Run Like Clockwork :: Optimize your business operations
 

You already have business operations. They just aren't optimized.

You're getting results, but you know you could be even more profitable, all while working fewer hours.

Case in point, when did you last take a vacation without so much as peeking at your work notifications? How comfortable are you leaving decisions in your team’s hands? If you went off the grid, how much critical knowledge would go with you?

You might be growing fast, but you’re also on the verge of cracking under the pressure. If you stepped away — even for a second — everything you've worked for would take a nosedive. And if you went viral tomorrow or Oprah finally called, you would have a legit problem on your hands. You wouldn’t be able to maintain amazing customer support or high-quality delivery and still get everything done (at least, not without sacrificing even more family time...or sleep).

Something needs to change. Fast.

IT’S TIME TO STRENGTHEN YOUR BUSINESS AND STEP BACK

What if you could be profitable and take time away without worrying whether everything will fall apart? What if you could turn your team members into decision-makers who don’t need your input to make the right choices? What if you could make a few changes to create more money, build your legacy, and leave a lasting impact?

When you restructure your business using the Run Like ClockworkTM methodologies, you can kick back poolside, take that international trip you’ve been dreaming of, or dive into your next project without worrying that profits will tank.

"I feel like I'm 80% there to having a clockwork business. But I literally lack the know how to get the other 20%. Even reading the book, the concepts make sense, but the application of solving the issues that are holding back that 20% is so specific to my business, I didn't think I could do it on my own. And I still don't think I can. That's why I knew I needed to be at the workshop, so that the RLC team could help me see what I was missing."
-- John Briggs, Owner @ Incite Tax
 
 
 
"This workshop was fantastic! I wanted my team to run like clockwork, without my constant input, and now we're well on our way to making that a reality. Adrienne and Tyler were the best hosts. The content was killer and it was just the right amount, not overwhelming. The best part of it was that everything was very actionable + transformational. I loved that the event wasn't just about learning but also doing right there on the spot."

Run Like Clockwork :: Productivity and operational efficiency workshops
 

Our live workshops are designed for Maximum Impact

This isn’t your average operations workshop, it's a small + intimate experience that is hand-crafted to your needs, which is why we only accept 20 businesses into each workshop event. To create a lean, profitable business, you need to spearhead the change. The RLC workshop has your name all over it if you:

  • Are the owner of an established company making multiple six or seven figures a year
  • Hustle like a pro, but know there’s a more sustainable way than staying stuck in the day-to-day
  • Know your team is capable of more, and want them to feel appreciated, trusted, and valuable
  • Want to scale massively, but know it would currently be a logistical nightmare, so you want to take steps to make it seamless
  • Have a vision for what your life + business could look like, and are ready to make it happen

RLC asks you to step up as a leader, take an honest look at where your business is right now, and commit to strategic changes that make a world of difference.

PART I:
PRE-WORK

To get where you’re going, you have to know where you are. You’ll gain a clear, metrics-based understanding of your business’ current state of affairs + you'll meet with us 1:1 to get you fully prepped for our workshop.

Click to continue reading...

By the time we meet up in-person, you’ll:

  • Develop a comprehensive snapshot of what’s working and what isn’t by taking stock of targeted pieces of data
  • Implement time tracking, so you know who’s doing what and what’s blocking your profitability
  • Complete an organizational chart to clarify roles and skill sets
  • Identify your current vision to ground you in your why

PART II: LIVE, IN-PERSON WORKSHOP

You’ll spend two days in a high-energy setting, digging into your culture and operations. You’ll connect with other leaders and create a personalized roadmap for continuous improvement in record time.

Click to continue reading...

