Episode #0063 Level Up Your Business Through Automation with Richard Schnitzel

 Featured in this week’s episode of The Productive Designer, host Crystal Collinson interviews entrepreneur Richard Schnitzel.

Richard owns and operates a done-for-you automation company helping 6 figure entrepreneurs build the automation they need to scale their business to 7 figures and beyond. In his previous career as a Mechanical Engineer he worked across all aspects of business from sales and estimating to project management and high-end design. He believes automation doesn’t have to be a dirty word and created the concept of “Authencious” Automation to help entrepreneurs level up their business through the power of technology. 

Crystal and Richard talked about leveraging your business with automation. Richard emphasizes the importance of understanding your primary business operations, and the workflows it entails. Then, he helps business owners figure out what type of work they want to free themselves from doing. From there, it enables him to translate what kind of automation is fit for their business. Where he explains to them the full scope of why automation is necessary.

Richard shares that improving efficiency and efficacy are the two main goals of business automation. The process should make workflows and processes more organized, streamlined, and less stressful. Also, he does not guarantee that during the primary stages it will be smooth-sailing. It is like adjusting to new habits, taking detours, reassessing the effectiveness of your procedures towards achieving your desired outcome.

So join Crystal and Richard as they discuss business automation and how it will help to leverage your business operations. Then “Do something today that your future self will thank you for”. And try automating at least one thing in your business.
