I love being a company of one employee. I don’t love managing technology. Configuring name servers and firewalls is not on my bucket list.
As my business expanded to offer online courses, run complex campaigns, and stop hackers, I had to add services on top of my Wordpress website.
It was tedious to integrate all the pieces and I spent hundreds of hours testing and troubleshooting processes end-to-end.
I wanted a way out and looked at many options. Kajabi was my favorite, but $149/month felt pricey. Sadly, this was a bad assumption.
Until ... I tested my assumption by itemizing each component in the solution.
Total annual cost = $1,936
You probably see where this story is going...
Kajabi annual cost = $1,788
It only took a few minutes and a few data points to debunk my assumption.
I invested a couple of workdays to recreate my content on the Kajabi platform, and now I’m in a better place financially – and mentally.
Is your organization running on long-existing assumptions that have been “absorbed” into the way of working? It’s time you made them explicitly known, test that they are still valid, and put a plan in place to periodically revalidate.
Here are some assumptions I hear from clients:
- Our dashboards are very successful. We get “___” viewers every month.
- We don’t need to set targets. Anyway, our results are amazing.
- The team uses best practices so dashboards are intuitive to executives.
- Storyboards take too long. We connect to data and start making charts.
Which of these assumptions (or others) make your life difficult? Sometimes there’s a solution as simple as the one I discovered for myself.
Comment and let me know.
