Want to escape the business owner trap and create the freedom and lifestyle that you always wanted when you started your business?
Our special guest is David Jenyns, founder of systemHUB software and author of SYSTEMology – Create Time, Reduce Errors and Scale Your Profits with Proven Business Systems.
David’s entrepreneurial journey began in his early twenties when he sold Australia’s most beloved sporting venue, the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Since then, his business experience has spanned from franchising retail clothing stores to founding one of Australia’s most trusted digital agencies, Melbourne SEO Services.
In 2016, he successfully systemised himself out of that business, hired a CEO and stepped back from the daily operations. Through this process, he became a systems devotee, founding SYSTEMology.
Today, his mission is to free all business owners worldwide from the daily operations of running their business. To achieve this, Jenyns spends most of his time supporting the growing community of certified SYSTEMologists as they help business owners implement SYSTEMology. He also delivers workshops, keynote addresses and hosts his own popular podcast – Business Processes Simplified.
