About Kaci Ackerman

Kaci went from dental office manager to being furloughed due to covid to running a six-figure business in less than two years. Kaci is a Certified Business Manager and ClickUp expert. She has helped over 500 business owners streamline their businesses with ClickUp.

She saves CEOs 10 hours a week and increases their profit by 25% with a robust and automated ClickUp system. Some fun facts, Kaci is the queen of typos and truth bombs, a lover of stouts and porters, a Netflix binger, a sports fan, a bike rider, and friends obsessed.

 

Using Project Management Software Before Your Business Has Grown

Even if you’re in business by yourself, a project management tool still has its place. Kaci stresses the importance of building in the systems now that you’d want for your business later on when it’s bigger. By setting up project management systems now, you’ll be better positioned for your growth when it occurs.

And for the time being, this software will still help you stay organized and on top of tasks. It will keep priorities front of mind and help you keep track of all the minutiae of business much more comprehensively than pen and paper would.

 

The Many Uses of Project Management Tools

No matter the size of your business, project management software is crucial. Kaci describes some of the common applications of these tools. This ranges from personal reminders, scheduling help, follow-ups with potential clients, and so much more. 

I’ll admit that these programs can look a bit overwhelming at first. However, it’s a lot less overwhelming than running a business without them. It’s worth learning so that you can save time and spend that time on what will really grow your business rather than the nitty-gritty functions of everyday operations.

QUOTES

“Build systems for where you want to be, not where you are right now.” [13:19]

“It is pretty well-known that most clients need like five to eight follow-ups before they say yes. So if you think they’re ghosting you or not going to work with you, it may not be true.” [36:11]

“If you want to start treating yourself as a CEO and your business as a business, not a side hustle, these systems should be a priority.” [38:38]
