EP 12. VICTOR RAMIREZ: The Power Of Perfect Processes
How many times a week do you tell yourself that it’s time to get that inbox under control? It could be smelling like a fridge full of rotten vegetables and attracting flies, and you would still probably find a way to get around the house without looking at it.
The thing is, you probably already spend enough (read: WAY too much) time reading, sending, and responding to emails and messages, but the pile never gets any smaller.
The pressure to make yourself available to demands, queries, and well-meaning comments can make life feel infinitely less sunny and more stressful, but…
There IS a solution. Put down the Paper Bag of Hyperventilation, because you’re about to breathe a big sigh of relief.
The way out of the email vortex of doom is simple: put the right processes in place. And just where do you find the right processes? In the wise words of Victor Ramirez, that’s where. As a WordPress developer, designer, and Upwork freelancer extraordinaire, Victor knows a few things about managing time without losing your mind.
He’s also full of practical advice on taking the hassle out of daily processes (like responding to tedious emails) with the power of asynchronous communication. Yes, it’s a long word, but after this interview, it might just become one of your favorites – especially once you discover the magic of TextExpander.
In this episode of Profit and Impact, Victor lends me his toolkit for setting up healthy boundaries with clients, plus a few words of wisdom on boosting your online presence, and being satisfied, even when you don’t “have it all”.
So what’s this conversation REALLY about?
- The value of asynchronous communication
- The alignment between your client relationships and your love life
- How to choose the right clients, and setting the right boundaries
- How to reduce time-wastage with smart tools
Why you should listen
We all need a few extra hours in the day to get everything done, and although Victor’s advice won’t take care of your morning meeting or cook dinner for you, it might help things to run a little smoother. If you’d like more hours and less unimportant jobs on your to-do list, this is the episode for you.
You can quote me on that…
“It’s always a good time to be marketing.” – Victor Ramirez
“I’m not going to tell you why [you should work with me]. My TextExpander snippet [for] “why work with me” is “Google Victor Ramirez WordPress and then we can talk”.” – Victor Ramirez
