Meet Dahlia   

 

Starting her journey as a photographer, she soon discovered she couldn’t keep up with the admin side and forgot why she became a photographer in the first place. This led her to become a virtual assistant helping others with their pain points and now wants to automate your workflows, and help you create a business that feels effortless to manage & scale at The System Strategy Academy.

Knowing that something needed to change she always dreamed of traveling the world but would never be able to step away from my business if I didn’t act. A few short months later, I became a virtual assistant and realized SO many other photographers shared in these same pain points and had similar dreams as mine but they were just as overwhelmed and burned out.

And so, The System Strategy Academy was born! My time as a photographer and VA has shaped my business and truly, I don’t want anyone else to experience what I have walked through. It needs to be different. Let’s not wait to setup your system for when you realize you need something to change like I did. And while we’re at it, we’ll totally enjoy Starbucks coffee dates together, spontaneous dance parties, sharing about our favorite places to travel to, and so much more!

 

More From The Candid Conversation

8:37  I like my journey, I think is a non traditional one for most business owners. I came from a full time ministry position. And so I became a photographer while I worked in that role. And I was very like administrative very hands on. And I also did photography because I was like I need to make some extra money. And so that’s how my business came to be. But then my business started to grow. And then I was introduced to the virtual assisting world.

17:55  I always explain with the client experience process is what do you want your people to feel? What do you want to experience be like? It’s a really important piece. So I would even take a step back before I say, hey, have your email templates and have your contracts and have your invoices and all these things in one place. Write out your experience, like write out what you want somebody to experience in your business from the time they hit submit to your contact form, all the way to the point that that you’re asking them for a review.

21:53   Part of the service that my team and I offer is that we actually consider what your personality is in your system. Because again, I think it’s an often overlooked piece that you have to marry. You and your system have to work together, right? It has to work for you and your business.

30:59  An essential to me would be a CRM, I think you absolutely need one to have one. Just because your clients are what’s going to keep your business going, right? Oh, and if they don’t have a great experience, and if you feel like you’re dropping the ball on them all the time, that’s unfortunate!

39:01  Ticket to Freedom is it is like my baby, my labor of love over here. It is not just about a system set up. For us, it’s about impacting lives. And that is what we take pride in most because it has been the stories of our people that have really like shown us like, man, these are real pain points that people experience. I walk clients through them personally. I’m that statement. You can do big things.

41:39  People always say, Can you really do it all in two weeks? I’m like, We sure can. I always say to people, I’m like, are you ready to change your life in two weeks?

46:19  we actually offer three, six or 12 month ongoing support packages. And so it’s basically like, you get access to our team. It’s almost like I kind of equated to Apple care. Like when you almost like when you don’t need it, you don’t think you need it until you need it, right? And you’re like, oh, gosh, now I need this. Like, I wish I had it, you know what I mean? And we we wanted to solve that problem. We wanted to come alongside and say, Hey, we don’t leave you hanging after it.

 

Episode Takeaways Worth Repeating

 

Transform Your Business with Automation + Workflows!

Don’t wait to setup a system until you realize you need one.

The way someone else sets up their system will not necessarily work the same for you.

When considering which system to pick for you business, always remember that it has to work for both you and your business. It can’t just be one or the other.

There is such thing as poorly executed workflows

Start with a CRM first and then choose more systems to add.

For over 40 years I’ve had the honor of capturing love stories as a wedding photographer for fabbo couples in authentic moments from coast to coast. Along the way I’ve met some of the most talented and hard-working business owners, many of whom I’m proud to call friends. Working alongside them, the conversations we shared often turned to burnout, frustration, and the loss of excitement, they felt their purpose was gone.

It’s those conversations that led me here today, ready to cheer you on. I’m on a mission to empower you to make an impact as the CEO of your business.

I help ambitious creatives build a sustainable business that they love & their clients love more is my joy. Because when you do well, you can do good!
