Creating systems is definitely something you should make priority #1 if you want to be living the dream of lying on a beach with your family/friends, while you’re business is running without you.

No matter how much we may love what we do now, we’re inevitably going to get tired of it someday.

That’s why it’s so important to start phasing yourself out of the day-to-day running of the business as much as possible right now!

In a nutshell, as a 1st step I’d recommend:
a) Adding all your regular tasks into Google calendar, then

b) Hire a VA through http://www.remotestaff.com.au to take care of all the admin-related tasks, share the calendar with them, and start teaching them/delegating the tasks 1-at-a-time.

c) For any other tasks you may need done (web / design related etc.), you can find great, affordable, talented remote workers at http://www.vworker.com

While it will take a few months to smooth your systems out, the initial $ investment (from approx. $600 per month) in doing the above, will come back to you very quickly through increase in productivity!

Many hands make light work, and finding good team members is essential if you ever want to take regular time off from your business, without everything grinding to a halt..!

Hope this helps,
