Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show

I am your Special Host Richard Wray

Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.

My very special guest today is Phillip Stemann ...

Phillip is a programmer who started coding at age 13 and has since founded multiple companies, worked as a freelancer, and now specializes in SEO. He discusses the challenges of scaling a one-person business, emphasizing the importance of creating standard operating procedures and setting clear goals and expectations with clients and employees. Phillip stresses the need for transparency and planning to minimize distractions and maintain work-life balance. He shares tips like using visual cues to signal availability and writing daily reflections to identify when it's time to hire help. Overall, Phillip's approach centers on being proactive, organized, and communicative as an entrepreneur.

Key Moments:

  • Phillip started programming at age 13 and was fascinated by how code could create visual outputs. This sparked his lifelong interest in technology and programming.
  • Phillip has founded multiple companies over the years, gaining valuable experience in both programming and business. He has learned important lessons from both successes and failures.
  • SEO (search engine optimization) is a complex and evolving field, with many ranking factors that companies need to focus on to improve their online visibility and traffic.
  • When transitioning from a one-person operation to building a team, creating detailed standard operating procedures (SOPs) is crucial to onboard new hires efficiently.
  • Maintaining focus and productivity amidst constant distractions is a major challenge. Philip uses tools like colored lights to signal his availability and minimize interruptions.
  • Setting clear boundaries and expectations with clients is important, including being transparent about when you are available and unavailable to communicate.
  • Defining key performance indicators (KPIs) helps both the business owner and clients evaluate the success of the collaboration.
  • Reflecting on one's daily work through a journaling practice can help identify patterns and signals that it's time to bring on additional support.
  • Phillip is a very structured and organized planner, using tools to map out his weeks and days in advance to maximize productivity.
  • Balancing work and personal time is an ongoing challenge, but stepping away from work is crucial to maintain motivation and avoid burnout.
