodes, I use tools to support me in that way.

Jonathan Stewart:

Currently I'm recording in de script, which means I just have to

Jonathan Stewart:

come in, open it up, press record.

Jonathan Stewart:

And I've also got preset.

Jonathan Stewart:

Things that just make life easier for me.

Jonathan Stewart:

So I press a couple of buttons.

Jonathan Stewart:

And automatically I have a publishable episode.

Jonathan Stewart:

Your foundations are based on the way that you work.

Jonathan Stewart:

And that starts from what you want, what you have and what you want to do.

Jonathan Stewart:

There are so many things that we have to do on a daily basis as business owners.

Jonathan Stewart:

And sometimes it's easy just to go, oh, I have to do this

Jonathan Stewart:

because somebody else told me to.

Jonathan Stewart:

Don't want to go it alone, reach out to me at simplicity.