On Day One, you’ll:

  • Define your culture, so it promotes empowerment, efficiency, innovation, and trust among all members of your team
  • Analyze your 4D mix (how much you’re doing, deciding, delegating, and designing), so you can embrace your position as the visionary
  • Identify your Queen Bee Role — what makes you profitable and distinct from the competition — so you can focus all your attention on serving it
  • Land on the most important metrics for your business so you know if you’re on track with a glance

On Day Two, you’ll:

  • Adjust team roles, so everyone can zero in on the most profitable use of their time
  • Create better processes — such as SOPs, workflows, and documentation — so you can depend on your business and team
  • Develop a structure for regular operational check-ins, so you can facilitate continuous improvement
  • Craft a customized roadmap to implement everything you’ve learned
  • Set your Operation: Vacation date, so you can step back and enjoy the fruits of your labor

At the end of the workshop, you’ll have a laser focus on what makes you profitable. Plus, you’ll be able to establish a healthier team culture and stronger processes to make everything run like clockwork.

Best of all, Operation: Vacation will be on the books.

PART III:
POST-WORK

When you get back to your desk, the real fun begins. You’ll have three weeks to start putting your action plan into place before our follow-up group call.

Click to continue reading...

Once home, you’ll:

  • Gain lifetime access to six online modules containing all the in-person lessons, plus additional bonus trainings
  • Download exclusive RLC templates, tools, and examples (including project management systems, SOPs, culture-guiding templates, documentation, and more) to save you time and energy
  • Join our follow-up group call to show off your progress and ask questions, now that you’ve begun implementing changes

"Clockwork teaches you to own your business rather than run your business. It will give you more free time, more automated cash and more freedoms to be yourself. I'm grateful for this easy to implement system."

RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK IS YOUR
ONE-WAY TICKET TO OPERATION: VACATION

RLC will show you how to do less and achieve more. You’ll replace burnout with fulfillment, so work will stop sucking and start rocking. When you apply the RLC methodologies through our in-person workshops, you’ll:

  • Become more profitable by focusing your energy and resources on what’s working for you
  • Cultivate a more engaged team by empowering them to become deciders, not just task rabbits
  • Put better processes in place, so everyone knows what to do all the time without asking you a million questions…
  • Design a reliable, actionable roadmap to guide you to achieve your long-term vision even faster
  • Transform from an operator into an owner by establishing a business that runs itself (even when you’re on vacation)

In fact, taking a vacation is part of your homework. When you step away, you’ll have a chance to see what’s working + what’s breaking, so you can focus on targeted fixes for the future.

"Looking back on the event I'm still surprised by just how fun and engaging it was. The group of people who attended the event were so friendly, warm and open... it was impossible not enjoy myself. I really stepped out of my comfort zone + pushed myself to be an active participant, which was really helpful. It was great to get so much feedback from other successful entrepreneurs and the follow up from the RLC team has been super beneficial, they have provided us with so many good resources! Since attending the event it has become abundantly clear that we had to make some staffing changes. Making sure we have the right team members in the right seats with QBRs that will serve the businesses QBRs was really important to us. We have also become much more efficient, + better at prioritizing + dropping projects as needed. I feel much stronger in my ability to make decisions, because our overall vision is much clearer."
-- Emily Doyle, Operations Manager @ Tiny Devotions
 
 
 

 

"This workshop was fun, entertaining + also highly informative. The teaching team has such a great dynamic, it was an MVP combo. We made some great connections and went home with a lot to think about AND implement which was super important to me since I don't like to sit with information for too long. We've taken away SO much from this experience. I'm looking at my business with so much more precision and able to make the right changes."
-- Olivia Chapman, Co-Founder + COO @ Inner Glow Circle

HI, WE'RE RLC...

And our mission is your vision, well, getting you to actually execute it, that is. We meet way too many small business owners with big visions, long to-do lists, really great ideas waiting in queue, and zero time left in their day. 

If you're ready to create a streamlined + successful business operation...you're in the right place.

When you design your business + your team so it can run itself — instead of staying stuck in the weeds — you’ll have the time and freedom to develop a new product or service, write the book you've been putting off, give back to your community, or even start that next business venture you've been daydreaming of.

