Do you want to own a business that can run without you? Whether you want to earn more to give more away, baby proof your business, or take your time back, this episode of the Lead with Love podcast is for you.
In this episode, I get cozy with my dear friend and former client Adrienne Dorison where we talk about how to take back your time as a business leader and give back without sacrificing growth.
Adrienne Dorison is the Co-Founder of Run Like Clockwork™ where she equips CEO's to design a business + team that can run itself, like clockwork. Based on the best-selling book, Clockwork, Adrienne's work has helped hundreds of business leaders increase their profit margins, empower their teams, and take an unplugged vacation.
Adrienne has spent the past 10+ years in the field of operational efficiency, and has since created the most simplistic approach to making your business ultra-efficient.
She's personally passionate about baking in generosity into business models, and she believes when we earn more money, we can give more away. Adrienne lives in St. Petersburg, Florida with her husband, their 2 dogs and soon-to-be baby.

Quitter by John Acuff
“I had this really limiting belief around money for awhile, until I realized that when I could earn more, it would give me the opportunity to give more away.” [4:32]
“I don’t need my clients to like me all the time. I need them to move closer to their goals, which sometimes isn’t really fun.” [8:50]
“Money was a stresser. It was something that caused conflict between my parents, and I never remember really having any.” [14:18]
“I felt like if people didn’t know what I was doing at the start, then there was no way I was going to get people into those early sessions.” [29:54]
“It’s just been really cool to see the ripple effect of me just putting myself out there and doing the work that I really felt called to do.” [36:12]
“I think that the assumption was that we were fully clockworked. This is a brand new business, and even though we have the expertise and we know how to do it, it doesn’t mean that everything has been done. Even if you know everything, it still takes time to implement.” [51:53]
“That’s what this is for. Whether it’s positive or negative, we want you to have a business that runs without you, so that it can create that freedom for you.” [54:42]
