Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in business services but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Lisa McHargue, Owner of Lisa McH Digital Organizing, located in Lincoln, NE, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I'm a digital organizer who helps online business owners create custom systems to manage their files, inboxes, and all the behind-the-scenes of their business.
Tell us about yourself
I'm a former teacher who learned quickly that you have to learn to manage a lot of files if you want to survive! A colleague saw my Google Drive and couldn't believe how organized and easy to use it was. After that encounter, I started helping teachers organize their Google Drives, and it's grown from there! I still work with teachers but also help business owners. I've organized Google Drive, Gmails, Canvas, Asanas, computer hard drives, and more! I love creating filing systems and file naming conventions for clients. I get to support so many amazing business owners by making doing business easier for them.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
It's every time a client comes back to me and tells me how much lighter they feel and how they get to spend more time doing what they love instead of fighting digital clutter. A surprising number of my clients end up crying happy tears!
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Juggling all the parts of the business. As a solopreneur, I not only do the organizing, I'm the marketer, tech person, customer service, and all the pieces that go into running a business.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Start simple. Invest in yourself. Do what feels like integrity for you. You don't have to listen to the "big gurus" and do things the way they did.
Where can people find you and your business?
