76 - Leveraging Automation (with Katya Sarmiento)

Entrepreneurs are getting so hyper-productive they can take one day off each week...

and it’s our job to figure out how they’re doing it. 

It’s my pleasure to introduce to you my guest, 4-Day Workweek entrepreneur and proponent of avoiding burnout and building a business that supports your lifestyle Katya Sarmiento.

Katya is an expert in technology and systems for online businesses and the founder of ReachANDMakeMillions.com, providing done-for-you tech services for successful, bookedout entrepreneurs and coaches who want to scale up their business and start earning passive income.

I really enjoyed the raw and real personality Katya brought to this interview.  She totally shoots it to us straight without sugar-coating her journey as an online entrepreneur.  I gained some lasting insight that I’ll definitely be applying to my own business, and for this I’m grateful.  Since Katya’s a fellow-systems and processes geek, we’re definitely going to have her back on the podcast for another round in the very near future.
