Liz August is the owner of Simplify, Simplify, a consulting and outsourcing agency for overwhelmed heart-centered fempreneurs stuck between strategy and implementation. Liz simplifies the particles that make growing an online business difficult, no matter what stage you’re in. After streamlining their strategy, coaches and service providers are better able to DIY their business operations and many even delegate their websites, CRMs, social media, and more to the team.
Liz’s team allows you to get back to being present and doing what you love by connecting you with the right tech and systems, operational strategy, and done-for-you services. When she’s not simplifying businesses, Liz runs Netflix marathons and hangs with her husband, daughter, and schnauzer. You can find Liz August at www.simplifysimplify.me
