Small Business is tough. It’s also very rewarding. I’ve worked with 1000s of business owners and I have seen what works and what doesn’t.
My name is Frances Schagen.
I am a mother of 4;
a small business owner,
active in my community
and I love traveling.
I owned Crystal Clear Bookkeeping Ltd for 15 years. I learned a ton and had the privilege of being invited deep into 100s of small businesses. I studied the difference between my clients who were wildly successful and those who struggled. The successful ones ignored most of the standard business advice and they carefully designed their business to work for them.
I took everything I learned about why Small Business is so overwhelming and how to make it easier. This journey led to Your Effortless Business – a book about making your business easier for you so you can give it your all. I continue to research, listen and learn. I’ve learned that most of us are trying to build a successful business in this new economy using an out-dated operating system.
I dove in deeper to find out what an operating system that works for us would look like. I learned that it is about people, not management. Systems are designed to help and support people, not as labour saving exercises. I realized that the 3 levers we have in our businesses to make change are crafting an amazing experience, designing your environment to support everyone and building a value exchange that makes everyone happy.
I help people who have been in business for more than 10 years build an operating system that works and makes their business effortless.
