024: Kevin Schmidt - Finding Contentment In Work And Beyond

biz & life done well with Peter Wilson

My guest is Kevin Schmidt. We worked together at a "dot com" business in the late 90's. Kevin has always struck me as a man of contentment. Calm and focused, even when the world around was not. We recently reconnected via Instagram so I asked him for an interview. We cover a multitude of topics including contentment, meditation, gardening, the world of work, and poetry.Kevin's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kevineschmidt/ @kevineschmidtFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/certifiedhappinessengineer

How to Document & Offload Processes with Kevin Schmidt

I Love Bookkeeping

Kevin has been hustling his entire life. Multiple streams of revenue have always been a focus for him and that has manifested into multiple businesses during his adult life. [6:00] Math had always been a favorite subject for Kevin, and he worked with his father in an accounting role during high school and college, but eventually wanted to do something different. He decided on teaching as a profession and did that for a few years while growing his side businesses at the same time. Bookkeeping was a natural fit as an additional source of revenue, so Kevin started looking for clients and now it’s his full-time gig. [10:40] Kevin discovered Bookkeeper Business Launch through a simple Google search and enrolled while still working full time. In the interim time since starting the course, Kevin has picked up 26 clients, some of which have multiple entities. [15:30] Kevin attributes his success to his hustler mentality, but he also believes that anyone that is looking for an additional source of income or a new career could be a good fit for Bookkeeper Business Launch. [17:05] Kevin’s goal is to find someone to work for him that can take some of the tasks off his hands so that he can focus on growing the business. The trouble is that each client seems to do things a little bit differently which can make it difficult to establish a process that someone else can take care of. [20:15] Kevin currently does not have a niche, which is one of the reasons he’s experiencing challenges. Niching down streamlines things when trying to establish processes since the clients are somewhat the same, but Kevin doesn’t plan on niching down at this time. [22:25] We always think people are our answer to feeling overwhelmed with work, but it really starts with processes. Start with the tasks that are pretty much always the same no matter the client and begin documenting those. They are the low hanging fruit for creating processes. [25:20] There will always be unique aspects to every client, but ideally that should only comprise a maximum of 20% of the total work. You have to identify the processes that are common among all clients and start with the easiest. They may only take a few minutes to do but over the course of a month and multiple clients it can add up to hours. [27:20] Once you complete the task audit, rank them in order of easiest to most difficult. Once you identify the activity that’s common to all clients ask yourself whether you can stop doing it, whether it can be improved, whether it can be automated, or if it can be outsourced. [29:30] Virtual assistants are the next step. Take one of those tasks and send them to your VA first, then once they’ve mastered that, go down the list and keep giving them more tasks to do. [31:20] To document your tasks, get a screen recording software and record and narrate yourself doing the task. Send the video file to Rev.com to get it transcribed. Now, you have multiple formats for someone to understand exactly what they need to do for a given task. [34:50] Don’t record your tasks as you want them to be, record them as they are. As you become more familiar with the tasks and get in the groove of someone else doing them, you can start to look at ways of improving those processes. [36:30] For unique clients, just refer to a client-specific process in the task. Unless those clients are large, the extra processes should be very small. The bulk of the training should be in the common processes among all clients. [40:00] Kevin’s first goal is to go through his clients’ common tasks and start making the recordings for them after figuring out the tasks that are the easiest to outsource. He’s also going to go through Outstanding Processes and Procedures to get a head start. Mentioned in this episode: Books by Schmidt

LAKE LIFE WKND 019 Kevin Schmidt is from Fergus Falls and after a couple trips to Alaska with his brother he decided to buy a fishing boat and start a business fishing Wild Salmon. For the past few years he together with his wife and two kids have been going to Alaska in June for a couple months to fish. Most of the catch is being sold to the local fish canning company but they bring a couple ton of salmon back to Lakes Country where they smoke it and sell to local restaurants and food co-ops. Listen to the full interview in our latest podcast recording and find more lake life stories on our daily updated website www.lakelifewknd.com #getoutandexplore #welovelakelife Sunrise Salmon was formed in 2014 by Kevin and Stephanie Schmidt of Fergus Falls, MN. They spend their time outside of the summer fishing season raising their four young daughters and spreading the love of wild salmon throughout Western MN and Eastern ND. Each summer they make the trek to Bristol Bay, Alaska to the town of Naknek. This is where they make fish camp every June-July for the annual sockeye salmon run. They are considered set netters, who target one of Alaska’s greatest gems- Kvichak River Reds. This is done with skiffs and a series of large nets and buoy systems on the edge of the bay. They feel extremely blessed to have been given this opportunity to live their summers marked by high & low tide, the barely setting sun and salt water on their faces. The 2019 season will be their twelfth season of fishing in Alaska.