The Run Like Clockwork Method starts with the principles of Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself by Mike Michalowicz (best-selling author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan, and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur).

At our workshop, we'll help you reimagine your business design. You'll investigate your current reality, pinpoint what’s bottlenecking your growth, and create more efficiency and profitability.

The result: happier customers, happier team members, happier YOU.

RUN LIKE CLOCKWORK WAS FOUNDED BY Author + SPEAKER, MIKE MICHALOWICZ AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY EXPERTS, ADRIENNE DORISON AND TYLER BRANNON.

We've spent years figuring out how to best apply large-scale manufacturing efficiency principles to small business owners like you, the result was Clockwork.

You can learn more about us over here. Or just come meet us at our next workshop! Warning: we're huggers.

 

QUESTIONS ABOUT RLC? LET US SIMPLIFY
(It's what we do, after all)

Run Like Clockwork :: Operations experts Adrienne Dorison and Mike Michalowicz
 

+ Why should I care about better operations?

Your business already has operations, whether you realize it or not, and they’re costing you. Right now, most of them depend on you. As you’ve grown, you’ve become weighed down by more decisions, more tasks, and more responsibility. It’s a drag, right? You didn’t start a business to get shackled to your desk. Better operations will help you break free and make more money.

+ Is this an easy, quick fix for my business?

Nope. This is a process that will require commitment and challenge you, along with your team. Nothing worth having was ever easy!

+ Where did the RLC framework come from?

RLC is based on Clockwork: Design Your Business to Run Itself, by Mike Michalowicz (best-selling author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan, and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur). Taking the core principles of Clockwork, the RLC framework goes a step further. Operational improvement experts Adrienne Dorison and Tyler Brannon guide you through the steps needed to create a profitable business that runs itself.

+ Can’t I just hire a systems expert or a COO?

You can, but it’s not going to fix the core problem. You don’t need another hire (yet), you need an entire culture shift. RLC tackles your business operations from the top down, so that when you do hire a systems expert (or empower the one you already have) they’re as invested in your success as you are.

+ Who needs to come to the workshop?

You, the business owner and decision maker, need to come — even if you won’t be implementing the changes. We've priced additional registrations at a significantly lower investment because we want to highly encourage you to bring additional members of your team, but if you’re not here, you’ll struggle to cultivate trust between yourself and your team members. You need to believe in the power of better operations before you hand over the reins. You’re going to have to let go of the doing, so you can start leading. We've made the additional team member investment a small add-on to encourage you bringing as many key team members as possible.

+ Why is the workshop in person?

When you dedicate two full days to streamlining your business, you’ll get powerful results, fast. You’ll connect and learn from with other leaders. Plus, when we get to know you, we’ll be able to provide more in-depth, personalized support.

+ Is this one of those huge conferences?

No, we intentionally keep our workshops small + intimate so that we can truly know you + your business + provide in-depth + personalized feedback and solutions. We have a limited number of spots for each live workshop, and they fill fast. *Workshop capacity is 20 business owners.

+ Will you be covering tools we can use in our business?

Yes and we will show you how to implement the tools we suggest during the event. We will make the tools as “plug and play” as possible but you’ll have to take the lead on implementation. Business is nuanced and we want to teach you + your team how to think differently -- and then you’ll have tools + resources to support that.

+ How does RLC stand out from other frameworks?

We put people first, addressing human beings as the missing piece of the puzzle that other frameworks forget.

We keep it simple. You won’t find any confusing jargon and technical language here. We translate everything into accessible lessons and strategies — without boring you to tears.

We help you step away, so you can test your new operations. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have your next vacation on the calendar.

HERE’S WHAT TO DO NEXT:

  • APPLY NOW FOR AN UPCOMING WORKSHOP {you'll be able to indicate here which dates you want to attend}.

  • The RLC team will reach out to you with an acceptance OR with next steps if we don't think this is the right fit for you just yet.

  • If you STILL have questions, pop over here + we'll get them answered!
