Audit (Trim the Fat)

Today I began the fight to automate, consolidate, and trim the fat from my business, by auditing my business workflows. Now to some the word audit may be a bad word. But in this context I assure you it all good. I started the process today by writing down my daily schedule. This is my audit stage. You can’t cut if you don’t know what you do.
